5 Year Development Plan Launched
COMHARCHUMANN OILEÁN ÁRAINN MHÓIR TEO LAUNCHES 5 YEAR STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR ARRANMORE ISLAND
Comharchumann Oileán Árainn Mhóir Teo presented its five-year strategic development plan for Arranmore Island on Friday 12th September 2008. The plan was launched by Liam Ó Cuinneagáin, Chairman, Údarás na Gaeltachta in the Arranmore Enterprise Centre at 1:15pm.
The island development plan, which was compiled by planning and development consultants Canavan Associates Ltd., aims to tackle some of the issues highlighted in the earlier socio-economic survey of the island community in 2006. This new plan updates the 1994 – 1999 island development plan, also prepared by Canavan Associates, from which many worthwhile community initiatives on the island got their start. The plan was generously supported by Údarás na Gaeltachta.
The 2008 plan looks at changes on the island since the last development plan, what has been achieved, the challenges facing the island, and opportunities for future development. Delivering the Plan effectively will require a partnership approach among members of the island community, An Comharchumann and supporting agencies. It is essential that all these partners share the plan's vision and communicate with one another to achieve the actions set out.
