Further to our recent item on WHATS HAPPENING WITH LEADER 2014-2020 IN COUNTY CORK 

We have been sent an update on  the current position on North Cork Leader 

The North Cork Local Development Strategy has been submitted.  
The North LEADER LAG (comprising a partnership between the North Cork LCDC and the three Local Development Companies operating in the area i.e Avondhu Blackwater Partnership ltd, IRD Duhallow ltd and Ballyhoura Development ltd),  submitted the North Cork Local Development Strategy in mid-October.  

Public consultation meetings and other information events were held in throughout North Cork during the Summer/Autumn which afforded communities the opportunity to contribute to the Strategy’s local objectives and priorities.  
The Strategy is now being assessed by the Evaluation Committee and it is envisaged that funding will be made available as soon as possible after the decision of the Committee, which is hoped will be in March 2016.  

The North Cork LEADER LAG will be in contact with community groups as soon as more information becomes available.
