Impact of Local Government Reform on Community Groups

6th January 2014

CWF On the 27th November 2013, I attended a very informative talk on the Impact of Local Government Reform for County Wicklow Communities and Volunteer Groups.

The talk provided an update on the impending local government reform process and the implications this might have for community and voluntary groups in County Wicklow. The reforms, which arise from the publication by Minister Hogan of the Putting People First action programme in 2012 and the Local Government Bill 2013 have been described as the most significant reform of local government in the history of the State.

A report on the seminar has been published by County Wicklow Community Forum and can be found here WCF_Alignment Seminar Report

Further updates on the local government reform process in County Wicklow, and specifically its impact on the community and voluntary sector will be posted on and the Wicklow Community Forum Facebook page as information becomes available.
