The key outcome for this activity is for all local communities in the Tararua District to develop a Community-Led Development Plan, or “Community Plan”, that details the community’s key aspirations, and the desired projects that will deliver outcomes for these aspirations. Plans will also share a brief history, demographics, and key assets of the community.
CLD is driven by each community, can take a long period of time to become an embedded practice and may take various twists and turns as part of the journey. This is to be expected.
CLD is a widely supported practice, particularly among philanthropic (charitable) trusts and agencies. It demonstrates community collaboration and can assist in attracting funding for the various projects developed as part of the plan.
