Clare Smart Community
Plans x10

Worked with 10 communities in County Clare to co-create a Smart Community Action Plan.


Public Service


eTownz Training & Facilitation Programs


The aim of the project was to undertake a community led audit of 10 communities across Co.Clare over a 12 month period. In partnership with each community we prepared bespoke plans to identify the needs of the community, particularly the needs of the vulnerable within that community, whose voice is sometimes not heard. The program included a range of training workshops, focus groups, mentoring, surveys and audits of businesses; community groups and residents; and sought to incorporate existing plans, such as the county development plan, into the end product. The project covered a wide range of community development themes under the core pillars of social, economic, cultural and environmental.

I work with Clare Local Development company which is an organisation that supports communities and community organisations in county Clare. We’ve been working with eTownz for over four years where they have assisted in the development of community plans for a number of towns in our area. We found their approach to be innovative, professional and personable. We would recommend eTownz and look forward to seeing the development of their services in the years to come.”
