Strategic Policy Committees (SPCs) are local authority committees in city and county councils whose membership includes elected councillors, representatives of business, farming interests, environmental/conservation groups, trade unions and community and voluntary members.
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.
The remit of the SPCs is to deal only with policy matters and as such they are strategic in nature. They have no remit in relation to routine operational matters regarding the delivery of services.
The SPC system is intended to give Councillors and relevant Sectoral Interests an opportunity for full involvement in the policy making process from the early stages.
There are currently 6 Strategic Policy Committee’s in Tipperary namely:
1. Economic Development and Enterprise
3. Infrastructure (to include Roads, Transportation and Water Services)
4. Planning and Emergency Services
5. Environment and Climate Action
6. Community, Culture and Library Services
