My name is Joseph Corr, I am a corporate member of the Public Relations Institute of Ireland and the Irish Planning Institute. I am the proprietor of my own consultancy, Corr & Associates.
I am a former County Councillor (2004 - 2009) and was Mayor of Fingal between June 2006 and June 2007. I am not a member of any political party and so do not promote the policy of any one party in particular. I do want to see that the correct policies are in place and that they reflect the needs of the communities they are formulated to serve.
I have a strong interest in sustainable development and empowering communities to participate in decisions that impact on their areas through collaborative and comprehensive planning. I am a husband and father, which also drives my interest in all things relating to sustainable development.
My blog is my opinion, observations and thoughts on matters related to how we might make things a bit better to support a decent quality of life for our citizens. I don’t believe I have all the answers but I want to play my part in encouraging people to participate in their community.
