Cor­po­rate Plan is con­sid­ered

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

COUN­CIL­LORS at Septem­ber’s county council meet­ing con­sid­ered the first draft of the council’s Cor­po­rate Plan for 2019-2024.

Mem­bers were told that the plan sets out the lo­cal au­thor­ity’s high-level goals for the next five years, tak­ing in to ac­count the work of the Mu­nic­i­pal Districts and is­sues such as dis­abil­ity rights, cli­mate change, hu­man rights and so­cial in­clu­sion. Coun­cil­lors were ad­vised by the council ad­min­is­tra­tor that the plan must be adopted six months be­fore the an­nual meet­ing, which gives a timescale up to early De­cem­ber.

It was in­tended that the draft­ing of the plan would move to the con­sul­ta­tion phase be­gin­ning with council staff dur­ing Septem­ber be­fore reach­ing out to other stake­hold­ers in Oc­to­ber. The com­pleted plan would be pre­sented to coun­cil­lors to con­sider dur­ing the Novem­ber or De­cem­ber meet­ing.

Frank Cur­ran, Wick­low County Council Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, said that the goals were di­vided into four ar­eas: hous­ing and com­mu­nity; eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment plan­ning and in­fras­truc­ture; or­gan­i­sa­tional de­vel­op­ment and fi­nan­cial mat­ters; and cli­mate change and bio­di­ver­sity. He said that sug­ges­tions from mem­bers would be fed into the an­nual ser­vice plan.

Cllr Irene Win­ters (FG), Cathaoir­leach Wick­low County Council, asked if the mem­bers were in agree­ment and the mo­tion was passed.
