We aim to make the  CLP process as accessible and as engaging as possible for every community.

To enable you to gain an overview of the process and to familiarise yourself  with the focus of the different stages and how they interrelate, the following CLP resources, including the CLP Toolkit are available to download:

  • Sample CLPs

The CLP  TOOLKIT

The 9 module CLP process  

New challenges and changing contexts demand innovative methods of working with communities to help them achieve their goals and- in the process- build skills, capacity and resilience.  This can take 18 months to 2 years is not for everyone.

Community Led Planning ‘Lite’.

This accelerated planning process puts more emphasis on carrying out a survey or questionnaire and streamlines community involvement. Plan timescales are 4-6 months. Bespoke solutions can be tailored directly to the specific needs of a community, depending on what you want to achieve.
