Playback: The Phoenix Park - A Sustainable Future
On Monday 10th August we hosted an online public meeting to discuss a sustainable future for the Phoenix Park.
A podcast of the meeting is now available here.
Was the Phoenix Park a better place during the lockdown? Was the reduction in motor traffic the main reason for this? How was the decision to reopen the perimeter gates made? What are the options now for securing a sustainable future for the Phoenix Park?
