About Community Planning

In Ards and North Down different organisations are involved in providing local services. Community planning joins up the efforts of these organisations and makes sure they work with local people to improve all aspects of community life. Community planning will help public agencies work together, with the wider community, to plan and deliver better services.

Community Plan

The Community Plan will be a fifteen-year outcomes based strategy and will consider a diverse range of issues including:

  • education
  • employment
  • health
  • housing
  • transport
  • tourism
  • outdoor spaces
