Louth LCDC

​​The Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) was established as part of the Local Government Reform Act, 2014 and commenced in Louth County Council in April 2014.

The committee is a statutory committee, and has statutory functions with regard to the preparation and adoption of the ‘Community’ element of the Local Economic Community Plan (LECP).

​Louth Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) was selected as the Local Action Group (LAG) for County Louth and will have the ultimate responsibility for the delivery, implementation and financials for the LEADER Programme in County Louth.

​Along with the LEADER Programme, the Louth LCDC also has a significant oversight role with regard to the Social Inclusion Community Activation Programme (SICAP) in County Louth.

"Our vision for County Louth seeks to deliver through the planning process, in partnership with the community and other stakeholders, a prosperous and thriving county where no individual or social group is excluded from the benefits of development. It also enshrines the principle of environmental, economic and social sustainability including protection of the county’s resources, heritage and the natural and built environment".
