Shillington Parish Plan

A Parish Plan is an opportunity for the whole community to voice their opinion on what action they wish to see taken in their local area in the future.

It provides an opportunity to look forward for the next 5 - 10 years rather than just responding to tasks that need immediate action and provides a collective view of what people in the parish want, giving a stronger voice for the community.

It provides evidence of need and commitment, which may be used to influence local authorities, service providers and funders. It can test or encourage community backing for a project that has already been identified

It involves and includes everyone in the parish, it maps out services and facilities already in the community and it discovers what issues and opportunities people feel need addressing.

This information is then used to form an action plan to look at how the issues can be tackled.
