The Environment and Transportation Department (E&T) of Dublin City Council have informed me that they have suspended the Finglas Village Renewal project until further notice following notification from the National Transport Authority (NTA) that, although the scheme has much merit, other funding requirements for 2015 mean that they are unlikely to be in a position to fund the scheme in 2015. The scheme proposal was developed with funding from the NTA. As a result of the NTA's notification the E&T Department will be suspending the implementation of the project until further notice.
I am seriously disappointed at this unexpected development. I have asked E&T for a full report setting-out the details of this decision. I will update you as soon as I have further information.
