Community Led Plans

We support communities who wish to undertake a Community Led or Parish Plan.

Community planning helps people to explore their needs, set priorities and plan actions.

Information on how to produce a plan is available in the community led planning guidance sheets.

After beginning to prepare a plan you should make contact with our Community Engagement Officer Emma Nichols.
