The Mayo Public Participation Network(PPN) replaced the Mayo Community Forum in late 2014.

The Network provides a mechanism to facilitate and enable the public and the Community & Voluntary organisations to articulate a diverse range of views and interest within the Local Government system.

The aim of the Network is to encourage and enable public participation in local decision making, to actively support inclusion of socially excluded groups and to identify issues of collective concern and work to influence policy locally in relation to these.

The PPN will give the public more direct access to local government decision and policy making mechanisms.

 It will be the main link through which Mayo County Council connects with the community and voluntary, social inclusion and environmental sectors without prejudice to other consultation processes.


It is comprised of the more than 300 groups of various different interests throughout the county who have chosen to register with the network

Twice Yearly Plenary Meetings

All the registered groups can send a delegate to the plenaries to propose, debate and vote on issues that are of interest to them.

Keep informed via the network

The MPPN will use the web, forums, e-mail, newspapers and radio etc. to circulate current and upcoming developments
