Kilcock Community Consultations begin Tuesday September 27th

Kilcock Community Consultations begin Tuesday September 27th Posted on September 16, 2011

The Integrated Services Programme (ISP) for Kilcock is starting to take shape.  The ISP which brings together the different sectors operating in Kilcock, such as business, community and public services to draw up and implement an action plan for the town has commissioned a study on local area needs which is currently under way. Running alongside the research piece, a series of community consultations has been scheduled so that the entire Kilcock community can have a say and be part of shaping the future development of Kilcock town.

For the ISP to be successful, it is vital that members of the community ensure that their voice is heard and the resultant action plan captures and represents their needs.

The first Community Consultation meeting will take place on Tuesday 27th September in Scoil Choca Naofa at 7.30 pm.  Everybody is welcome to attend and be part of the process.

Residents associations, community organisations, business representatives, sports organisations, youth organisations, senior citizens groups, community service providers and individuals are encouraged to come along and find out how the Kilcock Integrated Services Programme will operate and feed into how it will best serve the community of Kilcock.

Isobel Fletcher from Elevate Project Management & Consultancy will facilitate the consultation process over the coming weeks and Honor Griffin, ISP Coordinator for North Kildare will outline the benefits and outcomes that the ISP can bring to Kilcock.

The Integrated Services programme for Co Kildare is a project of the Kildare County Development Board (CDB) Strategic plan 2020.  It was launched in Kildare in 2010 and Kilcock is the first town in North Kildare where the ISP will be delivered.

The  ISP works by identifying gaps in local needs, commissioning projects that are achievable, scoping the requirements and responding through interagency working to deliver project goals. 

For further information on the Kilcock ISP programme, please contact Honor Griffin at 087 7828928 or email honor@countykildarelp.ie for more information.
