The Grange Big Local Plan for the two years from April 2016 has now been endorsed.
An accompanying news release can be found here.
Key strategic areas that the Grange Big Local partnership consulted on are:
We want the community to feel connected and for there to be public spaces for people to meet up and take part.
Better facilities for children and young people have been consistently supported in all our consultations. We want to support projects for local children and young people.
We want to support local enterprise. We want to help people to get jobs and gain skills.
We want people to be proud of the place where they live and to feel a sense of ownership.
We want everyone to feel included in the community and to support each other. We recognise that we live in an area of great diversity, including a significant number of older and disabled people, and carers.
We want to support access to information and advice, including advice on benefits, debt management, housing and consumer rights.
Partnership support and development
In order to do this we will develop Board Member skills. We want to involve more people from the community and to leave a sustainable legacy.
This plan covers the next two years in some detail and outlines outcomes we want to achieve in ten years’ time.
