Developing Your Plan
Baseline Evidence Data
An initial baseline evidence report was compiled after the introduction of Community Planning to Local Government to support the development of a community plan for Newry, Mourne and Down, This report included an extensive range of demographic, social, economic and environmental data. A full copy of this report is available to download in the downloads section.
Throughout the community planning process, overseen by the Community Planning Partnership Board, we have collated and identified a wide range of evidence to help assess the issues that are most relevant to the people of Newry, Mourne and Down. This analysis has been focused on the 21 indicators that underpin the 5 key outcomes of our Community Plan and are available for download below.
Economic Development, Regeneration and Tourism
Environment and Spatial Development
Health & Wellbeing
Safety and Good Relations
Thematic Delivery Groups
We have engaged with a number of stakeholders and it is clear that a range of diverse issues need to be addressed from support for young families, support through education and towards fulfilling our potential as we get older, to support for business and tourism development, all of which impact on our overall wellbeing. Therefore we have identified 21 key indicators that we will work on and measure to ensure we are making a real difference to the community and to our district.
The Community Planning Partnership has established four Thematic Delivery Groups:
- Health and Wellbeing
- Environment and Spatial Development
- Economic Development, Regeneration and Tourism
- Safety and Good Relations
Thematic Delivery Groups are responsible for identifying and delivering actions that will best achieve our planned outcomes, as measured by the 21 indicators.
