Kildare Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) was established in May 2014 under the Local Government Act 2014. There are 19 members on Kildare LCDC representing Statutory and Non-Statutory organisations. Kildare County Council is responsible for establishing and supporting the operation of the LCDC.
The role of Kildare LCDC is to bring together local authority members and officials, state agencies, representatives from local, community, economic, cultural and environmental development to develop, co-ordinate and implement an integrated approach to local and community development.
Kildare LCDC carries out its work by preparing the community element of the Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP). This plan informs the work of the LCDC who implement, or arrange for implementation of the community elements of the LECP. This involves oversight of a number of national programmes and initiatives.
