Local Economic & Community Plan 2016-2021

Kilkenny County Council and the Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) for Kilkenny have prepared a Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP) for the county which was launched in 2015.

The plan was developed to ensure that “Kilkenny is a great place to live, work and play; offering its citizens dignity, security and the capacity to participate to their maximum potential”

The LECP provides a road map for the development of our county to 2021. One of the main objectives of the LECP is to ensure the effective co-ordination of publicly funded programmes. As a statutory plan, the LECP will provide a blueprint for local and community development funding invested in County Kilkenny over the lifespan of the plan. This includes programmes such as the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme, or SICAP, and the LEADER rural development programme.
