Major IT issue

We are working to resolve IT problems that mean people completing benefit online forms may not be able to complete or submit them.

The problems also mean that our staff and contact service are not able to access all their computer systems.

You can still carry out most transactions on our website. If you need to contact us by phone and your call is urgent we will try to help you. If your call is not urgent please contact us next week.

Apologies for the inconvenience while we resolve this problem.

Community-led plans

Community-led plans (also known as Parish Plans) identify community needs and set out a shared vision for the local community.

Community-led plans can be much broader than neighbourhood plans, covering more than just planning issues. Often instigated by the parish council, they are led by a steering group of community members, on which the parish council usually has a presence.

A community-led plan will involve widespread and effective community involvement, so the views of the whole community can be taken into account.

The final plan will identify key facilities and services, set out the problems that need to be tackled and will include an action plan to bring about the desired changes.

Community-led plans are valuable in providing evidence to decision makers and in support of applications to funding organisations, where evidence of need must be demonstrated. 

The District Council supports communities to develop these plans. If you are interested in conducting a community-led plan, e-mail and you will be contacted by a Development Officer.

The following plans have been undertaken:
