The process of developing the plan can take between 12 and 48 months.
The key steps in the process are:
Approval to undertake the plan
Approval and community notification to undertake the plan.
Establish a steering committee and working groups
Background information: The policies and recommendations in the plan will be evidence based. This process will involve looking at the parish past, current and future to build a picture of where we have been, where we are now and where we are likely to be in the future.
Gathering the views of the community: The most critical part of the plan; engaging the community through surveys, attendance at events and workshops.
