South Dublin County Council is working to strengthen traditional villages through improvements to the public realm and enhancement of green infrastructure and sustainable transport links. We believe these villages are the bedrock of our county and we want to make local areas more liveable, sustainable, and attractive for residents, businesses, and visitors alike.

In 2021 the Templeogue Village Renewal Scheme commenced on site. Works include upgraded cycleways, pedestrian facilities, off-street carparking, EV charging infrastructure, surface water attenuation, and tree pits. A pedestrian link will be provided from the village centre to Riverside Cottages to the Dodder Greenway.

A key objective is to improve the green credentials of the district centres and will include increased planting, provision of green spaces, water refill stations, recycling facilities, EV charging points and improvements to street furniture to promote cycling and walking.
