Strategic Policy Committees
Each SPC is chaired by an elected councillor and will be supported by a director of service. The task of the SPC is to assist and advise the council in the formulation, development and review of policy. The SPCs will not be concerned with individual representational or operational issues. Final policy decisions, however, will ultimately rest with the full council acting as a body. There are currently four SPCs in Clare County Council.
Strategic Policy Committees were established in line with revised guidelines published by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government. Strategic Policy Committees assist and advise the council in the formulation, development and review of policies. A new SPC Scheme for the Strategic Policy 2019 - 2024 was drafted in line with these guidelines, and was adopted at the September 2019 Council Meeting.
