Local Economic & Community Plan 2023-2028

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 2023.

The new Framework document sets out a vision for Kilkenny which is ‘by 2028 Kilkenny will be a future-ready, citizen-centric and welcoming county that is climate resilient, provides jobs, attracts highly productive businesses, delivers inclusive services and celebrates creativity’.

The ten high Level Goals which form the framework reflect the depth of its remit. The goals which are structured around the pillars of economic and community are cross cutting, responding to important synergies as well as the overarching commitment towards climate action.

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 2028.
