Members of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council passed a motion to write to Mr Callinan inviting him to a briefing about the forthcoming closure of Stepaside garda station.

The motion was proposed by Labour's Lettie McCarthy, who said it would allow planners to tell Mr Callinan of the potential for further growth in Stepaside's 20,000-strong population.

"If he was fully briefed he would not have made the decision to close the station. There's so much planned development that hasn't been realised," she said.

Stepaside, with 34 officers, is one of 100 stations due to be closed this year.
