Local Community Development Committe (LCDC)

What is the LCDC? The local community development committee was established “for the purposes of developing, coordinating and implementing a coherent and integrated approach to local and community development”.

Each LCDC will bring together people who work in:

  • Local authority (members and officials)
  • State agencies
  • Local development
  • Community development
  • Economic, cultural and environmental organisations
  • What does the LCDC do?

LCDCs will—

  • Co-ordinate, plan and oversee local and community development funding, whether spent by local authorities or on behalf of the State by other local development bodies.
  • Prepare the community elements of a 6-year Local Economic and Community Plan.
  • Bring a more joined-up approach to the implementation of local and community development programmes and interventions, pursuing an integrated approach to local community-based services across providers and delivery structures.
  • Drive meaningful citizen and community engagement in the scoping, planning, delivery and evaluation of local and community development programmes.
  • Pursue a more cost efficient administration of local and community development programmes and delivery structures, the matching of resources to priorities and better value-for-money in the management and delivery of programmes.
  • Focus on learning and feedback, enhancing the links between service delivery and policy development, and pursue opportunities for additional funding for the area, whether Exchequer or EU.
