86 underground car spaces for Shackleton Hall. More on street parking along the Crescent, including more visitor spots.
Visitor spots across the estate - yes there needs to be more. An over flow car park would be ideal. Paul/Barry do something proactive and approach the management company or residents committee?
Roughly a 12 - 15 minute walk to the 25a bus stop (Merrion Square) on the new road through the Paddocks. Probably closer than going to the village.
Hopefully as demand increases within the SDZ public transport will. Paul/Barry have you approached any local councillors or TD's with your concerns? At least the foundations are in place with the train and bus. Regarding the train, I know 3 neighbours that use it daily. It is a busy line at peak time. It was full leaving Heuston around 1640 last week.
The mentality to try drag your own estate down on a public forum based on some concerns is beyond me. Barry stated every tenant relying on part V will be on social welfare. More nonsense talk. Paul/Barry have you spoken to a credible source regarding how the Part V apartments will affect the value of your home?
The residents in shackelton are lovely people but we shouldnt sit back and allow it to be destroyed by greedy developers who want to maximise profits. Look at any other settled estate in lucan, it has ample parking, roads big enough for 2 cars to pass, green spaces for kids to play, foothpaths that people can walk on as cars arent parked on them. Small kids should play on green areas very near their home, not on the road like it is now nor should they have to walk 5 minutes to this fantasic park that we are promised which hasnt even been started yet
