INTRODUCTION

This document is a result of a local based Community Plan to study the cause of the degeneration of Dorset Street and its environs and to identify solutions to reverse the decline and rejuvenate the area. A process was conducted to formulate a strategy, with participation from community residents, business owners, local stakeholders and the local authority. Following a series of discussions the conclusions were collected into a draft plan produced to facilitate further consultation and development. On 24th October 2018, an exhibition was held at 54-55 Upper Dorset St to present the draft Community Plan and encourage further participation with the wider community. The Pop-Up Shop ran for two months and was visited by over 700 people. Opinions and ideas were collected and considered. The Dorset Street Together Project should become a catalyst to define a future framework plan officially supported by our government.

how we were DORSET STREET 19TH CENTURY

Following the Act of Union on 1801, Dublin City's decline began and with it the departure of the landed aristoracy. The once elegant Georgian homes were converted to tenament lodgings for the poor; no more notable than the northside of the city. Serviced by the Canal in the early part of the century and the train subsequently Dorset Street continued as an important trading route. 1876 saw the arrival of the tram, ensuring its role as a primary transport corridor in the Victorian era. Much of the Dorset Street we see today is from this period.

Extract From John Jocques ‘A Plan Of The City Of Dublin And Its Environs’ 1756

1

The emergence of Dublin as the capital of a new free state in the 1920s, saw the need for social housing projects to alleviate the crammed conditions in the tenament dwellings prolific in the area. The dismantling of historic structures and the displacement of communities began. The developments coincided with the establishment of Catholic led institutions in health and education in the area. The removal of the tram in favour of the bus and car in the late 50s copperfastened the role of Dorset Street as a thoroughfare. The decline of the street as a vibrant shopping district continued to this day.

Following the Act of Union on 1801, Dublin City’s decline began and with it the departure of the landed aristoracy. The once elegant Georgian homes were converted to tenament lodgings for the poor; no more notable than the northside of the city.

It strategically passed through newly acquired land holdings by the Gardiner dynasty in the early part of the 18th century. A family of developers, starting with Luke Gardiner, they transformed much of the 17th century pastoral lands of the area to the grandeur of 18th century Georgian Dublin over the course of the century during unprecedented ecomomic growth in Dublin. Some buildings from this era remain.

Serviced by the Canal in the early part of the century and the train subsequently Dorset Street continued as an important trading route.

The construction of the Royal Canal commenced at the end of the century. The 2nd lock, Binns Lock, sits at the intersection of the canal with the street which brought passengers and goods to the city, before being replaced by the train.

Through the 19th and early 20th centuries, Dorset Street evolved from primarily residential to a commercial area. By the 1920s, its ecomomic importance was evident from the number of drapers, shoemakers, specialist clothing stores, furniture stores and grocers at the time. While never a primary shopping street like that of Henry Street or Grafton Street, it nonetheless served as a shopping district that served the emerging THOMAS SHERIDAN northern suburbs of Drumcondra and Glasnevin, whilst retaining an air of being a specialist son destination for all Dubliners.

........TOO MANY TAKEAWAYS........TOO MANY TAKEAW 2.3

Proliferation Of Food Takeaways On Dorset Street While the occupation of the buildings is positive, the type of use can have negative consequences. When there is an over dependence on one use, this further compounds the decline. Closed Shutters During The Day Night-time use results in an inhospitable street during the day, when the activities cease. Most shop fronts have external metal shutters, which create a bleak facade when not in use, and create the appearance of dereliction and vacancy. Anti-Social Behaviour An inevitable effect of a strip-like street creates a hostile and unsafe place for residents and visitors by attracting late hour revellers, and making it an unwelcome place and night.

Empty commercial units in a city centre location, and in particular when the city is experiencing strong economic growth, means there is an inherent problem with the area, which needs to be recognised and identified.

6.1.1 About Our Pop-Up Shop

Dubhlinn (The North City Business & Cultural Community) in partnership with the local Dorset Street Residents Community launched a POP-UP SHOP on 54-55 Upper Dorset Street on Wednesday 24th October. Attended by local residents, politicians and business owners, the POPUP opening helped in gauging public reaction while providing an opportunity for local residents to propose their own thoughts and opinions. The shop was open for two months and it is estimated that an excess of seven hundred people passed through the exhibition. Many of the POP-UP shop visitors provided written feedback on the exhibition’s feedback board which encouraged visitors to voice their opinions and ideas which will be taken on board to further inform the design and development of the area.

‘I am a disabled person...Nowhere to sit down on Dorset Street. Can you put some benches or something like that for people who have a disability. Thank You’

-Less social housing -Accommodation for people who work in Dublin city centre -Restaurants and not just take away-

‘Binns Bridge where Dorset Street crosses the canal should be the beutiful entry to the city but has not been upgraded with the rest of Dorset Street. Needs planning and lighting. This is a fine bridge and a seriously wasted asset. ‘

‘Forget about parking spaces. Provide a cycleway into town on one side o the street.
