Public Participation Network

In 2013 the government set up ‘the working group on citizen engagement’ to examine the best way to get greater involvement of citizens in local government. They recommended the establishment of Public Participation Networks in each county.

Following this, the County Longford Public Participation Network (PPN) was established which is the main link through which Longford County Council and other decision-making bodies connect with the local community.

The mission statement of County Longford Public Participation Network is “To Promote the Wellbeing for Present and Future Generations and Inclusive Community Participation in The Economic, Social and Environmental Development of County Longford”
