Municipal District: 19 May 2023
Motion: That the council provide an update on the progress of the Outdoor Youth Facilities project in Celbridge.
Report: The report highlighting the outcomes of the consultation held last year was made available of the Council website and the report and its outcomes were highlighted on social media. The report was also distributed to the community organisations on the steering committee. It was also publicised by Dublin City University. The Council is currently consulting with the various secondary schools in Celbridge who participated in the initial consultation. This involves asking the students to design hangout areas, teen playgrounds, ball park and outdoor gym. These will be used to inform the design of the facilities and the brief for designers that are procured to develop designs. It is planned to feedback these designs again to the teenagers once they are developed. It is hoped to progress this over the Summer. Once the designs are completed we hope to engage with the community regarding potential locations.
