THE NOTION OF PAYS

The Pays is a territory with an economic, cultural, social or geographical cohesion. It groups a number of local authorities to work out a concerted development strategy, and more effectively organize the services people expect and the equipment they use.

A pays is characterized by :

  • a territory
  • the gathering of elected councillors and civil society players
  • a project
  • a contract
  • programmes of action with multiple public and private project owners
  • engineering, coordination and events promotion missions
  • the mobilization of multidisciplinary human resources
THE MISSIONS OF THE PAYS LOIRE VAL D’AUBOIS
Created in 1986, the Pays Loire Val d’Aubois has a long inter-municipal experience which has taken on a new dimension from the mid-1990s, when the Pays set out to elaborate a real, sustainable and local development policy.

Indeed, in 1997, the Pays Loire Val d’Aubois drew up its Development charter. This comprehensive document, updated in 2003, includes a report no. 1 reviewing and assessing the current situation in the territory, and a report no. 2 setting out the strategic directions to be implemented in the coming 10 years.
THE FUNCTIONING OF THE PAYS LOIRE VAL D’AUBOIS

  • The technical team comprised of a territorial development professional and a secretary concerned with financial affairs.
  • The council for development, an emanation from the local civil society, responsible for strengthening the partnership between local councillors and socio-professional groups and associations.
