This site contains information about Community Led Plans across the whole of the
South East of England. Community Led Plans are produced by and for communities,
based on a detailed consultation, involving the whole community which prompts action
and influences others. Read more...
Good community plans, use the Community Led Planning Toolkit framework, are supported
by external facilitators, and can demonstrate a robust evaluation process. CLPs
underpin a community’s vision for itself across all aspects of social, environmental
and economic life. They celebrate positive features and activities, highlight community
needs and contain a detailed Action Plan to help the community meet those needs.

Update from Marston Vale Feb 2014
Update as follows
• Encourage the Marston Vale Community Rail Partnership to find a central point for a railway timetable
Working with Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Town Council to identify a location on Queensway.
• Support lobbying for an extension of the rail service to Central Milton Keynes
London Midland have announced that they are unable to deliver the extension during the current franchise running until 2017. MVCRP and other stakeholders were extremely disappointed to receive this notification and will be challenging the decision. The Milton Keynes extension was one of the core elements of the franchise when it was awarded in 2007.
• Encourage promotional events / material along the rail line for events / activities in Fenny Stratford.
MVCRP is working with the Friends of Fenny Stratford to encourage greater usage of the Marston Vale Line. The opening of Ridgmont Station provides an additional visitor attraction.
To start the process you need to get people interested using publicity and hold an open event to gather support to undertake the process.
Register on this website to make contact with your Rural Community Council and Local Authority who will be happy to support you all the way through the process of producing your plan.
Set up a steering group with wide representation from the community. Every steering group member can register on this website and have full access to all the resources available in your area.
Over a series of meetings put together a strategy, budget and programme on how you are going to undertake the plan, ensuring you consult with everyone in the community. Include in your programme the moments at which
you wish to involve local authorities, although it is best to engage with them, right from the beginning of your plan.
This is a time to undertake a variety of interesting and fun consultation exercises
involving as many people as possible both in taking part and in expressing their views. It's not all about questionnaires which should come ideally towards the end of your consultation process with the questions being drawn from the information already gained.
Consultation results analysed. Sort and prioritise the issues and begin to form
focus groups to take forward actions. Liaise with other agencies that have been identified in an action, to agree that what is being proposed is feasible and can be
delivered. This doesn’t mean you can’t have aspirations for future actions which are not possible at present.
Put together the first draft to share with the community and partner organisations. Make your plan more accessible to outside agencies
by entering your actions on this website. Show a draft plan to all relevant stakeholders.
Consult with the community and partner organisations and produce the final document. Upload a copy on this website and your own if you have one. At this point celebrate with your community but keep the momentum going to implement what you have decided.
Consolidate any actions started and begin to implement others. Update your progress on this website as you go to keep your Local Authority informed and in action.
Once you have completed a plan a regular review and update will ensure continuous progress on the needs and requirements of your community.
Keep your community informed of your progress. Successes and challenges should always be fed back to the rest of your community to keep them involved.
Neighbourhood Development Plans give local communities the opportunity to create planning policies that all subsequent planning applications in your area must conform to. Please contact your local planning authority if you are interested in creating a Neighbourhood Development Plan.
