Planning for the future of LEADER in Co. Meath is now underway!

With a project budget of €4.05 million for County Meath, Meath Partnership, on behalf of the Meath Local Community Development Committee, has begun the process of creating the LEADER Local Development Strategy (LDS) 2023-2027 which will set the roadmap for LEADER investment over the next 5 years.

As part of this process Meath Partnership will be seeking to engage with as many individuals, community organisations and enterprises as possible to give voice to your views on how LEADER funding should be invested and to enable your wishes to be captured within the Strategy.

Engagement now will ensure that the Local Development Strategy for Co. Meath is as inclusive and representative of the hopes, aspirations and wishes of the citizens of Co. Meath as possible.

The consulation process will take a number of approaches including: 

    • Open Public Consulations
    • Local Area Consultations
    • Stakeholder Meetings
    • One-to-One Clinics
    • Focus Groups
    • Survey Feedback
    • Thematic Workshops covering: Farm Diversification, Food & Craft, Rural Environment, Rural Enterprise, Rural Toursim, Social Enterprise and Rural Youth
