Local Community Plans
Community Planning is a process led by Derry City & Strabane District Council in conjunction with partners and communities to develop and implement a shared, long-term vision to improve the social, economic and environmental well-being of the Derry City & Strabane District area. It will also guide how our public services will work together locally to plan and deliver better services.
Derry City & Strabane District Council adopted a significant co-design process to develop the Strategic Growth Plan for the Derry & Strabane District. This included engaging with statutory organisations, business, community and voluntary organisations and interested citizens to agree the way in which the plan should be developed.
There are 3 Pillars:
• Social Well-being – to improve the quality of life of all our people now and in the future
• Economic Well-being – to grow and sustain our economy to create more and better employment opportunities for everyone
• Environmental Well-being – to live in a low carbon, sustainably designed and connected region
8 Local Growth Plans have been developed for Strabane Town and the 7 District Electoral Areas (Ballyarnett, Derg, Faughan, Foyleside, Sperrin, The Moor and Waterside). Extensive consultation has been carried out in each of the local community planning areas with 48 workshops held over the 2016 – 2017 period. The local growth plans will feed into the overarching Strategic Growth Plan and their key purpose will be to develop local actions to address local needs.
