Local Government is entering a period of unprecedented change with the creation of 11 new super councils to be established in Northern Ireland on 1 April 2015 as part of Local Government Reform (LGR).
As well as the mammoth task of harmonising existing functions during this transitional period, new Councils are required to prepare for the integration of a range of transferring functions; including elements of planning, off street parking, urban regeneration, community planning, economic development and local tourism
There are 3 of the new cluster councils currently involved in this project which account for 7 of the current legacy councils.
