Community Solutions

What are Community Solutions?

Community solutions are a range of case studies and 'How-To' guides detailing how some communities have developed solutions to improve certain issues they have had.

How can you help?

We realise that there are many different solutions to each issue an area may face. Please contact us and let us know how your community has made improvements to your local area. We can then add this to the case studies or create a 'How-To' guide. In addition to letting us know how you have made improvements please let people know about this area of the website and ask us for written details of the case studies to hand out.

Case Studies

The case studies below set out a series of challenges that our communities face and are overcoming with help from a range of partners.

We will add more case studies as we work with our communities to solve local issues. However, we welcome ideas and solutions from other areas that we can launch on this site. The more information we have, the more use it will be to communities throughout the country.

How-To Guides

Below are a number of 'How-To' guides which provide useful information on how communities can develop certain projects. Please get in contact with the Council if there are any particular 'How-To' guides that you think would be useful.
