How to get on to the Strategic Policy Committees

This brings us back to the advertisement in the local newspapers. Kildare County Council were:

"…inviting applications from interested groups or associations who have a county wide remit or who operate in a number of localities who wish to be considered for membership of the Strategic Policy Committees."

If you feel that you fulfil the requirements as outlined you can get an application form from the Council at the following address.

Application Forms are available from

The County Secretary,
Kildare County Council,

Tel No. 045-873800

If you are a small local community or voluntary group, and you want to become involved or need more information, contact Action South Kildare. We would hope to reflect and represent the concerns of community groups throughout the South County.
