Child Safety for Seabury Estate, Malahide

Child Safety for Seabury Estate, Malahide

We are asking Fingal County Council to implement new child safety measures for the Seabury Estate in Malahide.

Why is this important?

We are asking Fingal County Council to implement new child safety measures for the Seabury Estate in Malahide.

Child Safety Measures Needed:
1. New ramp between Seabury Place and Seabury Crescent
2. New signage to say 'Slow Down - Children at play' along Seabury Lane and Seabury Crescent
3. Speed limit to be reduced (currently it's 50km/hr)
4. Business Work Vans are parked out on the road (we kindly request that they park in their driveways or elsewhere)
________________________________________________

Why are we requesting these safety measures?

- In recent years, many of the local, younger children have been playing outside on the road.
- They usually play here in the cul-de-sac or just beyond the dangerous junction where Seabury Lane meets Seabury Crescent.
- Signs to indicate appropriate driving speeds / children at play are not clearly visible.
- It has been noted that some cars drive from Seabury Place onto Seabury Lane at high speeds and with little regard for the children at play.
- Many cars also turn from Estuary Road onto Seabury Lane and drive at high speeds, despite the small ramp which is about half way down the road.
- There are cars parked along Seabury Lane, including 2 or sometimes 3 large white work vans parked along Seabury Lane which make it more difficult for drivers to see children playing up ahead.

How it will be delivered

We will email the signatures we collect to Fingal County Council.

After contacting Fingal County Council 2 years ago, I was told that there was a plan to install a new ramp at this location, however, it still hasn't happened. I'm opening up this petition again to gather more signatures.
