The purpose of the Kildare Local Economic & Community Plan 2016-2021

The purpose of the Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP) 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 Kildare. These actions will be agreed and implemented both by Kildare County Council, directly and in partnership with other economic and community development stakeholders.

What has happened to date?

Early in 2015, the LCDC working with economic and community stakeholders identified twelve key social and economic goals with associated objectives and actions for Kildare, to be addressed over the lifetime of the plan Kildare LECP 2016-2021.  The LECP was agreed in December 2015 following extensive analysis, consultation and discussion throughout the year with key stakeholders.  Implementation of the plan is now commencing and progress will be monitored throughout the lifetime of the plan.  The twelve goals of Kildare LECP are as follows:

  • Population
  • Urban/Rural County in the Greater Dublin Area
  • Economic and Employment
  • Housing
  • Education
  • A commuting county
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Safe Communities
  • Children and young people
  • Community, Recreation, Arts & Culture
  • Environmental Quality
  • Economically Sustainable County
