17. Food-growing strategy template
17.1 The local authority's food-growing strategy ( FGS) should be delivered and reviewed through the local FGS template for the authority's area. Local authorities are required to review their strategy at least every five years.
17.2 The local authority's FGS template may include, but is not limited to, the points listed in the template provided at Annex A.
17.3 Where appropriate, the FGS template should reflect upon identified and time-lined actions; any delivery partners; what resources are required; funding requirements; and expected outputs and outcomes.
17.4 Local authorities can use the proposed template as they see fit. Authorities can use the template in its form as set out in Annex A, or the headings can be extracted from the template for use in another format, should this be preferable to the individual authority.
