My Department has been in contact with the Irish Local Development Network (ILDN) and understands that the report referred to in the Question is still in draft format and has yet to be approved by its Executive Committee.  ILDN envisage that this process should be completed shortly and the report will then be submitted to my Department’s Alignment Working Group for consideration.
