The Lord Mayor opened the meeting by outlining the process by which the meeting would be conducted in order to ensure the smooth running of the meeting.

Minutes:

Mr John O’Hara, Dublin City Planner, gave the background to the process and it was agreed that when Report No 176/2017 was reached, each motion would be taken in index order, unless grouped with similar motions. Each motion would be deemed to be proposed by the submitting Councillor and seconded by the Lord Mayor.

The meeting adjourned at 4.05pm to allow time for Group Leaders to agree on a format to deal with motions where the situation arose that the approval of any motion impacted on other following motions. The meeting resumed at 4.50pm. The Lord Mayor then informed the Members that he was disregarding a vote taken on Motion No 1012 before the recess and that this was allowed under Standing Order No 53. The voting record in question was destroyed and forms no part of these minutes. The meeting broke for refreshments at 6.05pm and resumed at 6.40pm.

 

The Deputy Lord Mayor, Councillor Rebecca Moynihan, took the chair in the absence of the Lord Mayor from 7.20pm to 7.30pm. There was a further adjournment of the meeting from 7.35pm to 8.10pm to allow Members further discussion time to agree on a possible composite motion.
