Lusk For Life

A project aiming to give the people of Lusk a say on the future of their historic and rapidly expanding town was launched earlier this week.

‘Lusk Vision 2030: Lusk for Life’ is being championed by Lusk Community Council with the support of Fingal Leader Partnership.

Launched by Minister of State Joe O’Brien with a video outlining the goals of the project, it aims to engage wide participation from all local residents.

‘Lusk Vision 2030’ is a new type of town Action Plan, unique to Lusk, it will develop holistic, long‐term strategies for the future development of the town to help ensure the town thrives for all its citizens.

‘Lusk Vision 2030’ is led by consultants AP+E Architects with Miriam Delaney and Tara Kennedy.

They have designed a public participation programme open to all, in line with Covid-19 guidelines, and they will want to hear your views through a series of public participation workshops and surveys.

The Community Council wishes to encourage the people of Lusk to get involved and play an active role in creating the future vision for the area. This will involve completing an on‐line survey, taking part in a virtual workshops or getting in touch directly with the consultants to have your voice heard.

An open day of on-line meetings will be held in late February and will be advertised locally.

This will be the first time that Lusk has had the opportunity to create a “community first” voice and vision for the town.

Minister O’Brien said: “Your opinion in important. If you want Lusk to be, as I do, a vibrant, dynamic and sustainable town, this is your opportunity to help create that future.”
