Partnership being reviewed

A NEW approach to partnership work following funding cuts will help deliver ‘real benefits’ for the Ashfield district, council chiefs claim.

Ashfield District Council pulled out of the Ashfield Partnership in March following the withdrawal of Nottinghamshire County Council funding.

The partnership aimed to improve the economic, social and environmental wellbeing in the district, which includes Selston, Jacksdale and Underwood. Now, Ashfield District Council are planning a ‘major review’ to decided how best to continue the partnership’s work.

Mark Gwynne, interim change manager at Ashfield District Council, said: “What we will now see is a new task and finish approach which will help deliver real benefits that people can see without the need for having officers from the council, police, health and other partners involved in more meetings.”
