Community Plans

A community plan:

  • identifies local problems and opportunities
  • sets out an achievable and long term vision for the future
  • prepares a plan of action to achieve this vision

To prepare a plan the views of all of the community must be gathered through survey, research and community participation. A plan can include everything that is relevant to the people who live and work in the community, from employment needs to playgrounds. They can include any social, environmental or economic issues. It is up to the community to decide what is important to them. No one else can set the agenda or determine priorities for action on behalf of the community.
