​​​​​​6.11 Local Economic and Community Plan

The Local Economic and Community Plan 2016-2021 (LECP) is an integrated statutory plan that is reviewed and adopted by the Council every 6 years. The County Development Plan informs the content of the LECP, and the content of the LECP must be consistent with the Development Plan. In this regard, both plans are interdependent in setting out the strategic vision for the economic growth of the County, accompanied by supporting policies and objectives to be employed in securing this vision.

The purpose of the LECP is therefore to identify objectives and implement actions to strengthen and develop both the economic and community dimensions of the County over a six-year period.  The objective of the County Kilkenny LECP is to further the promotion of economic development, and the promotion of local and community development.

The Development Plan and the Local Economic and Community Plan effectively operate along parallel and supportive lines. The LECP provides a supporting framework for economic and local community development, whereas the County Development Plan provides an overarching strategy and statutory policy support for the proper planning and sustainable development of the County at a spatial level.

The current LECP contains numerous actions to enhance economic and community development. A new LECP will be commenced in 2021.


6L        To continue to promote and facilitate the delivery of the objectives and actions set out in the Kilkenny Local Economic and Community Plan 2016-2021 (or any subsequent replacement).
