Community Led Plan

The Church Broughton Community Plan (CLP) was published in April 2017. The Plan sets out a vision of how our community wants to develop and identifies the actions needed to achieve it.

The Plan was developed following consultation with the community through public meetings and a questionnaire that was available to all local residents. The Plan was produced by members of our community, for our community. A community plan does not have legal weight, and doesn’t cover planning policy, but it will be used as an action plan, a way of getting organised, raising money and implementing projects that will benefit the community.

Working Groups were set up to review and investigate the 9 key topics covering the issues and suggestions raised by members of the Community. The Action Plans setting out what each Working Group planned to do and what they have achieved so far can be found by following the links to each of the Working Groups below:

Environmental issues

Village Hall & Meeting Places

Village Shop

Roads and Transport

Work & Communications

Health & Well-being

Sports & Leisure

Development & Housing


Over the last 4 – 5 years, a lot of work has been carried out by the Working Groups to evaluate the suggestions and implement appropriate plans where possible. Examples include: starting various activity classes, organising Soup & Pud lunches, organising litter picks, establishing a Village Shop and cafe (The Hub), setting up a Walking Group, preparing a leaflet of local walks, providing advice on planning issues, providing information on how to report highway and litter issues, raising awareness about the issue of dog mess, preparing the Church Broughton Handbook, reviewing internet and mobile phone services, investigating options for village meeting places, organising training in defibrillator use and first aid, supporting the village volunteer driver scheme and, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, setting up a support system for the vulnerable, etc.

2021 Questionnaire

A follow-up Questionnaire was issued in 2021 to collect feedback on what has been done so far and give people the opportunity to make suggestions on what else they would like the CLP to consider.

The results of the Questionnaire and your comments and suggestions have been reviewed by the Working Groups to help decide what should be done next. A summary of the proposed actions was presented at the public meeting on 1st October 2021.

Many good suggestions were made but we need more volunteers to carry the ideas forward. If you are interested in joining the Steering Group or any of the the Working Groups, please get in touch (contact details below).
