DublinTown lunched a Renewal Proposal for Dublin City Centre
March 7, DublinTown officially launched its renewal proposal and five-year plan to improve commercial life in Dublin City Centre.
The strategic plan for 2023-27 contains numerous objectives to improve the business landscape in Dublin, including being a proactive and constructive voice on major issues facing the city, such as climate change, encouraging people to come back to the city following Covid-19 and supporting beneficial redevelopments.
Cól Campbell, Family Business Owner of Bewley’s Café Grafton Street and DublinTown Chairman: “The pandemic period has been incredibly disruptive and difficult for our members. During this time DublinTown has rapidly adapted and responded to the shifting landscape to meet the needs of its members. As we look forward to the next five years, our focus is on repairing the damage done to our city centre by the pandemic and giving businesses a strong voice on the future direction of the city.”
DublinTown Chief Executive, Richard Guiney added: “Our plan includes providing more essential services for the benefit of the business community and their customers. If renewed we will make significant investments in next generation Christmas lights, will represent member interests with external stakeholders, will fully restore our street cleaning services and will re-establish our training and advice for businesses. DublinTown advocates for the city driving and adapting to change, rather than resisting it. In doing this, we will seek to bring key stakeholders together and advocate for all parts of our city working in harmony, from institutions to national and local Government, to businesses and community groups. We are all stakeholders in Dublin’s future and we must all be committed to working hard together for the benefit of all.”
