Imagine Dundrum is pleased to report that Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council has been granted €4 million euros by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage, to advance the planning and design for the Dundrum Civic Centre.
In 2020, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, following a strong campaign by Imagine Dundrum for a new Civic Centre, with a modern library, civic offices, and multi-functional community/cultural spaces, applied to government for almost €30million in grant funding to enable the building of the Dundrum Civic Centre.
Imagine Dundrum had hoped that the full funding for the build would have been granted at this point, the €4million funding will be used to prepare an integrated design for the Civic Centre, and this will lay the foundation for progressing the Civic Centre.
There is a road ahead, however, which involves Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council in securing a suitable site at the heart of the Village and the funding to build the Civic Centre.
We thank all the local people who have supported the campaign and we invite you to keep up the momentum and the pressure.
