Chronic shortage of school places in Naas

Pipers Hill School Campus

Pipers Hill School Campus: Put forward a motion to request that the owners of the Pipers Hill School campus take urgent action on the traffic chaos that is currently experienced at peak times in this area. I specially requested that they look for planning permission for an additional entrance / exit. I also requested that they make dedicated space for cyclists entering on campus so to avoid any further collisions with pedestrians on site. I await their response to the official request

Traffic Warden for Pipers Hill

That this council assigns a traffic warden or start a junior wardens program for the Pipers Hill School campus both inside the site and outside on the Kilcullen Road. 

Budget for two traffic wardens

Budget motion: That we include an additional 2 posts for traffic wardens needed at Pipers Hill Campus in Naas and on the public road outside the campus.  Which was refused
