Cork County Council Launches Public Consultation for Local Economic and Community Plan

Cork County Council has launched a public consultation period for the first phase of its Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP). The LECP is an important plan which will guide the promotion and support of the county’s economy and community over the next six years.

The first phase of the review process for the LECP has now been completed. On foot of this review, the Draft Socio-Economic Statement and High-Level Goals document have been developed, forming a strategic framework for the LECP.  This document will be available for review and public consultation from May 15th to June 26th.

Commenting on the launch of the public consultation, Mayor of the County of Cork, Cllr. Danny Collins said, “I would like to encourage those living and working in Cork County to have their say on how we promote and support the development of our communities and economy over the next 6 years. If you would like to promote your area or to develop a project for your community, this is your chance to help guide the direction of this plan. It is an excellent opportunity to share your thoughts and help shape the future of our county.”

To ensure that the people of Cork County have a say in shaping the vision of the plan, Cork County Council will hold three in-person events together with a virtual consultation room.  The LECP will be available at www.corkcoco.ie and copies will also be available in each of Cork County Council’s library branches.
