Stronger Communities Strategy pdf icon PDF 98 KB

Report of Assistant Director – Wellbeing

 

Purpose of report

 

To present to Cabinet the final version of the Stronger Communities Strategy for South Northants and gain approval to adopt the strategy and supporting documents.

Recommendations

            

The meeting is recommended:

 

1.1      To approve and adopt the Stronger Communities Strategy, Strategic Delivery Plan and associated documents.

 

Additional documents:

Decision:

Resolved

 

(1)           That, having given due consideration, the Stronger Communities Strategy, Strategic Delivery Plan and associated documents (annexes to the Minutes as set out in the Minute Book) be approved and adopted.

Minutes:

The Assistant Director Wellbeing submitted a report which presented the final version of the Stronger Communities Strategy for South Northamptonshire and sought approval to adopt the strategy and supporting documents.

 

Resolved

 

(1)            That, having given due consideration, the Stronger Communities Strategy, Strategic Delivery Plan and associated documents (annexes to the Minutes as set out in the Minute Book) be approved and adopted.

 

Reasons

 

 

The Stronger Communities Strategy sets out SNC’s plans for community focused services from 2020 through to and including a period of transition into the new West Northants Authority.  This strategy has been shaped by national policy, local context and informed by data and information about our local communities.  

 

It is recommended that Cabinet approve the strategy and supporting documents.  This will enable the Healthy Communities Team to move forwards with the implementation of the Strategy Delivery Plan and deliver coordinated community engagement with partners to meet the needs of residents in South Northants.

 

Alternative Options

 

Option 1: To not adopt the Stronger Communities Strategy and associated documents.  Failure to adopt the strategy and associated documents would mean there would be no documents providing a robust evidence base summarising the key issues in the South Northants locality and presenting the distinct local challenges that need to be addressed in the district  including, isolation and connectivity.  Without a strategy there would not be a platform to positively shape the future of the residents of South Northants as we move from the current district council to the new West Northants Council.
