Dublin City Public Participation Network (PPN)

Printer-friendly version

Dublin City Council has established the Dublin City Public Participation Network (PPN), with a Secretariat elected at the Plenary Meeting on the 20th May 2015.  The objective of the PPN is to promote an active formal role for groups with policy making and oversight committees within Dublin City Council and to disseminate information to members.

Linkage Groups

Linkage groups are special interest groups open to all PPN members.  The groups are formed to provide a link between the PPN representatives on committees and the groups they represent. Linkage groups are designed to ensure that representatives represent the entire PPN and not just their own groups.

Register with Dublin City PPN

The Dublin City PPN provides groups and organisations who register:

  • Opportunities to influence decision and policy making by electing representatives to Dublin City Council committees
  • Information on funding, grants and initiatives of interest
  • Training opportunities
  • Networking opportunities to meet other groups.

Who can register?

All local, voluntary and ‘not for profit’ groups and organisations can register with the PPN.

The Secretariat is the administrative group set up to run the PPN. It works on a voluntary basis. It calls Plenary meetings and supports the plenary.  The Secretariat oversees elections to different Local Government committees.

The new and 3rd PPN Secretariat were elected in December 2018.  Many thanks to the outgoing secretariat who played a great part in getting the Dublin City PPN up and running over the last year.
