Strategic Policy Committees (SPCs)

SPCs advise and assist the Council in its work. While it is the task of each SPC to assist the Council in the formulation and development of policy, the final policy decisions will rest ultimately with the full Council.

The SPC system is intended to give communities an opportunity for full involvement in the policy-making process from the early stages, when policy options are more fluid.

Strategic Policy Committees (SPCs), are made up of representatives from:

  • Waterford City & County Council (members and officials)
  • Community & Voluntary Sector
  • Environment Sector
  • Social Inclusion Sector
  • Agriculture Sector

There are 5 SPCs in Waterford City & County Council and the PPN have 3 representatives on each. They meet approx four times a year.

NB: In 2024, all Strategic Policy Committees (SPCs) were dissolved pre-local elections and will be re-convened post-election.
