Intro Text 
Councillors in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council recently adopted a new Corporate Plan for 2020-2024. The Plan was developed following extensive consultation in 2019 with the public, community groups, local citizen interest organisations, business groups, Council staff, Councillors and other stakeholders. The aim was to gather as wide a view as possible on what aspirations people had for their County. Following this consultation period, the Corporate Plan was drafted and developed, taking on board existing council plans, public consultation views and relevant legislation. The Plan is much more than just another Council document; it provides a strategic framework for the Councils vision for the County, it’s goals for the next five years and the core values which will guide the Councils work over the lifetime of the Plan. It is available to read here at or at any one of our local libraries.
The Vision for the County:
Creating a progressive and vibrant County that is attractive, inclusive and accessible for everyone
The following themes emerged as priorities over the course of the consultation period informing the specific Corporate Goals of the Council.
• Enriching quality of life through vibrant communities, housing and amenities
• A leader in environmental protection and climate action

The eight specific Corporate Goals that the Council has adopted are aimed at enhancing quality of life and maximising opportunity in the County and we will achieve these corporate goals by working and collaborating effectively in tandem with our vision for the County.
