Regional Area Plan


Each local Council and health board are required to prepare and publish an area plan. This sets out the range and level of services they propose or arrange to be provided. This is in response to the Population Needs Assessment (PNA). Area plans must include the specific services planned in response to each core theme identified in the PNA.

As part of this, area plans must include:

  • The actions partners will take relating to the most important areas of integration for Regional Partnership Boards;
  • The instances and details of pooled funds to be set up in response to the population assessment;
  • How services will be sourced or arranged to be delivered, including by other delivery models;
  • Details of the preventative services that will be given or arranged;
  • Actions being taken about to provide information, advice and assistance services; and
  • Actions required to deliver services through the medium of Welsh.

The RPB have developed their second Area Plan for final publication on 1st April 2023. The Area Plan documents can be found below.

The Area Plan will closely align to the 5 DRAFT Integrated Service Partnership Board (ISPB) Plans. These have been developed taking consideration of the population needs and place based care aims across each collaboration. The ISPB plans stay in DRAFT format for 2023/2024. The ISPBs will be developed and align with the RPB, Regional Public Service Board and wellbeing groups to make sure collaborative efforts. The 5 ISPB plans can be found below.
