Shaping the future together

This is your opportunity to help write our first 

COMMUNITY PLAN for Staveley with Ings.


This is your opportunity to help write our first 
COMMUNITY PLAN for Staveley with Ings.
Why write a Community Plan?
There are many fantastic things about Staveley with Ings but there are many challenges. We need to act together if we are to sustain what is good about the community and to make it even better.
A Community Plan belongs to a community. That means we can all be involved in writing it and putting it into action.
It will build on earlier plans, and provide us with a framework of aspirations, principles and values for the next ten years as well as specific actions for the next year or two.
Where are we up to?
In 2019 we invited everyone to be involved in The Conversation and to complete an on-line Survey. A small working party used these to identify Five Strategic Areas for the plan –
Nature and the Environment
Staveley with Ings Society
Our Local Economy
Our Community Services and Facilities
Planning and Making Decisions
Late last year we asked you to suggest actions that you can take as individuals, groups and businesses by completing the contribution sheet – on-line or on paper.
We have had many responses and are now taking a look at them and shaping them into a draft plan. You can find the contributions (anonymised) we’ve received so far here as well as a summary of the contributions about the community here.
What happens now?
You can still make a contribution to the plan through Survey Monkey. We want as many good and creative ideas as possible and you can log on to send more ideas even if you’ve already filled it out once. 
What happens next?
If you would like to volunteer to join one of the five ‘Strategic Area’ working groups, to sift through specific ideas, prioritise them and help shape the draft plan please email or volunteer during the meeting. 
When The Staveley with Ings Community Plan is published everyone will be able to see what people plan to do across the community.
The Parish Council will invite all members of the community to contribute to an annual review of the action plan so that we can celebrate the progress we have made and agree what needs to be done next.
