What We Do
CCC's new committee has been working diligently throughout the 2020 and 2021 to enact a strong Governance foundation for the charity.
All charities are now required to meet the comprehensive, new Governance Laws set out by the Charities Regulator. Behind the scenes, our team have worked diligently to ensure CCC's compliance with the Charty Regulator's Governance Code. In the public realm we've also been working on local environmental projects, community development, community health and safety, and we've been communicating with local stakeholders to provide opportunities for the people, environment, culture and economy in Courtown to thrive throughout the coming years.

Courtown Community Council (Registered Charity No. 20043414) has been diligently working over the past 6 months with individuals, local groups and national organisations to enhance and improve the collective communities of Courtown, Riverchapel and the surrounding areas. The last six months have been witness to many successes with the completion of our New Coastal Pathway, Harbour Telescope, and Smart Village training. However, there have also been a myriad of challenges. It has been a real struggle for clear communication and transparency with our local authorities. Our concerns have been fed back through formal complaints which are available below. CCC has made huge strides by achieving compliance with The Charity Regulators Governance Code and is working tirelessly on a Community-driven Smart Village Strategic Plan which is supported by expert consultation from Wexford Local Development (WLD) and Prescience EU, in line with Local, National and EU Strategic Plans. We want to ensure that the views of residents and visitors of our community are heard and respected. In line with Governance Code, as a Registered Charity, all of CCC's Trustees serve as volunteers, and make no personal gain from any CCC activities. The members of CCC also represent and collaborate with a variety of other local stakeholder groups including: Seal Rescue Ireland, Irish Coast Guard, Riverchapel Community Complex, and local schools.
