Members of the local community can have their say in shaping the future of the Borough following the launch of the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Draft Community Plan
Entitled ‘Connected’, the draft plan sets out the future direction of the Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough and will shape the areas in which people live, work and visit for the next 15 years.
The document was developed following a series of consultation events with key partners, local residents, businesses and community groups.
Lord Mayor of Armagh Banbridge and Craigavon, Councillor Garath Keating said: “The Draft Community Plan is a very important step in outlining how statutory bodies can work together with local people to help build a cohesive and positive future for the Borough.
“However, this document is only the beginning of the process. We are fully committed to ongoing community consultation and engagement and we want to share our vision with and hear the views and opinions from all members of the community. It’s your Borough and your future, it’s time to get Connected!”
