Causeway Coast and Glens Draft Community Plan

‘A Better Future Together’

Consultation Opportunity

6th February 2017

To all

For the past nine months we have been engaging and consulting with you about some of the issues in Causeway Coast and Glens that you feel a Community Plan should address. Thank you for your help with this.

We have taken all your feedback, plus statistical evidence and expert opinion and used it to develop a draft Community Plan for the Causeway Coast and Glens area.

The draft Causeway Coast and Glens Community Plan – ‘A Better Future Together’ can be accessed by selecting https://www.causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk/uploads/general/Draft_CP_January_2017_V2.pdf

The draft Plan sets out our aspirations for the year 2030. It is an ambitious plan and takes a holistic approach to what we want to try and achieve. The plan is centred on three population outcomes, eleven high-level outcomes supported by a range of intermediate outcomes alongside the indicators that will show us if we are making progress. It focuses on the results or outcomes we want to achieve for the Causeway Coast and Glens area. The next stage in the Community Planning process will involve the development of a ‘Delivery Plan’ that will focus on what needs to be done, by whom and how.

Before we finalise and publish the Community Plan we want to undertake another short consultation exercise. This consultation exercise seeks to gather some feedback on whether the document explains what each outcome means.  Is it clear what issues and problems the Community Plan will actually try to address? Have we selected the correct indicators to monitor the impact of the Community Plan?

About This Survey

While this survey is based on a number of specific questions there is a section at the end for you to feedback on any aspect of the Community Plan that you feel the structure of the survey does not allow for. Please read and complete the Survey in conjunction with the Causeway Coast and Glens Draft Community Plan.

The Community Planning Team seeks to gather feedback on whether the outcomes and their selection are clear, it is obvious what issues each outcome is trying to resolve and whether people think the indicators selected are the correct ones.

Community Planning Poster Competition- Winners Announced

Thu, November 10, 2016

A pupil from St. Patrick’s Primary School in Glenariff has been selected as the winner in a recent art competition organized by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council’s Community Planning team.

Eleanor Fyfe’s winning design earned her a £30 voucher while her school received a £300 cheque.

Runner-up prizes were awarded to Robyn Baird from Rasharkin Primary School in 2nd place and Amelie Holden, Hezlett Primary School, Castlerock in 3rd place.

Keen to provide an opportunity for all citizens to ‘Have a Say’ in planning for the future, the Community Planning team has been actively engaging with a wide range of communities, groups and individuals over recent months.

The aim of the competition was to encourage Primary School children to think about their area and where they live.

It linked into work already carried out in the Primary sector around Personal Development and Mutual Understanding, particularly Learning to Live as Members of the Community.

Councillor George Duddy, Community Planning and Strategic Partnership Chair at Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, welcomed prizewinners, their parents and teachers to the Mayor’s Parlour in  Cloonavin, this week.

He said: “I loved the designs on display. These projects encourage children to think positively about where they live and promote their understanding of how they can contribute to the world around them. I was very pleased to present the children with their prizes and I really look forward to seeing their designs put to use.”

Community Planning is one of the new responsibilities of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council and its statutory partners which include the Education Authority and the Council for Catholic Maintained Schools (CCMS).

The process aims to develop a long term vision and plan for the Causeway Coast and Glens area and all its citizens based on a thorough analysis of its needs.
