Malling Action Partnership, or MAP, is a community-based partnership, launched 3 April 2006, that has undertaken a Market Towns Initiative 'health check' in the market town of West Malling (Kent, England) and its hinterland. A health check is just a detailed look at local services and seeing if they provide all the things that people who live in, work in, or visit the town, need and want.

The health check includes a community-developed vision for the future of West Malling as a market town, and an action plan. MAP will help advance community-chosen most-needed projects.

Project groups Edit

As of September 2010, there are three project groups concerned with Local food, Transport, and Events.
