What is the Fingal Public Participation Network (FPPN)?

Fingal Public Participation Network (formally known as Fingal Community Network) is the local Public Participation Network and therefore is Fingal's new framework for public engagement. It will provide the structure to facilitate the two way flow of information between the Local Authority and Community, Voluntary and Environmental groups. The network will enable residents of Fingal and community organisations to influence plans and policies for the future development of the County.
