Including Yellow Flag in LECP plans
On the 24th of March 2015 the Yellow Flag team made a presentation to the Housing Social and Community Committee of the City and County Managers Association. On their advice the Yellow Flag team has written to the Chief Executive of each local authority across the country informing them of the Yellow Flag. We have also looked to see if a commitment to roll out the Yellow Flag Programme could be included in the 6 year Local Economic and Community Plans (LECP) that are being developed by each local authority. The Yellow Flag Team would value local groups support in securing this commitment to roll out the Yellow Flag Programme in your counties Local Economic and Community Plan (LECP). Paula Madden (01 6796577) would welcome contact from groups to discuss how we could work together with our members around this.
