Description & History

Now in our 30th year, PLANED‘s team has a wealth of experience working with, and for the benefit of, communities that we can use to help you.

PLANED (Partnerships for Local Action and Network for Enterprise & Development) is a process as well as the name of our charitable organisation.

The PLANED process is about working with communities, enabling, facilitating and supporting them in locally integrated and sustainable development.

We engage local people in improving their quality of life – culturally, socially, environmentally and economically. We do this by delivering locally tailored initiatives, which build on existing community strengths and by empowering local people.

We believe in the importance of partnership working; collaborating with public sector bodies, the voluntary sector and special interest groups for the benefit of local communities.

PLANED works to implement a number of interrelated strategies which taken together promote sustainable living by: –

  • Supporting local community activities to improve their quality of life
  • Promoting a Sense of Place/Valuing the Environment
  • Developing a community culture of entrepreneurship
  • Encouraging local enterprise
  • Developing sustainable tourism
  • Supporting sustainable agriculture
