Leaner sustainable communities
The Rushcliffe Community Partnership (also known as the Rushcliffe Local Strategic Partnership) was established in 2001 to provide a forum for local people and organisations with an interest in shaping the future of Rushcliffe. Since then all partners have worked together to achieve the Partnership’s priorities, improve the quality of life for everyone in Rushcliffe and make it a great place to live, work and visit.
However, in these challenging times it has been necessary to evaluate the management of the Community Partnership, at the same time retaining the effective delivery of priorities for Rushcliffe. All partners were consulted on future management arrangements with the resulting agreement to remove both the Executive Group and Management Board from the management structure. The effect of this agreement is expected to save valuable time and resources for all public sector partners, while the work of the Community Partnership will carry on through established groups such as the Nottinghamshire Health and Wellbeing Board, the South Nottinghamshire Community Safety Partnership and other established partnership groups. These groups will continue to deliver programmes for the ongoing sustainable development of the area which will be reported in the Rushcliffe Sustainable Community Strategy.
