The Grangegorman Strategic Plan and subsequently the Planning Scheme committed the Agency to assisting in the setting up of a Community Liaison Committee (CLC) to help with the embedding of a new community of 22,000 TU Dublin students and staff with the existing community. The central aim of this committee was to ensure that the community had a voice and forum to discuss issues and to avert potential problems once the new quarter and especially the new campus was up and running. This committee deals with issues such as student accommodation, late night events, campus safety and general community and student interaction.
