The Community Plan is the document that will frame all public, private and voluntary sector activity in Pembrokeshire over the period 2010-2025. It describes the issues that are important to everyone in Pembrokeshire and identifies the approach that a range of organisations will adopt in attempting to tackle them.
The Community Plan has been prepared by the Community Planning and Leadership Partnership (CPLP). The CPLP is a group of public and community and voluntary sector representatives charged with preparing Pembrokeshire’s Community Plan.
Members of the CPLP are:
Countryside Council for Wales
Dyfed Powys Police Force
Welsh Assembly Government
Environment Agency Wales
Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service
Milford Haven Port Authority
Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority
Pembrokeshire County Council
Hywel Dda Health Board
Pembrokeshire Association of Local Councils
A Preliminary Policy Statement was issued in September 2009, providing an early indication of what was likely to be included in the Community Plan. This Statement was published on the Pembrokeshire County Council website, and was also the subject of consultation through a range of partnerships and networks. This work led to the publication of a draft Plan and, following a short period of consultation, the final version of the Plan has now been published.
The Pembrokeshire Community Plan will be signed off by Pembrokeshire County Council and submitted to the Welsh Assembly Government in May. However, whilst the publication of the Community Plan is significant, it is important to acknowledge that the true value of community planning lies in the dynamic nature of the process. We hope that the issues identified in the Plan will stimulate further discussion, and that we are able to enter into an ongoing dialogue with people in the community regarding the improvements they would like to see implemented.
It is important that you have your say on the Community Plan and we welcome your comments. We are particularly keen to learn what you, your organisation or community could do to contribute towards the achievement of the strategic objectives contained in the Plan.
Please take the time to read the Plan and get involved in helping to ensure that Pembrokeshire is prosperous and that it remains vibrant and special.
