Fingal Development Plan 2023-2029

This information page is to assist PPN Groups who wish to make a submission to the “Fingal The County Development Plan 2023 – 2029”.


We maintain our network of over 700 community groups through the Fingal Community County Register. We have a fully searchable online database.

Policy Hub

The policy hub aims to support and guide linkage groups and their reps in building their capacity in how they engage with their relevant committees and assist in impacting the decision making processes in Fingal.

Dear PPN Members

Due to staffing resources, the PPN will be operating at a substantially reduced capacity. The PPN is currently without a Resource Worker and Support Worker.

A recruitment process is underway for the Resource Worker and Fingal PPN is currently working with Fingal County Council to address this issue. In the meantime, some areas will be operationally impacted, i.e., no new PPN members will be able to be processed, no staffing support for PPN representatives and linkage Groups, and May’s scheduled plenary is not guaranteed to go ahead.

We are aiming to remedy the situation as soon as possible.

Kind regards,

PPN Secretariat

What is the Fingal Public Participation Network?

Fingal Public Participation Network (PPN) is a network of community, voluntary, social inclusion and environmental organisations, working to build a better county for the community of Fingal.

Fingal PPN has almost 600 members and includes community-based groups, organisations, associations, clubs, societies and charities. Our members are based across Fingal in places such as Blanchardstown, Swords, Balbriggan, Lusk, Rush, Malahide, Howth and more.

We work to empower the community to be represented in decision making processes that impact citizens through representation on Council committees, consultation processes, policy submissions and more.

As a PPN, we provide space for community groups to grow and develop through our training supports. We also act as an information hub, keeping the community informed of relevant local issues, news, events, resources and supports.
