Stakeholder Engagement


Stakeholder Engagement


Since we announced our plans for North Runway, we have met with a large number of community groups and individuals as part of our communications plan and ongoing engagement for this project.

We want to make sure that you are equipped with all the information you need about this significant piece of strategic infrastructure for Fingal and Ireland.

We are passionate about engaging in open, honest and genuine conversation with our neighbouring communities.  In this regard, we are happy to meet with any individuals or community groups who would like an in depth briefing and more information on the project.

Community Liaison Group

As stipulated under the current planning conditions, a Community Liaison Group (CLG) has been established with representation from St. Margaret’s, Fingal County Council and daa.

Public Consultation

In June and July 2016, members of the public and other relevant stakeholders were invited to participate in a consultation process relating to the scoping activity of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The EIS will support the application for the Proposed Change to Permitted Operations.

A second round of public consultation was held at the end of October 2016 where we provided further information on the EIS process and invited interested stakeholders to assist in the process of selecting between emerging options for future flight paths.

Dublin Airport Community Fund

As part of the North Runway project, we committed to establishing a formal Community Fund for local communities. Taking this commitment into consideration and building on decades of previous investment in local initiatives, the Dublin Airport Community Fund was launched in June 2017.

The Fund will invest €400,000 per year over the next 25 years in local projects focussed on areas such as; environment and sustainability, sports and recreation, social inclusion and community development, health and wellbeing, and culture and heritage. 

The new Community Fund will support local projects in the neighbouring communities around Dublin Airport from Santry south of the airport, to Rolestown in the north and from Tyrrelstown on the west, to Portmarnock on the east. 

Further information on how you can apply for funding is available here
