The Glenelly Action Plan Committee has been in existence since 2013 and is focused on the delivery of the Glenelly Action Plan. This action plan was designed to assist with the promotion of businesses operating across rural towns and villages within the Glenelly areas including Plumbridge and Donemana.
The Committee meets bi-monthly and has delivered on a number of key priorities including improving the internal and external image of the area, supporting community and developing community pride via promotional events. Support has been provided to businesses by signposting them to a range of funded programmes including Inspire, Profit through Procurement and Fastrack to Finance. Activity has also included Funding Roadshows with a range of service providers including Invest NI, Inter-trade Ireland and Strabane Enterprise Agency. This Council committee has enabled Council to lobby for investment in rural areas e.g. improvements to rural broadband and mobile phone coverage.
