Framework Policy for Local and Community Development in Ireland (2015)
Our Communities: A Framework Policy for Local and Community Development (2015) was approved by Government on 15 December 2015.
The Framework Policy will be implemented on a cross-government basis and will seek to secure a joined-up, collaborative and participative approach to local and community development at local level. The development and implementation of policies, programmes and other interventions will be carried out by central and local government in line with the Framework Policy’s five core objectives.
The Inter-Departmental Group on Local Government and Local Development will oversee and monitor the implementation of the Framework Policy, developing an implementation plan to advance the measures associated with each of the five core objectives.
