Since 2011 Councillor Kieran Binchy has represented the Lansdowne area on Dublin City Council, and worked with Dublin 4 residents on a range of issues such as traffic calming, tackling dereliction and protecting street trees.

With the new electoral boundaries, he hopes that the residents of Ballsbridge will also support his work.

  • Kieran secured a bye-law to regulate waste collection in the city, so that operators can now only collect on Mondays. This ensures that bags and bins are not left out every night, helping to keep Ballsbridge and Lansdowne clean.

 

  • Kieran is prioritising flood protection works and gully cleaning so that residents of Ballsbridge are protected from future flooding.

 

  • Kieran continues to seek traffic solutions for residents of Lansdowne Park, including traffic calming and yellow boxes.

 

  • Kieran worked to protect the street trees of Ballsbridge, and passed a motion prohibiting the City Council parks section from cutting down trees without first consulting with local residents. Kieran has also worked to ensure that street trees are properly pruned, that suitable new trees are planted, and that gutters and roads are kept clear of leaves in autumn.

 

  • Kieran shared the concerns of local residents about the effect of the weekly markets on the Grand Canal, and made submissions to support residents during the planning process.

 

  • Kieran has sought solutions to ensure that Herbert Park is free from anti-social behaviour.

 

  • He has also supported the recent City Council budget allocation for much-needed works for the park and its facilities.
