Community and Integrated Development

LCDC


 Mayo Local Community Development Committee (LCDC)

The Mayo LCDC was established in 2014 under the local government reform process to develop, coordinate and implement an integrated approach to local and community development. The committee is made up of representatives from the County Council and local development companies, public bodies and representatives of social, economic, environmental and community interests. The LCDC is a sub-committee of the Mayo County Council but is independent in the discharge of its functions.

In 2016 the Mayo LCDC launched its six- year Local Economic and Community Plan 2015 to 2021 (LECP) which includes measures to tackle poverty and disadvantage, support enterprise, employment and training, develop community infrastructure and promote economic development. To view the Mayo LECP click HERE.

The LCDC is also responsible for planning and oversight of local and community development expenditure in the County for example the Healthy Ireland, Community Enhancement, LEADER and SICAP Programmes. These programmes are aligned strategically with the LECP. The minutes of the LCDC can be viewed here
