Community Led Plans

September 30, 2015 • Rural Innovation

Community Led Plans

RDP funding enabled the social enterprise team to produce eight community plans, working within the community and a steering group.  The team worked with over twenty village community groups and helped them to prioritise what was required within the village, whether it be upgrading community facilities such as play areas and village halls, speeding traffic and any other issues that local people felt was important to their quality of life. 

Support was given to identify funding opportunities and any new funding steams that become available.

Open meetings were held in villages and surveys were conducted and evaluated. 

Villages that completed their plans were:

Llandogo; Llangybi; Raglan; Coed-y-Paen; Sudbrook; The Narth; St Arvans; Llanover and Officers also did initial Community Consultations with Penallt; Llantilio Crossenny; Caerwent; Mathern; and Shirenewton

Working with MCC Countryside Wardens, consultations were held for user groups of Warren Slade, Park Reddings in Chepstow and Castle Meadows Abergavenny, with the results being used by the Countryside Officers to write Management Plans for their sites.

Some of the issues raised by the community and are being addressed by the residents:

  • Community oil buying scheme
  • Village defibrillators
  • Street light curfew
  • Speeding Traffic issues
  • Community energy scheme
  • Community communication
  • Footpath management
