Steering Group plans new Community Partnership

Following discussion and comments received at public meetings on 16th March and 25th April, a Steering Group has been formed to make plans for a new BCR Community Partnership.

The first public meeting organised by the Steering Group took place following the final BCR NP meeting on 5th June 2017. At this meeting, Eleanor Combley (acting Chair of the Steering Group) outlined the tasks that needed to be carried out over the next few months, including:

  • agreeing the aims of the new organisation, such as:
    • providing a shared platform for community groups in our area
    • holding quarterly public forums
    • bidding for funding for community projects
    • supporting community initiatives such as street scene, parks and libraries
  • creating a constitution that says how the new organisation will operate
  • electing officers and setting up a bank account
  • arranging future meetings and communications

The Steering Group is open to any individuals and representatives from local community groups and businesses who would like to help set up the new organisation

There are working groups currently involved in drawing up proposals for the CP organisation:

  • Constitution and Aims
  • Communications and Publicity
  • Finance.
