Cherry Orchard Action Plan Public Consultation

Closed 24 Jul 2017

Opened 12 Jul 2017


Dublin City Council intends to prepare an action plan for Cherry Orchard, Dublin 10. The action plan will enable Dublin City Council to set in motion the delivery of a Village Centre, which has long been overdue in the area. It will also enable the Council to gain support and agreement from other statutory and private sector interests to shape, fund and support community development, employment, education and lifelong learning. 
The Action Plan is non-statutory. It seeks to provide a framework for community regeneration and the future redevelopment of Cherry Orchard, which struggles with social deprivation. 
Making a submission or answering the questions below allows you to give your views on the what Cherry Orchard should aspire to be in 2022 and what you want to see in the village centre.
