Dear Community Member,

Your views are VERY IMPORTANT. What would you like for Dunmore East over the next five years? What is your vision for the village, the harbour area, and the surrounding areas?

Now is your chance to have your say. Waterford Institute of Technology in collaboration with Dunmore East Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG) received a grant from the EU to undertake this plan. This short survey is about your area and how we might improve life for you and your family. It is being circulated to all households in Dunmore East and these results will inform our five year plan (One survey to be completed on behalf of each household).

All responses will be treated in strict confidence and consultants have been contracted to prepare this report. We look forward to hearing your views and a summary of the results will be displayed as part of an information event at a later date. These ideas will then be used as the basis for our plan for Dunmore East.
