TU Dublin Environment & Planning launch #IrelandsBestPlace competition

8 Nov, 2019

TU Dublin Environment & Planning want to know where #IrelandsBestPlace is. So they are running a week-long competition on social media. Simply tweet @TUDublinEnvPlan (with an image if you can) where you think #IrelandsBestPlace is, thinking especially of great examples of town planning.

Friday 8th November is World Town Planning Day and TU Dublin Environment & Planning have held a week-long series of events for “Planning Week”, a programme of activities by the Irish Planning Institute (IPI) whose purpose is to promote and encourage sustainable development and good planning in Ireland.  Find out more about the IPI Planning Week, including a useful set of planning resources, at www.planningweek.com

The #IrelandsBestPlace competition was launched by IPI President, Joseph Corr, at an event held for Planning Week 2019 at TU Dublin Bolton Street on 7th November.  Minister of State, Damien English T.D., gave an excellent keynote address on “Implementing Project Ireland 2040”.

The best #IrelandsBestPlace tweet (decided by the TU Dublin Environment & Planning lecturing team) will win a pair of books by Eoin O’Broin T.D. and Frank McDonald, former Environmental Editor of the Irish Times, both recent speakers at the @TUDublinEnvPlan #planningweek2019

The winning tweet will be announced on @TUDublinEnvPlan on Friday 14th November.
