Waterford Local Government Review


On 19th June 2015, the then Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Mr. Alan Kelly, TD. established the Waterford Boundary Committee under section 28 of the Local Government Act 1991.

The Committee was required to carry out a review of the boundary between the City and County of Waterford and County Kilkenny and to make recommendations with respect to that boundary and any consequential recommendations with respect to the area of the Metropolitan District of Waterford that it considers to be necessary in the interests of effective and convenient local government.
