Getting Started

A TOOLKIT FOR COMMUNITY LED PLANNING  

ACRE’s national toolkit provides step by step guidance on how to go about developing a Parish or Community Led Plan. Published in February 2012, the Toolkit shows communities how to use the new Localism rights to make their plan more effective. 

You can find out more about what the Toolkit has to offer and download the first few sections for FREE from ACRE’s website:
http://www.acre.org.uk/our-work/community-led-planning/Resources/Community+Led+Planning+Toolkit 

Full copies of the toolkit are available, along with additional advice and support, from Community First.

These next steps are crucial to creating a high quality plan that will be used and valued by all so it is essential that you seek further guidance from Community First at this stage.
