ADDITIONAL dog litter bins have been provided at Newbridge House after representations were made on behalf of local residents by the Green Party.

Mark Henry, the Green Party representative for the Swords and Donabate areas, has welcomed the range of improvements being made in Newbridge Demesne by Fingal County Council this year. 

“Newbridge is a fantastic local amenity and I very much welcome the council’s investment in improving it this year,” Mr Henry said. “The council has installed new paths for buggies and wheelchairs, the courtyard has been much improved, and new animals and an improved visitor centre are on the way.”

However, despite these positive developments, Mr Henry said regular visitors to the park have reported increasing problems with dog fouling.

“This could potentially affect the health of the many young children who come to use the playground, as well as being a danger to active park users like joggers,” he stated.

At the request of local residents, Mr Henry has now secured additional dog litter bins at the Donabate pedestrian exit. This will bring the total number of dog litter bins in the park to six.
