Action with Communities in Rural England has launched a comprehensive resource for Community Led Planning (CLP). This site includes information on how the CLP approach allows local people to decide their own future, how local government can build on the energies of local residents to engage with local communities and the many benefits such an approach has for all those concerned with making community empowerment a reality. Community Led Planning is a structured process that engages local people in debate about their local area.  It encourages them to identify local needs, to develop local solutions and have real influence with local decision-making about the needs, priorities and their future.
