The West Cork Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) – a Committee of Cork County Council – is confirmed as the new LEADER Local Action Group (LAG) for West Cork and the programme officially commenced on the 1st December 2016. The new group – branded “LEADER West Cork” – manages the allocation of just over € 5 million in LEADER funding across West Cork for the period 2016-2020.
In addition Cork County Council is providing a supplementary Community Development Initiative funding of €1.25m to support the programme which brings the total funding available to communities in West Cork to just over € 6.25 million. The LEADER programme is being rolled out by a consortium of the West Cork LAG and three local development companies operating in the West Cork Council division namely; Avondhu-Blackwater, SECAD and Comhar na nOileán.
The LEADER Programme supports local and community projects across a diverse range of themes including; Rural tourism, enterprise development, rural towns, access to broadband, basic services targeted at hard-to-reach communities, rural youth, protection and sustainable use of water resources, protection and improvement of local biodiversity, and development of renewable energy.
The programme is co-financed by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
