County Kerry is now getting ready to set up the new structures required under the Local Government Reform Act 2014. We have been active with the Community and Voluntary Sector in making people aware of the changes about to take place. The county-wide 15 member Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) is being established at present and An Taisce has been offered a temporary position on it. Our function would be to represent the Environmental and Heritage Organisations in the county. We are, at present, arranging through the Community & Voluntary Forum to contact all the organisations in the county that come under this heading. Environmental Representatives will be needed on the Public Participation Networks for each of the four Municipal areas in the county from which other committees, such as Strategic Policy Committees will be filled.
