Why have a Community Plan?
A Community Plan is an opportunity for your community to have a say in how your local area and services are managed. It can made a real difference, both to what you do within your community and to how you work with others to improve local quality of life.
Bath & North East Somerset Council supports Community Planning and has produced a toolkit to assist communities in developing their plans. The toolkit is available to download from the related information on the right hand side of this page.
