Three year review of the Sustainable Community Strategy
The Council and the Local Strategic Partnership have carried out a three year review of Sustainable Community Strategy 2008-18. The review aimed to help the Council and partners assess the progress we have made so far on our shared strategic priorities for the borough, it also provided our Local Strategic Partnership with an opportunity to have a considered conversation about how we can best work together in future in a way that continues to improve outcomes for local people, given all the challenges facing the public sector.
The review is made up of four sections:
The review concludes that we need to remain focused on efforts which continue to reduce crime and keep our streets and public spaces cleaner and better maintained. We also need to build on our track record for improving council homes and investing in existing and new amenities so that there is a decent quality of life in local neighbourhoods. The review found that key outcomes have continued to improve in many areas and highlighted the need to maintain the focus on key mainstream services such as education. The review also proposes a number of new recommendations in relation to issues which require a sharpening of focus across the partnership, to keep us on track to achieve our original vision and priorities. These are: managing growth and change, identifying and maximising employment opportunities, helping the long term unemployed move closer to employment, implementing the child poverty and family well being action plan and reviewing community engagement. We are working with colleagues to take these recommendations forward.
Responding to the violent disorder of August 2011
Nearly 150 people took part in a special partnership event at Stoke Newington Town Hall in Hackney on 14 November in response to the violent disorder that spread across the country this summer.
The gathering brought together representatives from the Council, police, local faith and community groups and other invited guests, including local MPs Diane Abbott and Meg Hillier, to learn about the initial findings from research undertaken to help identify possible causes behind the August disturbances in the borough.
The day also provided an opportunity for group discussions, looking at the key perceptions of underlying issues emerging from the research together with an overview of the disturbances, to help determine and feedback on actions required.
