Corporate Plan is considered
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.
