Community Planning Guidance: A response from Sustainable NI

Community Planning is a major new responsibility for councils. The Local Government Act (2015) charges them with leading a process, together with partner organisations, to identify long-term objectives for improving the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of their districts. It is intended that the community plan will contribute to the achievement of sustainable development in Northern Ireland. The department published draft statutory guidance for the operation of community planning. This is our response to that consultation document.
