Dublin City Local Economic and Community Plan 2016 - 2021

Closed 30 Jun 2015

Opened 1 Jun 2015


The first Local Economic and Community Plan is being developed for Dublin City setting out high level goals, objectives and actions needed to promote and support economic development and local and community development over the next six years. 

Early in 2015, the two bodies tasked with developing the Plan (the Local Community Development Committee and the Economic and Enterprise Development Strategic Policy Committee) identified twelve key social and economic goals for the City, to be addressed over the lifetime of the Plan.

The focus of the Plan is on the social and economic issues and goals that can be addressed by Dublin City Council, local businesses and community and voluntary organisations and state bodies.  

Submissions are sought in relation to the high level goals which are broad and aspirational, and when finalised following a period of public consultation, will form the basis for the development of more specific objectives and actions. 

We would like to hear your ideas and priorities on economic and community issues that you believe should be taken into account in setting the high level goals for the formation of this plan.

Further information on the consultation is available here.

You are invited to make a submission by 30 June 2015.

What happens next

Following the period of public consultation during June 2015, the Advisory Steering Group for the Local Economic and Community Plan will consider all submissions and prepare a revised set of high level goals for the City.  Through further research, engagement and consultation a series of objectives and actions will be developed to address the high level goals.
