Invitation to participate in a workshop on how YOU can work to ensure that the new Local Economic Plans are Truly Sustainable
An Invitation to all PPN Members and Resource Workers to participate in an important workshop.
“Ensuring that the new Local Economic and Community Plans (LECPs) are Truly Sustainable”
As the review of the first 6 year LECP comes to an end, processes are already underway to create the new 6 year plan for 2022-2027. Steering Groups have been set up in most Local Authority areas and these will oversee the development and implementation of the plans. LECPs are intended to support sustainable development at local authority level. In so doing, for better or worse, they guide the expenditure of very large sums of money. They should also form the local element of the national development framework and support collaboration to increase the quality of life in our communities. This has never been more important as we look to support a sustainable recovery from the impact of the pandemic and prepare for the growing impacts of Climate Change.
However the quality of the plans and the sustainability of the outcomes will depend on the quality of engagement with their development and implementation.
It is hoped that this workshop will initiate greater understanding of the importance of these plans, and a greater local engagement with them.
