At the Council meeting held on Monday, 14 November 2016, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council voted in favour of Sandyford Business District achieving Business Improvement District Status.

The key objective of the Sandyford Business Improvement District Scheme is to develop and implement a series of new and additional initiatives that are designed to both further promote and improve the Sandyford Business District area. The aim of the BID is to establish Sandyford Business District as a world class destination in which to work and reside, a vibrant community of businesses and residents with a unique identity, a place where living, working, shopping and spending leisure time is attractive, easy and positive.

The Sandyford Business Improvement District (SBiD) aims to develop a strong community among businesses and residents by creating a clear sense of identity and place. The SBiD will focus on a number of measures to achieve these objectives, to include branding, communication and promotion of the District; attracting business, both FDI and indigenous; focussing on smart technology, WiFi and other technological improvements; and providing cost savings and incentivisation for businesses and residents.

An Cathaoirleach of dlr, Cllr Cormac Devlin, said, “Sandyford Business District is thriving and is a good example of a sustainable community.  It is a very important economic centre for Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown in creating jobs for people living in the County.  I think the collaborative framework between Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown and Sandyford Business Improvement District will deliver great results for our County.”
