50 Great Ideas

The 50 Great Ideas Initiative

This program will see the various Sandyford Business District task forces addressing challenges and seizing opportunities, both large and small, that will make a positive impact for businesses and the community here in Sandyford.

Our ambition is to deliver 50 positive outcomes throughout the District. We’re well on our way but there’s plenty more to do!

See below for details of what has been accomplished to date with the help of our members, the local community and our partners in DLRCoCo.
