The new Sustainable Community Strategy for the city - Brighton & Hove; the Connected City – was launched last night at the Hilton Metropole Hotel.
The strategy, published by the local strategic partnership – Brighton & Hove Connected - sets out a partnership approach for the public sector, private business and the community & voluntary sectors to come together to tackle city wide issues.
The last strategy was published in May 2010, and partnership working has delivered falling unemployment and high levels of satisfaction with the city among its citizens and with visitors. There are however many challenges, not least of which working together towards ensuring that everyone achieves their full potential in life.
sets out the ambitions and priorities for the future of the city as it evolves and adapts to meet changing circumstances.
Chair of Brighton & Hove Connected Tony Mernagh said;
“Brighton & Hove has earned a fine reputation for successful partnership working, and this will become even more important as the public sector goes through revolutionary changes and the private sector slowly emerges from the torpor that has gripped it for the past five years.
Vital too, will be the voluntary & community sector as it develops its role of providing key services. With the development of the wider Greater Brighton City Region, working with our neighbouring local authorities to pool ideas, resources and solutions will be increasingly important.”
