Mayo Public Participation Network

The Mayo Public Participation Network is the main link through which the local authority connects with the community, voluntary and environmental sectors.

Mayo PPN aims to enable community organisations to articulate a diverse range of views and interests within the local government system, and to allow a diversity of voices and interests to be facilitated and involved in the decision-making process of Mayo County Council and other relevant bodies.


Mayo Public Participation Network (Mayo PPN) in collaboration with The Climate Action Office in Mayo County Council highlight the work of community groups around Mayo to help keep our planet Green. The Spotlight is on seven Mayo PPN Community Groups and how they have addressed climate change and biodiversity in their communities.

It gives examples on how Community Groups can make Mayo a leader in tackling Climate Change and biodiversity.

A series of short videos were released daily over the week 10th –16th March 2021.  These showcase community groups working together to address coastal erosion, biodiversity loss, food waste, energy reduction, transport emissions and other climate and biodiversity issues.

Community Issues

To fully represent its members, it is important for the PPN to be aware of emerging issues facing the Mayo Community.

Please take this opportunity to let us know the issues that you feel are of collective community concern in the county. These issues will then be considered by the PPN Resource Worker and re-directed to the most appropriate decision making body through our PPN Representatives Network.

What you tell us will help inform future planning and policy development and will allow us to work with neighbouring counties to build up a bigger picture of the community and voluntary sector in the North West.
