Building Peaceful and Thriving Communities

The ‘Building Peaceful and Thriving Communities’ Plan will be centred around three core themes.

  • Local Community Regeneration and Transformation
  • Thriving and Peaceful Communities
  • Building Respect for all Cultural Identities.

A PEACEPLUS Partnership has been established for the Newry Mourne and Down District Council area to develop priority actions for the local area and collectively address these in a manner which will make a significant and lasting contribution to peace and reconciliation.

This Partnership consists of 25 members made up of nine Newry, Mourne and Down District Councillors, five Statutory Representatives and eleven Social Partners.

The plan, informed by inclusive engagement with the local community, will enable and empower the PEACEPLUS partnership to self-determine and deliver priority projects and programmes on a cross community basis. It is hoped this will result in improved, shared and inclusive local services, facilities and spaces which will make a significant and lasting contribution to peace and reconciliation.

If you are a resident of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, a community or voluntary organisation, or you are interested in peace and reconciliation, we will be offering you the opportunity to contribute to our PEACEPLUS local community action plan soon. 

Engagement opportunities will be advertised in all local papers and communicated via our social media channels. Alternatively, if you would like to receive email notification of the engagement opportunities, please contact the PEACEPLUS team on peace@nmandd.org.
