Question: Councillor M. Baker:
To ask the Manager how many full time members of staff are dedicated to each of our flagship parks?
There are 80 staff directly employed in Parks & Landscape Services for upkeep of parks, open spaces and street tree maintenance throughout the County (a small number are working part time). There are five Flagship Parks altogether and these are maintained by staff assigned to the district within which they are located. There are currently three Parks districts. The staff are assigned to a district and not a specific park and are deployed as required to cover a wide range of duties and tasks within the district.District: Cabinteely/Loughlinstown Flagship Parks: Cabinteely, People’s Park & Killiney Parks staff assigned to district: 36 District: Marlay Flagship Park: Marlay Parks staff assigned to district: 20 District: Mount Anville/Blackrock Flagship Park: Blackrock Parks staff assigned to district: 24
