• A Repair Café is a simple concept which brings together local volunteers who have the skills to repair broken household objects. You can bring along broken lamps, bikes, chairs, jewellery, stereos and other household objects and get them repaired, free of charge.
    These cafés are supported by Dublin City Council and the Environmental Protection Agency.
    The next repair café will be held on Sunday 7th Dec from 1pm to 4pm in the Parish Hall of St John the Baptist Church, Seafield Road West, Clontarf.

  • Dublin City Council has begun preparing the new City Development Plan 2016 – 2022. It will set out a shared vision and direction for the future development of our city.

    To inform this process, Dublin City Council have put together an Issues Paper, which highlights some of the 'big picture' priority issues for the city over the next six years.

    We are encouraging citizens, communities and organisations to read through these issues and make observations.  



  • Street Performers Bye-Laws
    Dublin is famous for its music and busking tradition and with this in mind Dublin City Council have drafted bye-laws to regulate busking in Dublin City to help make street performing a more positive experience for everyone.
    In recent years complaints around Street Performing to the City Council, An Garda Síochána and the various business representative organisations have increased significantly.  The complaints mainly relate to loud continuous noise, obstruction of premises, busking taking place late at night disturbing city residents and intimidation by some performers soliciting donations, so the bye-laws are being put in place to help improve this situation.

    Flood Protection
    As a property owner, taking measures to protect your property from flooding will limit the distress and damage caused by flooding. However, finding the right flood protection products can be difficult.
