Pembrokeshire Local Action Network for Enterprise and Development
“Delivering integrated community led local development”
PLANED is a community led development organisation working to improve quality of life for communities in the county of Pembrokeshire, south west Wales.
Our structure of partnership and participative democracy at two geographic levels, the county and the community, is unique in the United Kingdom and rare in Europe.
We place a strong and very practical emphasis on integrated development and sustainability. Ownership of projects and actions by each local community ensures that projects are well founded and have longevity.
The continuity of this work by PLANED, of over 30 years, matches the reality that local development is a long term process. Local development in Pembrokeshire benefits from the ongoing process of research and evaluation to ensure that methodologies are refined as communities develop capacity and confidence.
