Parklets

#StreetParkletBeta

Status: Live

Current Status: Ongoing

Project Stage(s): Concept

Live Trial Location(s): Onstreet

(What are the Project Stages?)
(Why are trials removed?)

CHALLENGE:

In many locations we have narrow pavements which make it difficult to provide on-pavement seating. 

PROPOSITION:

Should we adopt the concept of parklets from the U.S.? Would they be a useful solution for the public? Businesses can apply to put tables and chairs on the pavement...could they apply to use car parking spaces in a similar way?

DESCRIPTION:

A trial parklet was placed onstreet.

OUTCOMES:

This trial cost Dublin City Council under €6,000.
(€370 for iteration 1, €4,700 for iteration 2, €300 for iteration 3 and €300 for iteration 4.)
