"Planning for Real" Workshops - Report to be Published Soon

21 October 2019


The ICON "Our Streets" programme involves undertaking local led planning for the Sean McDermott Street, Railway Street, Rutland Street and Summerhill area, incorporating significant sites such as the Magdalene Laundry, Rutland Street School and the Lady of Lourdes Church.

We have delivered workshops using the Planning for Real Methodology, this methodology has been really successful in the NEIC in the past. Planning for Real uses simple models as a focus for people to put forward and prioritise ideas on how their area can be improved.

It is a highly visible, hands-on community development and empowerment tool, which people of all abilities and backgrounds find easy and enjoyable to engage in.
