Printer-friendly version

Dublin City Council’s Elected Members have been concerned for some time with the proposals for development in the Moore Street Area and with their possible effects on the historic fabric of the area, including the National Monument known as 14-17 Moore Street.

A Special City Council meeting was convened on the 19th of November 2012 to discuss and agree a way forward on this matter. At this meeting a motion was carried stating,

“That the Members agree to set up a Moore Street Advisory Committee to comprise seven elected members, with secretariat and ancillary facilities to be provided by Dublin City Council.  The purpose of the Committee is to review, report on, and make recommendations to the Council in respect of the overall Moore Street Area Development, with particular focus and emphasis on the preservation, use and development of the 1916 GPO Evacuation Route and the Moore Street Buildings occupied by the rebels in the final days of the Rising.  The Committee will report back to the City Council at the earliest possible date”.

The Moore Street Advisory Committee was duly formed and Members appointed to it by the City Council. The committee has met on a number of occasions and has produced the attached report which was adopted by the Members of Dublin City Council, on the 8th April, 2013.
