FILKINS & BROUGHTON POGGS
Community Led Plan(CLP)
We might know where we are, but where are we going?
And where would we like to go?
"How does a CLP help us?
Compiling a ‘Community Led Plan’ (CLP) encourages us to look at ourselves and our aspirations, and plot a course forwards. It sounds a bit highfalutin, but actually it just means ‘we’ do the thinking and planning, rather than the unknown ‘them’!
Having a CLP doesn’t mean that our village will necessarily get exactly what it wants... But Good Things generally flow from co-operative thinking, and because CLPs are taken into account by district and county councils, having one might well mean that at least we won’t get what we don’t want!
And if we do hit upon activity and projects that we like (and I'm fairly sure we will!), having a CLP can make it much easier to work with councils and other organisations, to find funding where necessary, and to bring the projects to life. For instance, our last CLP (in 2004/5) led, among other things, to the establishment of our lovely Village Shop.
So, if you live and/or work in Filkins & Broughton Poggs, and would like to be involved, share your idea, and have your say... Please click below, and join in the discussion.
'The Filkins & Broughton Poggs Community Led Plan' has the support of our Parish Council, but is independently managed by a Steering Group of six villagers.
Everyone who lives and/or works in the Parish of Filkins & Broughton Poggs is warmly invited to take part in all of the discussions on these pages.
If you would find it easier to contribute to the CLP face to face, let us know, and a member of the Steering Group will visit you at home.
Steering group: Lee Bennett, Paul Floyd, Ian Grey, Andy Macer, Richard Martin, Sara Moule, Karen Todner
