Caerphilly Local Service Board is overseeing the production of the Single Integrated Plan for community planning. The Single Integrated Plan will be published for consultation early 2013 for implementation by April, 2013.
Following the Welsh Government consultation on the Single Integrated Plan the guidance document was published by the Welsh Government in June 2012 on integrating partnerships and plans.
