Seventeen parishes in the Upper Eden Valley collaborated to produce a Community Plan following extensive consultation with local residents. The purpose of a Parish or Community Plan like this is to reflect the concerns and aspirations of local people with a view to informing and influencing local and national government policies, actions and provision of services. A Community Plan gives everyone a chance to say what they think about social, economic and environmental issues affecting the community, and how they'd like to see the area improved. The Upper Eden Community Plan builds on the 2002 Vital Villages Healthcheck Report for Kirkby Stephen to help ensure that housing, health, education, transport and other services are provided in a joined up way for the benefit of the people who live and work in this area.
