Monitoring the Big Plan

Members of Ards and North Down’s Strategic Community Planning Partnership are collectively responsible for the implementation and monitoring of the Big Plan.

Since December 2018 a Performance Update Report is signed off by the Strategic Partnership. This report outlines progress made against agreed headline actions. Copies of the reports can be downloaded below.

In accordance with legislation and guidance, as set out by the Department for Communities, a Statement of Progress must be published every two years, focusing on the outcomes of the Big Plan. Ards and North Down’s first Statement of Progress was signed off by the Strategic Partnership in June 2019. A copy of the technical version of the Statement of Progress can be downloaded below.
