Community Planning

Putting People First

Putting People First

“Putting People First” is the first community plan for the Mid and East Antrim area.

It was published on 31 March 2017, and officially launched on 6 June 2017.

Putting People First is the overarching document for Community Planning in MEA covering the 15 year period of 2017 – 2032.  

During the Community Engagement process of ‘Putting People First’ the people of MEA had their say and agreed with the themes and outcomes of our plan.

Working together, we want to make this an even better place for all of our citizens. Putting People First will enable all of us to achieve this. This plan will help all of the community planning partners to realise our vision of a strong, vibrant, safe and inclusive Mid and East Antrim.  

This is, therefore, an ambitious plan and over the 15-year life of the plan, the Community Planning Partnership has identified a range of outcomes we want to deliver for Mid and East Antrim.


The Community Plan will run in tandem with Councils Corporate Plan and the Local Development Plan, both are yet to be published.
