A new version of their website is now online

The Kildare County Development Board is a body which was set up to bring together all
the main agencies and interests involved in the development of Kildare and to allow them
to co-operate in providing their services.

The first task of the Kildare County Development Board is to draw up a strategy for the
Economic, Social and Cultural Development of the County over the next 10 years.

The County Strategy will provide the framework for co-operation between these bodies

This website tracks the progress as the Strategy is drawn up.
