Local Community Development Committee Support

Local authorities help Local Community Development Committees to create an integrated approach to community development by coordinating access to funding, developing and delivering projects, and promoting community engagement.

Local Community Development Committees (LCDC)


The Local Government Act 2014 provides that each Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) will be established as a committee of the Local Authority. The Tipperary LCDC was established in 2014. The LCDC comprises of representatives who are members of the Local Authority, other state agencies, community and voluntary sector and social partners. The balance of representation between the sectors is intended to be balanced in favour of the non-statutory sector. The LCDC is independent of the Local Authority in the discharge of its functions.

Co. Tipperary Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP) 2015 - 2020

The single six year Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP) includes two elements – a community element and an economic element. The LCDC is responsible for the development of the community element of the Local Economic & Community Plan (LECP). Tipperary County Council Economic Development and Enterprise Strategic Policy Committee (SPC) has responsibility for the economic element of the LECP.
