The Local Strategic Partnership is an umbrella organisation bringing together the public, private and voluntary and community sectors to improve the quality of life in the East Riding.
The objectives of the partnership are set out in Our East Riding which is the sustainable community plan for the area.
Our East Riding is an ambitious document that aims and succeeds to be inspirational regarding possible future developments.
However, if there is one criticism of the document – from a Hedon point of view – then that is the fact that the document is probably too general with not enough detail of specific local plans. Indeed, Hedon does not even appear in the document.
The document does have the aim to support voluntary and community groups to help inclusiveness and give a voice to harder-to-reach groups to have a say on the issues that matter to them. Perhaps those involved in voluntary endeavour in Hedon need to join more effectively with the Town Council and help them advocate for the town and its place in the East Riding?
The document is available to view here as a Scribd iPaper document: Our East Riding.
