Congratulations and a very warm welcome from everyone at  County Kildare LEADER Partnership to the new Co-Ordinator of Kildare PPN Grainne Fleming.

What is Kildare Public Participation Network?

Kildare PPN was established to allow communities within County Kildare to have greater involvement with the Local Authority and to give the community a greater voice and influence on issues and policies of interest to them.

Public Participation Networks (PPN’s) were set up following the enactment of the Local Government Act 2014 to act as an inclusive and independent structure that facilitates public consultation and public participation in policy and decision making.

The PPN provides the structure to facilitate the two way flow of information between the Local Authority and the Community and Voluntary, Social Inclusion and Environmental groups in County Kildare.  The PPN facilities this through electing PPN representatives to sit on various committees within Kildare Council to have their impact.
