Parish plans are a form of community-led plan.
Parish plans determine the future of communities and how they can change for the better. They are documents that set out a vision for the future of a parish and outlines how that can be achieved in an action plan.
The parish plan process may include:
- a village appraisal – a household questionnaire to assess needs and aspirations of local people
- participatory appraisals – hands-on interactive workshops
- business surveys
- the creation of an action plan
Members of the rural community action network support groups in local communities to create Parish Plans.
Another community led plan is a village design statement
