Community First's Community Development work supports communities to undertake community led plans, such as parish plans, to help them identify the needs and aspirations of local residents and to help them develop community led solutions.

A community led plan such as a Parish Plan lays out a shared vision for a community over about five years and contain a detailed action plan. It is a document produced by the community for the community and covers all issues of concern to local people including social, economic and environmental issues.

A community led plan gives everyone a chance to have a say about the issues affecting the community and suggest actions they would like to see taken in the future. The plan is based on the results of research and consultation using a variety of consultation methods that involve the whole community.

It identifies issues and concerns, but also those things to protect and enhance that are most valued by the community. The action plan shows the priorities of local people and detailed actions proposed to address these priorities.

The plan, when completed, highlights actions that can be taken by the community in partnership with the parish or town council, it can be used to influence service providers such as the Local Authority, and act as evidence of need when applying for funding.
