As of the 1st June 2014, The eight Regional Authorities in Ireland have been dissolved and are now incorporated into the Regional Assembly structures. The former South West Regional Region which consists of the administrative areas of County Kerry, County Cork and Cork City is now part of the Southern & Eastern Regional Assembly area until new regional structures are established on 1st January 2015.
The main functions of the Southern and Eastern Regional Assembly are to:
• prepare and oversee the implementation of Regional Planning Guidelines;
• monitor the delivery of the National Development Plan & EU Structural Fund assistance in the Mid-West region;
• promote the co-ordination of public service provision in the region.
