PLENARY – 21st March 2018

posted in: News | 0

Leitrim PPN Plenary takes place on Wednesday 21st March 2018 at 8:00 pm.

What is Plenary?

Plenary is simply the meeting of all members. The reason we meet twice a year is to direct the work of the PPN in the coming months. It’s another chance for you to have your say about what is affecting you in your community outside the linkage groups or other structures.


Secretariat planning for 2018The agenda for Plenary reflects that it is an opportunity to get feedback from the PPN on what’s been happening and what might be coming up as well as get your voice heard.

Feedback from you and your groups suggests that Planning Issues are a concern to many. We are delighted to have expert speaker, Mr Ian Pudney to address the Plenary on that topic. Ian is a founding architect in Rhatigan Architects, Sligo. This company designed the recently built Primary Heath Care Centre in Ballinamore and they are experienced in private, commercial and community projects across county Leitrim and further afield. He will outline some of the issues that arise in planning and can take some questions – so be ready.
