Strategic Policy Committees


The statutory basis for Strategic Policy Committee’s (SPC’s) is set out in the Local Government Act, 2001 (Section 48) as amended by Section 41 of the Local Government Reform Act 2014.

It is the task of the Strategic Policy Committees (SPCs), as committees of the council, to advise and assist the council in the formulation, development and review of policy.

Membership includes elected councillors, representatives of business, farming interests, environmental/conservation groups, trade unions and community and voluntary members.

A Draft of the Strategic Policy Committee Scheme will be put out for public consultation in the coming weeks. Further details of this will be announced shortly.
