Training Webinar - Changing Communities – Local Agreements

  • May 22, 2013 · 2:30 PM
  • Online Meeting

In the 21st century many communities have to change or are having change thrust on them. When this happens then how can communities and stakeholders be in control of their own future and what sort of future might that be?

This is one of two webinars that we are holding in May that addresses community and change. In this webinar we look at local compacts or neighbourhood agreements where a community comes together with stakeholders to agree a common agenda for change.

What is a neighbourhood agreement?

A neighbourhood agreement is a ‘deal’ between ‘stakeholders’ in a defined neighbourhood in which each party makes commitments about how they will help improve the area. Usually this means an agreement between local residents and providers of local services and amenities. Such agreements have been used by housing providers, police forces and local authorities and with varying results.

This webinar provides an opportunity to discuss neighbourhood agreements, their value and what you will need to get it off the ground and to what extent it is,

  • A method of highlighting minimum standards and base line services
  • A way of working with the community to agree on their roles and responsibilities in the community
  • A method of empowering the community to be able to monitor and oversee local services
  • A way of a community to empower itself through partnership working.

This webinar will be presented by Maxine Moar who has been a National Delivery Manager for the Home Office, managing police teams and partners to develop and sustain neighbourhood agreements as well as develop initiatives and build strong communities. A key figure in building local and national Community Cohesion polices for over 10 years. she rose to prominence during and after the riots in Oldham and other northern cities and towns in 2001 and has been an adviser to the Home Office under both the Labour and Coalition Governments

    Helen- what was the question?

    It was interesting to take part in this for the first time. I would have liked more technical information before the event as it would have been easier to talk rather than to type. The information was good and so I hope I do receive the follow up hand books.
    I asked a question where the answer was "Don't know" and was told I would be contacted about this. Is this going to happen.

    Sandra- get yourself a champion ( Ch Exec, MP) someone with the power to support the group and jump in and protect their interest. without this you will always have 'power' issues that will ruin an agreement

    We are attempting to develop our plan but events are overtaking us. How do we apply some weight to our plans while it is going through a fairly long period of agreement. Developers are jumping in and dictating what our communities will look like and seems that the NPPF is the vehicle to allow them to do so.
