WPPN Looking for

Community Group Submissions

to Municipal Districts



Dear PPN Member


We have just completed the formal process of making and receiving feedback to issues raised by community and voluntary groups in Westmeath to the two municipals, of Athlone/Moate Municipal District and Mullingar/Kinnegad Municipal District.  Both Mullingar/Kinnegad and Athlone/Moate Public Participation Network submissions were positively received and many of the issues and proposals in the documents were supported and have either been implemented or will be implemented before the end of the year. See www.westmeathppn.ie (Resources) for copies of 2019 submission for 2020 budgets reports.

With the 2020 process complete, we need to prepare for the forthcoming Municipal District budget allocations for 2021.  We are hoping to kick this off by asking you to consult with your group and asking them to prioritise their issue of concern for their area or group and to also propose a solution to the identified issue.

We have attached a sheet which you can complete and return to us by email or post.  Please give as much detailed information on the issue at hand as possible.

The submissions received will be compiled and will be used as the draft submissions to the relevant Municipal District. Closing date for receipt of submission by WPPN is Monday 28th Sept 2020.

Please return your submissions to Westmeath Public Participation Network at below address or info@westmeathppn.ie by Monday 28th Sept 2020

If you have any questions or clarifications, please contact Brigid at 044 9332157 or by email info@westmeathppn.ie

Submissions form attached
