NEW NATIONAL HERITAGE PLAN – ‘HAVE YOUR SAY’
deadline for submissions has been extended to 31st March 2019
A public consultation on the development of a new national heritage plan – Heritage Ireland 2030 – has been launched and the people of Clare are being invited to have their say. The draft discussion document is available here: Heritage 2030 Brochure
The plan seeks to recognise the vital role heritage plays in our community, our economy and our society and the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht is inviting the public’s views to help shape the priorities for Ireland’s heritage for the next 10 years.
Congella McGuire, Heritage Officer with Clare County Council, said: “It is important that the voices of individuals, groups and communities in Clare are heard through this process. Heritage 2030 offers an opportunity to build on some of the achievements and partnerships developed through the County Clare Heritage Plans in recent years, to promote heritage as a resource to contribute to quality of life, cultural and economic development of County Clare.’’
In order to facilitate the Heritage 2030 process, Clare PPN and Heritage Office held an open public consultation session at the Clare PPN Offices, Tuesday 26th February. In order to make it easy for people to have their views heard Clare PPN is preparing a joint submission based on this meeting and on written submissions we have also received.
