Giving your business and your employees a voice.
The Docklands Business Forum is the voice and representative body for Dockland businesses. We
have membership on a wide number of stakeholder committees including the Docklands Oversight
and Consultative Forum appointed by the Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government,
Dublin City Council’s Joint Policing Committee, City Audit Committee and Finance Strategic Policy
Committee and Fáile Ireland’s Dublin Tourism Working Group.
The DBF have also made presentations on behalf of Docklands businesses to Oireachtas Committees
at Leinster House and Bord Pleanála oral hearings at the Bords Head Office in Abbey Street.
We have several initiatives to ensure we keep in touch with how our members and their employees
feel about the business environment in Docklands. We have three Docklands Network Events during
the year affording members an opportunity to raise concerns about anti-social behaviour, planning,
transport or any other matter and our representatives are on hand to listen.
The DBF often carry out surveys of our members and of local employees. Recently we carried out
our #DocklandsSays Survey of over 1,000 local employees both online and hard copy on a number of
locations throughout Docklands including Mayor Square and Grand Canal Square at lunch times.
