Top of the list for Louth County Council in their Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP) published today is that they will work with all communities to help them reach their full economic and social potential. 

The LECP, which is set to shape the development of County Louth over the coming years, was officially launched by members of the Louth Local Community Development Committee and members of the Louth Economic Strategic Policy Committee. 

“The launch of the six-year plan follows a comprehensive public consultation process and subsequent consultation with economic and community development stakeholders” said a Council spokesperson. 

“The plan aims to guide economic and community development in the county. It will shape the development of County Louth over the next number of years with the aim of making Louth a vibrant, sustainable, progressive, and climate-resilient county underpinned by inclusive, healthy, empowered communities and a dynamic economy. 

“The Louth LECP sets out the objectives and actions needed to promote and support the economic development and the local and community development of Louth, both by Louth County Council directly and in partnership with other economic and community development stakeholders.”

Five high- level goals were adopted as part of the plan, including:

  • Louth will work with all communities to help them reach their full economic and social potential.
  • Louth will continue to develop entrepreneurship and the economic opportunities afforded by the county’s strategic location
  • Louth will foster healthy, inclusive, diverse, creative and resilient neighbourhoods.
  • Louth will actively lead on increasing the county’s climate resilience, sustainability and biodiversity.
  • Louth will have engaged, empowered, dynamic, resourced and connected communities.
