PPN Bulletin

PPN Updates

We are delighted to announce that we have a new Support Worker in Dublin City PPN.  Beatriz will join our Resource Worker, Ruth, on 12 July and we are very excited to have her join the team.  We will send out her work email address and work phone number, when she begins, and we hope she finds her new role interesting and inspiring.

Linkage Groups

This week, the Planning and Urban Form linkage group met on Monday night, ahead of their Strategic Policy Committee (SPC) meeting on 29 June which you can watch here.

Linkage groups are bridges between the SPCs and the wider PPN and everyone is welcome to attend linkage group meetings.  At present we have linkage groups for the Arts, Traffic, Planning and Environment SPCs, and new groups are being formed.

If you are a member of Dublin City PPN, you can drop into any linkage group meetings to find out more about the themes and issues being discussed, and you can decide if the concerns resonate with you and your member group.

To that end, we would like to invite everyone to the next Planning and Urban Form Linkage meeting on Thursday 09 September from 6.00pm – 8.00pm on Zoom.  Andrew Montague will make a presentation to the group about the Dublin City Development Plan and how to write submissions.  Andrew will take questions after the presentation, and we hope this linkage group meeting will be very well attended. 

More details to follow shortly; everyone is invited, everyone is welcome.

Similarly, the Housing Linkage group also has a guest speaker coming to talk to the group on 15 July between 6.00pm – 7.00pm on Zoom.  Eimear McCormack will make a presentation and take questions from the group.  Eimear is the coordinator of the Healthy Homes Programme, which aims to support older people to remain living at home, in their community, rather than going into residential care, and Eimear will be available to talk about this programme on Thursday 15 July. 

More details to follow shortly; everyone is invited, everyone is welcome.
