Local Economic & Community Plan

Fingal Economic and Community Plan (LECP)

320 x 240 The Local Government Reform Act 2014 provides a stronger and clearer role for local government in economic development and community development which is key element in achieving the vision set out in the Action Programme for Effective Local Government: "that local government will be the main vehicle of governance and public service at local level, leading economic, social and community development".

The purpose of the LECP, as provided for in the Local Government Reform Act 2014, is to set out, for a six-year period, the objectives and actions needed to promote and support the economic development and the local and community development of the relevant local authority area, both by itself directly and in partnership with other economic and community development stakeholders.

Fingal Local Economic Community Plan 2016 - 2021 was adopted by the Elected Members on December, 14th 2015.

A shared but separate process

The Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP) was prepared by the Local Authority and the Local Community Development Committee (LCDC). The economic element of the plan was developed by the Local Authority and the community element was prepared by the LCDC. Both elements have been integrated into a Local Economic and Community Plan which was adopted by Fingal County Council at Full Council Meeting in December 2015.
