Community Led Plan for Beckermet

Cumbria Action describes a Community Led Plan in the following way:

  • It is led, driven and resourced through grass roots action.
  • The people working on Community Plans are volunteers, usually a mix of parish councillors and other local people.
  • It involves extensive community participation and engagement using techniques such as questionnaires, meetings, discussions and events.
  • It results in a credible action plan based on in-depth consultation.
  • The action plan produced sets out how local problems and issues can be tackled. This will include actions which the community can undertake alone, and actions which they need to address in partnership with local authorities or other agencies.

CLP Update

The Steering Group for Beckermet's Community Led Plan met on Monday 17th June to discuss the next phase of the plan. Below is a brief outline of that discussion:

·       A brief questionnaire for all Beckermet residents will be issued in October, with introductory information included in the August edition of the BVA Newsletter.

·       The questionnaire will be designed to build on the findings of the public event held in September 2018, and will take into account changes to our village since that date.

·       The questionnaire will be delivered to every household in the village by a team of volunteers and we will be asking people to complete the questionnaire between mid-October and mid-November.

·       Residents will be invited to complete the questionnaire in various ways - at their home with whoever delivers it, via a drop-in session/coffee morning etc or electronically. 

·       Each household will be invited to complete the questionnaire as individuals, couples, families, or any other combination, to ensure that we collect as many views as possible.

·       The findings of the questionnaire will be shared with residents as soon as they have been collated.

If you have any concerns, observations or queries about the Community Led Plan, or about the questionnaire described above, please contact a member of the steering group: Geoff , Simon , Tim or Wendie.
