DLR expands on its public engagement platforms with launch of dlrBETA project, sourcing ideas from the public to trial small scale improvements
Launched today by An Cathaoirleach, Cllr Una Power, and Leas-Cathaoirleach Cllr Séafra Ó’Faoláin, the dlrBETA project is a new departure in public engagement for Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. Modelled on Dublin City Council’s successful BETA project, the dlrBETA project aims to engage with the public and to assess submissions from the public on ideas that you have for small scale improvements to the public realm.
A dedicated new website – www.dlrbeta.ie – will act as a platform for sourcing good ideas from the public and seeing if dlr can turn them into small-scale test projects.
The focus will be on very small-scale projects and we will be prioritising which ideas will be trialled in one specific location. The trials will be monitored and assessed for effectiveness. The nature of the project is that these will be very much trial interventions, being tested in the field, for a period of 3 – 6 months. The Council will then consider if the trial projects are in any way feasible for developing out on a wider basis over time. Read More.
