The PEACEPLUS Consultation Process
The Peace team is coordinating a consultation process with the wider community to develop a PEACEPLUS Local Community Action Plan. Stage 1 of the consultation process is complete with a number of public and online events taking place across the district in October/November 2022 alongside an online survey. The events were very successful in terms of the level of engagement and local priorities identified both at DEA and district level.
The consultation process is ongoing and there is still time for local communities to get involved and share their views on the development of a PEACEPLUS Local Community Action Plan. The stage 2 process will bring forward the key priorities identified at stage 1 and explore further potential project ideas/concepts. Dates and times of the Stage 2 Consultation events are as follows;
