Castlepollard Local Development

Castlepollard Local Development is the recognised “Local Action Group” for Castlepollard.

The origin of the group stems from the stakeholder consultation process to create a 5 year "Local Action Plan" for the town, since adopted by Westmeath County Council. The group was formally established in 2018 with help from Westmeath Community Development, adopting a Constitution at that time.   

Castlepollard has had town committees in the past, most notably The Town Improvement Committee, The Town Development Association, and - most recently - the Muintir na Tire (inspired) Town Council.    

We hope that Castlepollard Local Development can harness their spirit and build on their achievements.   

As a group, we’ll focus on four main headings, which are: 

1. Business and commercial
2. Services and amenities
3. Culture, heritage and tourism
4. Sustainability
