One of the initiatives to come out of the Central Prospects work, carried out in 2003/04, was to develop Community Plans for local communities.
Community planning is about the local community determining its future. Emphasis has been placed on the community views, on its local points of difference and getting opportunities that will ensure the community remains an attractive and desirable place in which to live, work and play.
The aim is to create a collective community vision and develop a number of key recommendations to assist in creating a sustainable community. This then provides an important insight on the direction the community would like to head and informs many of the organisations involved in the local area. Having a community plan group which oversee the community plan and drive the recommendations in the plan is critical to its success.
The following areas now have community plans: (To view these plans click on the link)
