Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Public Participation Network (DLR PPN) is an independent umbrella network of community & voluntary, environmental and social inclusion groups active within the local authority area of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown. The Public Participation Network is the main link through which the local authority connects with these groups, in addition to usual consultation processes carried out by the local authority.
The aims of the DLR PPN are
To enable people, groups and organisations within the community & voluntary, environmental and social inclusion sectors to give voice to a diverse range of views and interests within the local government system and participate in policy making and oversight activities.
To strengthen the ability of people, groups and organisations to contribute in a positive way to the community in which they reside or are active within.
To act as an information hub for local community and voluntary, environmental and social inclusion groups and organisations
DLR PPN provides a structure through which its member groups can have a voice on the local authority’s policy making and oversight committees. It also provides its member groups with opportunities for networking, learning, communication and sharing of information.
