Fingal County Council has under The Sustainable Swords Project, commenced a place-making strategy focused on the strategic regeneration and compact, sustainable development of Swords. The goal is to increase the resilience of the local economy and to provide for an enhanced, accessible, inclusive, child-friendly and healthy urban environment. A vibrant town for all. 


Following the completion of background surveys and the carrying out of a town centre health check to inform the Strategy a number of themes and projects have emerged which we now publish for your comments and observations.  


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and public health restrictions on gatherings at this time, we are not in a position to host a traditional, in-person public consultation event during this round of consultation. However, your feedback on the scheme is still very important to us and we would encourage you to take part in the process.  


An online webinar will take place on 12th October 2021. You can register to attend this event here: 


Plans and documents can be viewed at the online locations set out in the table below.
