About the REUSING DUBLIN

Reusing Dublin was initially created and developed by Aoife Corcoran and Philip Crowe. Their research project, Reusing Dublin, was part of a wider EU FP7 funded project called TURAS (Transitioning towards Urban Resilience and Sustainability).

The website provided a valuable resource to map and track vacant and derelict sites. It brought attention to an issue largely ignored in public discussions on housing and land use.

In 2016, as the research project drew to a close, Peter McVerry Trust engaged with Aoife and Philip with a view to using their resource and concept to create a campaign platform. The campaign will concentrate on the need to increase housing supply and availability as well as improve land and property management systems. Ultimately, it is hoped that the campaign will result in a number of positive social impacts as well as delivering an improved urban environment.

The new phase of Reusing Dublin operated by Peter McVerry Trust will seek to increase public and political awareness of the issues and provide access to news and information related to vacancy and dereliction in Dublin.
