Guidance to district councils on the development of local cultural strategies

Department of Communities,
01 January 2001, Northern Ireland

In Northern Ireland the District Councils have a statutory authority under the Recreation and Youth Service Order to provide for sport and leisure. They also have important regulatory and development powers that can enable action plans to be developed and delivered. In addition, the Best Value initiative has an overarching aim of promoting the cultural well-being of an area.
