MyTown MyPlan – Project kick-off

MyTown MyPlan – Project kick-off

02 September, 2019

The Hincks Centre’s newest project My Town, My Plan will deliver a community training programme in Carrigaline, Clonakilty, Cobh, Kinsale, Midleton, Rosscarbery, Skibbereen and Youghal over the next eight months.


The Vision for the programme is to positively impact on the innovative development of a cohesive town plan for the future.

The objective of this exciting new programme is to provide an innovative approach to support future planning and development of community resources in towns and their hinterlands. Training workshops will be used to provide information, stimulate discussions, link resources and develop ideas for each of the areas in conjunction with the community.

At a personal level the programme is designed to positively impact on knowledge, leadership, management and teamwork skills.

At a community level the programme is designed to positively impact on the community’s competence and capability to inform themselves, evaluate options and make collaborative decisions. This will enable them to create viable and sustainable community/social enterprises and develop an appropriate Town Plan for the future, with a clear sense of how the plan is supported with the appropriate legal structure and governance.
