Lisburn and Castlereagh Community Planning Partnership Statement of Progress
Community Planning came into being in April 2015 with Local Goverment Reform. The Local Government Act (Northern Ireland) 2014 provides the high level framework for the operation of community planning and outlines the roles and responsibilities of the council and the community planning partners.
The council must initiate, maintain, facilitate and participate in community planning processes along with its partners. Working together the Community Planning Partnership must identify long term objectives for improving the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of the area, contribute to achieving sustainable development, promote equality and good relations and tackle poverty, social exclusion and deprivation.
Measuring how well the Partnership has addressed these issues is ongoing and the council is responsible for preparing a Statement of Progress (SoP) within which successes and challenges are identified. The Department for Communities (DfC) is the overseeing department for the local delivery of community planning and set a date of 30 November 2019 for the first SoP.
