Launch of Causeway Coast and Glens Community Plan 2017 - 2030

15th June 2017

The first Community Plan for the Causeway Coast and Glens has been officially launched – marking an important milestone in the ongoing development of the region.

‘A Better Future Together – A Community Plan for Causeway Coast and Glens 2017-30’ was unveiled at an event at the Causeway Hotel.

Community Planning is one of the new responsibilities of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council and its statutory partners, representing the whole range of public services available across the area including health, education, public safety, housing, our communities, the environment and the economy.

Keen to provide an opportunity for all citizens to ‘Have a Say’ in planning for the future, the Causeway Coast and Glens Community Planning Strategic Partnership has been actively engaging with a wide range of communities, groups and individual citizens over recent months. The process helped to develop a long term vision and plan for the Causeway Coast and Glens area and all its citizens which sets out aspirations for a Healthy Safe Community, a Sustainable Accessible Environment and a Thriving Economy.

Causeway Coast and Glens Easy Read Community Plan

CAN (Compass Advocacy Network) is a unique, user-led organisation of people with learning disabilities, based in Ballymoney. Their aim is to promote empowerment and advocacy for young people and adults with learning disabilities through local service provision of activities and work opportunities.

As part of ongoing Community Planning engagement activities, the Community Planning Team hosted some lively and informative participative events with young people and adults from CAN and other local organisations.  They told us about their ideas on delivery of local public services including their wishes to have an Easy Read version of the new Community Plan.

Council’s Community Planning Team wish to thank all those involved in the CAN Easy Read Transcription Team who worked with us to produce our Easy Read Community Plan.

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?

If you would like to find out more about Community Planning in Causeway Coast and Glens please visit www.causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk/council/community-planning

Responses to this consultation can be made in writing to:

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.

Cloonavin, 66 Portstewart Road, Coleraine, BT52 1EY

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.
