Kildare Public Participation Network (Kildare PPN)

Kildare Public Participation Network is a new framework for public engagement and participation.

The PPN will be the main link through which the local authority will connect with the community/ voluntary, social inclusion and environmental sectors.


There will be more extensive and diverse input into decision making at local government level in Kildare.

Through the PPN, people will be selected to participate in various processes of the County and its boards & committees. 

The PPN will be organised at County and Municipal District levels. 

The Municipal District PPN will be made up of community/voluntary, social inclusion and environmental organisations within that particular district.

PPNs are being set up in each county under Section 46 of the Local Government Reform Act 2014.

The Kildare PPN is being established under the direction of an interim steering group comprising representatives from Kildare Community & Voluntary Forum and with support of Kildare County Council.
