Community planning

What is community planning?

Community planning is a new duty that we were given in 2015 as a result of  local government reform

We have led the community planning process and worked with a wide range of partners, including representatives from the statutory, business, higher education, and community and voluntary sectors, to develop a long-term plan to improve the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of the city.

Our community plan is known as the Belfast Agenda. It is the city’s strategic plan for the future. It provides a simple and clear framework for a wide range of plans and strategies which we'll take forward with our partner organisations.

Community planning is linked to our new powers.  We'll be addressing social issues, spatial planning and place shaping as part of these duties to improve the wellbeing of residents throughout the council area. 

Our partners

The following organisations have been named as community planning partners in legislation. They have a specific duty to participate in the community planning process.
