Monaghan Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) continue to work on the new Local Economic & Community Plan. This document will dictate what issues are prioritised and how funding is spent in the county for the next five years, so it’s important that you have your say.
You can keep abreast of developments on their new website, www.monaghanlcdc.ie.
So far, the LCDC has agreed a Socio Economic Statement for the county, and from this identified six High Level Goals that they want to see advanced during the lifetime of the Plan.
One of these goals is ‘continue to support & strengthen community & voluntary activity and civic participation in the county’, and they have asked the PPN to consider how this might best be achieved.
You can have your say in two ways:
• By completing this very short survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RWX5VXQ
• By coming to a workshop on 6th October from 6pm to 9pm. We will be providing food to help things along, so you need to book your place so we know how many to cater for. Email Carol on firstname.lastname@example.org to book your spot
The LCDC has been running other workshops to help develop the actions under the other 5 High Level Goals. They will add the PPN’s input to these, then will formulate a Draft Action Plan. This will go out to public consultation in October.
We will be organising a big consultation event around the Draft Plan, so watch out for that in about a month’s time.
