The Community Survey Report is here!

We are happy to share the report from our Community Survey, which ran from the end of November 2023 to January 2024 on our online engagement platform, and collected feedback from 300 participants. It aimed to understand what’s most important to our community, helping us shape the future of the Docklands. The demographic of respondents showcased a wide age range and reflected a mix of professional, residential, and transient interactions among the respondents. You can find the whole report here.


In gauging the community’s priorities, the data reveals a strong emphasis on the 🌳 Environment, with 33% considering it the most important theme. The well-being of 👨‍👧 People closely follows, with 26% highlighting its significance. 🏃🏻‍♀️ Living conditions rank at 19%, indicating a notable consideration for the community’s day-to-day experience.  🚴🏿‍♀️ Mobility is identified as most important by 17%, reflecting the importance placed on accessible and efficient transportation.


In the 🌳 Environment theme top concerns are 💨 Air quality and 🌿Greening. In the 👨‍👧 People & Living, 🏫 Community facilities and social infrastructure and 🚸 Safety emerge as key issues. In 🚴🏿‍♀️ the Mobility section, 🚌 Better public transport links,🚶‍♂️Walkability and🚦Reduced congestion are seen as most important.


Popular smart technologies like the 🌉 Samuel Beckett Bridge lights and 🚲 Dublin Bikes highlight your appreciation for tech solutions that enhance city life. You’d like to see more innovations like 💨 air quality monitoring, 📹 CCTV for safety, and 🎧 noise monitoring. There are also some insights about the Docklands as a place to live in, work in and visit and you tend to highlight Docklands’ walkability, community and accessibility among others.

The survey findings will also be used as the basis for an upcoming Call for Pilots where Dublin City Council through its Smart City programme will fund a number of innovative solutions that can address the identified challenges. Based on the feedback we will look for pilots in the four key areas: 🌳Environmental monitoring, 🌿 Urban greening/Biodiversity, 🏫 Community development and 🚸Antisocial behaviour/Safety.
