Community Planning

A new power, which came into being when new councils were formed in April 2015, Community Planning is about the public, voluntary and community sector working together to design and deliver services which make a real difference to the lives of local people.

Mid Ulster's Community Plan sets out a vision for our place as:

A welcoming place where our people are content, healthy and safe; educated and skilled; where our economy is thriving; our environment and heritage are sustained; and where our public services excel

The Community Plan for Mid Ulster has identified 15 outcomes encompassed in 5 themes:

  • Economic growth

  • ​Infrastructure

  • Education and skills

  • ​Health and well-being

  • Vibrant and safe communities


The proposed outcomes impact on all areas of life, from increasing access to affordable housing and caring for those who are most vulnerable, to creating vibrant towns and villages, safer communities and better skilled and qualified people. Attached to these outcomes are a substantial set of actions which all the Community Planning Partners will work to deliver over the next 10 years.

The Community Plan was developed following extensive research and community engagement and community involvement in updates and review of delivery remains a key element of the community planning process.
