Strategic Policy Committees (SPCs) bring together elected members (councillors), and people actively working with social, economic, cultural and environmental bodies to develop and review policies related to council services. SPCs prepare the groundwork for policies which are then decided on by the Local Authority.
Draft Strategic Policy Scheme
Strategic Policy Committees are being established in order to bring the knowledge and expertise of people working with social, economic, cultural and environmental bodies throughout the County into the operations and strategies of Wexford County Council.
These committees will work alongside the Elected Representatives in contributing to and developing Council policy in a spirit of partnership.
To facilitate this, 5 Strategic Policy Committees are being established. The areas of activity which it is proposed will be covered by these committees include:
- Housing & Community SPC
- Transportation & Water Services SPC
- Economic Development & Enterprise SPC
- Planning & Building Control SPC
- Environment & Climate Change SPC
Membership of the SPCs will comprise of local elected members and representatives of the following sectors. (where appropriate)
- Trade Union
- Social Inclusion
A scheme to enable the setting up of the Committees is now available in draft form here:
and at Wexford County Council Offices, Carricklawn, Wexford, for any interested groups and organisations who may wish to make submissions about the scheme.
The closing date for submissions on the draft scheme is Friday 23 August 2019
