At the last HEGLAT meeting we discussed the way that that Hanover and Elm Grove is one of the councils pilot areas for partnership working with the community and it was agreed that a community led action plan should be explored with council support over the coming months.
A working group has been set up to work out how to identify priorities and involve as many people and local groups in the production of this action plan, and will try to meet twice over the summer and then report back with some recommendations to the wider LAT when we meet again in the autumn.
The plan would identify the local priorities and set out how the local groups, the different council services and other agencies (such as police, health, universities) will work together do to tackle these priorities. The issue of lack of council resources to achieve any desired changes was raised as an obstacle, but it was suggested that by putting some resources into this partnership between residents and the council more could be achieved within the existing resources.
