*South West Area Statement -“The Area Statements are one of the products of the Environment (Wales) Act that NRW has been tasked with delivering. They’ll bring together the evidence around our natural resources and what can be done to enhance them. They will drive on-the-ground delivery of sustainable management of natural resources, and will be a fundamental building block for planning processes in Wales such as Well-Being Plans, Local Development Plans, and much more…
Area Statements will set out what NRW and others can do to achieve the sustainable management of our natural resources… For this reason we are coming to speak to you about why the South West Area Statement needs you and your members, what you’ll get from taking part in the process, and how to get involved.”
**Carmarthenshire Well-being Plan– Under the Well-being and Future Generations Act, Carmarthenshire PSB was charged with creating a Well-being Plan for Carmarthenshire.
The actions specified in the Well-being plan are being taken forward by 4 PSB delivery groups:
- Healthy Habits – Healthy Environment Delivery Group – Environmental & Climate Change Risk Assessment
- Early Intervention & Prevention Delivery Group – Changing the Model of Delivery
- Strong Connections Delivery Group – Innovative Community Assets
- Prosperous People & Places Delivery Group – Procurement Procedures / Education & Employment
There will be representation from the 3rd sector on these delivery groups.
In order to ensure that the 3rd sector is involved in the implementation of the Well-being plan and that the 3rd sector voice is heard CAVS will set up new networks to mirror these PSB delivery groups.
These networks will allow 3rd Sector organisations to be updated on the progress of the delivery groups and to be able to feedback and input to them through CAVS and other 3rd Sector representatives.
