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.

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.
Community Led Plan (CLP) Update
have now held two meetings of the CLP Steering Committee. Progress has been
made on a number of fronts, with one of the most important initiatives being to
work closely with all groups in the village and in building stronger links
between the Parish Council, BVA and CLP Steering Committee.
will all be aware how valuable this newsletter is in communicating the news and
events that occur in the village of Beckermet. We hope to use the Beckermet
Newsletter to set out our objectives and report back what the community has set
as their priorities for its developments. In the coming weeks we will be
working on a questionnaire which, once compiled, will be taken door to door for
everyone to be able to share their views. The results will form the basis of
the Community Led Plan, and its details will be the template for the Steering
It was agreed by the committee that while we work on the
overall plan, we should take one of the challenges in the village and try to
make an immediate improvement. Within the village the isolation for residents
without access to any transport, continues to be major problem. So, we propose
to put a voluntary transport scheme in place. This will allow those residents who
need transport for appointments outside the village, to find volunteers with a
car and be taken to and from their appointment from their house in the village.
We believe we will be able to get funding to pay the costs for such a scheme. We
will, however, need a number of volunteers to offer their time. To establish
the need for such a scheme, could residents please put forward the names of any
villagers who would benefit, by contacting ___________________ on
