A meeting of the County Development Board took place on Friday last, 11th March in the Council Chambers, County Buildings.  The Board considered the following matters:-


  • Review of CDB Structures and Operations based on the findings of the review of Kerry CDB carried out by Mr. Seán O’Riordáin.
  • Guidelines on the operation of the Executive Committee.
  • Presentation from Mr. James Conway, Department of Agriculture on the Harvest 2020 Agriculture Strategy.
  • Presentation from County Manager on operation of KEAT.
  • Presentation from Ms. Fiona Buckley of Fáilte Ireland on tourism challenges.


Discussion groups formed part of the meeting where groups considered the Boards previous priorities and, in light of the present economic cycle, whether these priorities needed to be updated particularly in the areas of:-


  • Economic Activity
  • Agriculture and Aquaculture, and
  • Tourism


Following animated discussion on these topics, it was agreed to summarise the detail and for the Executive Committee to consider how the Board may action the new priorities.
