Partnership will dissolve

A PARTNERSHIP set up to improve the economic, social and environmental well-being of the Ashfield district is to dissolve because of a lack of funding.

Ashfield District Council’s cabinet agreed on Wednesday the it would withdraw from the Ashfield Partnership because of Nottinghamshire County Council cuts.

It was set up in 1999 and included representatives from local businesses, the county council, district council, and police. The move will make the partnership manager post redundant, but another temporary role will be created.
