What is a Community Led Plan?
- A plan to improve Acomb, focusing on what is important to the people living and working in Acomb Parish – (there was consultation with established groups, a Parish wide questionnaire to all households in 2014 resulting in a 56% response rate. All this information you provided was analysed and was the foundation for the CLP and what you valued and what you wanted to happen).
- It provides a working document to influence local and national decision making across various organisations e.g. Parish Council,County Council, Environment Agency – ( on going links made with partner organisations, as has been demonstrated in the work relating to Acomb’s Flood Plan have made things happen).
- It is a tool by which A4A can apply for funding to improve facilities and services – (successful grant applications are already making a difference, LEAF Grant to support the Citizen Science Project; Community Chest to support the development of A4A’s website and the printing of the parish wide questionnaire; Action for All Lottery funding to support the Youth Club and holiday activities; Parish Council Grant to support the process of the Community Plan, and much more).
