Council invites submissions on PEACE IV Action Plan

 

People in Donegal are being asked for their views that will inform both the development and roll out of the Peace IV Action Plan within the County. The overall priority of the Peace IV Programme is to promote social and economic stability by actions that promote cohesion between communities in Northern Ireland and the Border Region. 

 

Building on the successes of the previous Peace Programmes, Peace IV will tackle the remaining challenges that exist in building positive relationships and developing shared spaces by tackling real and complex issues, such as racism and sectarianism.   

 

The Peace IV Programme will be delivered through a partnership arrangement operating at local level under the auspices of the Local Community Development Committee.   There will be a strong emphasis on promoting cross community relations and understanding with a focus on Children & Young People, Shared Spaces & Services and Building Positive Relations. In this regard there is a requirement to prepare a County Action Plan that will address the relevant issues in County Donegal in preventing the benefits of a united and shared community from being realised. This will provide the basis upon which funding will be secured for actions under the PEACE IV Programme.

 

Paddy Doherty, Partnership Secretary welcomed the start of the consultation.

 

“This is an opportunity for everyone to have their say on how the PEACE IV Action Plan should be developed, and how the funding should be spent over the next four years. The previous Peace Programmes assisted projects throughout Donegal and all communities benefited considerably from the funding available”.

 

“Peace IV has the potential to build upon this achievement, particularly if its priorities and actions are fully informed by public consultation. That is why it is vital that everyone with an opinion should participate in the consultation”.

 

Donegal County Council will carry out the public consultation, on behalf of the PEACE IV Partnership week beginning 27th June 2016. Everyone with an interest in the new programme is being encouraged to participate and make their views known.
