Conwy's previous Community Strategy set a long term Partnership vision for how Conwy planned to improve from 2004-2014. This Strategy is now 8 years old, but will be in existence until 2013. With this in mind the process of reviewing and updating the strategy began in earnest in 2010. The Welsh Government issued statutory guidance to support this process in 2009 under Part 2 of the Local Government Wales Measure.
This guidance recommended that those responsible for the Community Strategy ‘should involve the community throughout the community planning process … ensuring all involvement is continual and meaningful’.
