Dublin City Council Raises Concerns Over Environmental Impact of Driveway Rentals Near Transport Hubs

The rising demand for parking spaces in Dublin suburbs near Luas and Dart lines, as well as Dublin Airport, has given rise to a cottage industry of driveway rentals. However, Dublin City Council expresses concern about potential environmental damage caused by residents replacing green spaces with concrete and asphalt to accommodate more cars. The council notes instances of individuals paving their gardens and renting out parking spaces, particularly near transport hubs. This trend not only contributes to environmental pollution but also increases the risk of flooding, as impermeable surfaces prevent natural water absorption. The council urges residents to opt for permeable materials like gravel or brick paving when creating additional parking spaces and encourages environmentally friendly alternatives to curb the negative impact on local ecosystems.
