  • After a tender competition in early 2016, Mitchell and Associates were appointed in March 2016 to oversee the compilation of Local Environment Improvement Plan (LEIP) for Ringsend and Irishtown.
  • Consultations commenced in January 2016, beginning with an open morning in Ringsend Library. Initial internal consultations with relevant Dublin City Council departments took place during March and April 2016. Public workshops were held in RICC on 8th June 2016 and 7th December 2016 to canvas local opinion and focus the ideas already collected with a view to producing a draft plan.

The Draft Ringsend Irishtown Local Environment Improvement Plan (LEIP) will be displayed on the Dublin City Council Website and in Ringsend Library and Ringsend Irishtown Community Centre for a period of six weeks from Wednesday 18th January 2017 until close of business on Tuesday 28th February 2017. Comments and submissions can be sent during this time to southeast@dublincity.ie or South East Area Office, Dublin City Council, Block 2, Floor 4, Civic Offices, Dublin 8.

Following that the plan as amended will be brought to the South East Area Committee of Dublin City Council for adoption in 2017.
