Shire Community Plan

What is a Community Plan?

  • Identifies local problems & opportunities
  • Sets out an achievable and long term vision for the future
  • Prepares a plan of action to achieve this vision
The views of all of the community will be gathered through a comprehensive survey & community participation/consultation events. The plan involves looking at all aspects of living and/or working in a community and usually has sections on community safety, heath, traffic and transport, community facilities/buildings, housing & planning, parks and green spaces, employment and enterprise etc. It can include everything we think is relevant in Shire and we can decide what's important to us!
Who’s doing it? This is a partnership project led by local residents, Shire Community Action Forum (SCAF) and Cotswold Community Association.
