Dromore Place Plan-Taking Stock survey

Closed 30 Jun 2024

Opened 8 May 2024


The people of Dromore are invited to take stock of their town as part of an exciting place planning initiative that will look at how Dromore could be improved for its people. The Dromore Place Plan is being taken forward by Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Community Planning Partnership of which Council is the lead partner.

The plan is in the early development phase and we want to hear from people about;

  • What makes Dromore special to you
  • How do you interact with your town
  • What would help make the town a better place to live, work and study?

As the place planning process gets underway, there will be further consultation and engagement opportunities in Dromore which are outlined below.

This project is funded by Armagh City, Banbridge Craigavon Borough Council, and HLM Architects have appointed to develop the plan.

Why your views matter

We’d really appreciate if you could take some time out to complete to survey,  it is an opportunity for you to provide feedback into the early research, and to give the partnership a better understanding of your views on your town.

Please allow 15-20 minutes to complete
