Strategic Local Development Plan for the Mizen Peninsula

 Mizen Community Partnership

A partnership aiming to secure development, investment and expansion in west Cork was launched on last Thursday, April 16th in the Mizen Head visitor centre.
The new Mizen Community Partnership also released the Integrated Strategic Local Development Plan for the Mizen Peninsula, and are calling on those concerned for the community’s future to attend.
Commissioned by the West Cork Development Partnership, the report identifies three areas — brand, food, and heritage — to develop across the three Mizen community councils: Goleen, Schull and Ballydehob. 
It is hoped the partnership will develop the Mizen Peninsula brand, encourage the expansion of local food producers, and prioritise the area’s historical heritage.
Mr Ian Dempsey, CEO West Cork Development Partnership  launched the initiative which was attended by members of the tourist industry, government agencies, local businesses and entrepreneurs.
“We are looking forward to this exciting event and hope that this initiative will have a great impact on the lives of the many people who call Mizen Peninsula their home and workplace,” said a Mizen Community Partnership spokesperson. Muintir na Tire to which all three Community Councils are affiliated wish the project well and our CDO Denis Kelly attended on our behalf.
