The County Council, specifically the Heritage Officer has a coordinating role in developing and implementing the Fingal Heritage Plan. However, Fingal Heritage Plan is a cross-sectoral plan incorporating strategic objectives and actions to be implemented by many groups, agencies and organisations involved in the care, protection and management of heritage in Fingal. The implementation of the plan will only be achieved in partnership with all stakeholders. If you would like to get involved in any aspects of the plan implementation, please contact the Fingal Heritage Officer, Christine Baker at [email protected]

Fingal Heritage Draft Consultation

The Draft Heritage Plan 2024-2030 was formulated to reflect the views of the public and stakeholders expressed during Stage 1 of the consultation process. The Draft Plan set out a vision and strategic objectives for our shared heritage. It includes all types of heritage, how they interlink and connect and how we can best protect and access our heritage. Submissions and observations were invited via the consultation portal or in writing.

Timed to take advantage of the rise in public awareness for heritage, following Heritage Week 2023 the consultation period for the Draft Plan extended from Wednesday 23 August to Wednesday 04 October 2023 (inclusive). The consultation process was promoted extensively via the Fingal Communications Unit, the website and through social media. A live online webinar with the Heritage Officer took place on Tuesday 26th September, which was recorded and could be viewed, subsequently. A total of 10 submissions were received. A report on the submissions and amended Draft Plan was presented to the Fingal Heritage Forum, and subsequently brought to Council, where it was approved on the 11th December 2023.
