The Voice of Docklands Business
The Docklands Business Forum is the representative body for Dockland businesses. The DBF have
made presentations on behalf of Dockland businesses to Oireachtas Committees, Dublin City
Council, Bord Pleanála, Fáilte Ireland, the Local Enterprise Office, Government Departments and
Ministers. We have written policy papers and responses on all the key issues facing the area.
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.
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 any concerns.
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.
