Clare PPN welcomes new LCDC representatives
At the end of June, we put out a notice of election for vacant positions on the Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) of Clare County Council. The LCDC comprises Council officials, elected Councillors and various business and community representatives. Among other things, the LCDC has the job of developing and overseeing the community elements of the six-year Local Economic and Community Plan.
We were thrilled with the nominations we got from social inclusion groups and environmental groups across the county and we are delighted to announce the following successful candidates.
Cornelia Wahli of Clare Environmental Network has been elected to the LCDC to represent the Environmental college of Clare PPN. Cornelia has a background in education and permaculture design. On the LCDC, she would like to be a voice for the natural world, a healthy and nurturing environment capable of feeding and supporting humans as well as fauna and flora, with sustainable development a core value.

Dermot Hayes of Clare Leader Forum has been elected to the LCDC to represent the Social Inclusion college of Clare PPN.
