Communities How we help communities to plan and organise for their future Community Planning You may have heard about Community Led Planning or Neighbourhood Plans and need some more information and guidance. You will find what you are looking for in this section. Neighbourhood Planning Community Lincs offers a professional Consultation Service undertaking research and consultation in an inclusive and transparent way, vital to your Neighbourhood Plan’s credibility and acceptance. Community Led Plans A Community Led Plan determines the future of your community and how it can change for the better. It is a document that sets out a vision for the future and outlines how that can be achieved in an Action Plan. Community Reviews For smaller communities a lengthy consultation process is often impractical and beyond their means. This is why Community Lincs is offering a light touch approach tailored to support smaller parishes and communities called a Community Review. OCSI Data The OCSI Data Reports held by Community Lincs provide the summary information needed to effectively represent rural issues in Lincolnshire in relation to programme planning and prioritisation. Community Enterprise How we help communities to work effectively and efficiently. Feasibility Studies and Business Planning Community Lincs offers Business support to a range of small businesses, social enterprises and charitable or community organisations. Community Facilities Advisory Service Community Lincs povides a specialist advice and information service to help committees meet the challenges of managing a successful community facility. Finding Funding Sources The Lincolnshire Funding Portal is an online hub of grants and funding information. It has a user friendly website that allows you to find funding suitable for your project or organisation. Community Projects Examples of current projects where we are actively involved. T.E.D. Talk, Eat and Drink (T.E.D.) in East Lindsey is a six year, Big Lottery Funded project inspired by Lincolnshire’s proud food heritage, which will see older people getting out and about, becoming more involved in social activities and feeling positive about their future. Good Neighbours Scheme Good Neighbours Schemes are community projects run and delivered by groups of local volunteers. Whilst potentially benefitting the whole community, they are aimed primarily at helping elderly, disabled, vulnerable, frail or isolated people. Ex M.O.D. Villages The Ex MoD Village Project is funded by West Lindsey District Council, and works with the residents of the three Ex MoD villages in West Lindsey; Brookenby, Newtoft and Hemswell Cliff.
