COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT & PLANNING

Marks in this category have been increased with greater emphasis on the overall quality of the Entry Form, map of the area and appropriateness of backup material included. Other key issues are the participation of the local community, business, schools and youth in general; working partnerships with local civic agencies; works carried out and appropriate projects completed; existence of an achievable updated Tidy Towns Plan. Consideration will be given to social inclusion, whole of community approach, the role of volunteers and new residents that is apparent in activities.
