Sustainable Community Strategy / Tameside Strategic Partnership

The duty to prepare a Community Strategy was first mandated by the Local Government Act 2000.
These were renamed Sustainable Community Strategies as a result of the Sustainable Communities Act 2007 and the Local Government and Public Involvement in Health Act 2007.
The duty to prepare a Sustainable Community Strategy was repealed by the Deregulation Act 2015.
Local Strategic Partnerships (LSPs) were non-statutory public, private and voluntary and community sector partnerships. Although non-statutory, areas in receipt of Neighbourhood Renewal Fund (NRF) such as Tameside were expected by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to have an LSP. The view was that the LSP would provide strategic direction regarding the use of that funding (with the Council remaining as the accountable body).

As the NRF has now ceased and the duty to prepare a Sustainable Community Strategy has been repealed Tameside Strategic Partnership no longer exists in its previous format.

Partnership working remains a key priority for Tameside Council and our partners. We continue to work together with a wide number of organisations and stakeholders across all sectors.

One such example is the Tameside Health and Wellbeing Board which is the key strategic body for Tameside bringing together a range of organisations around common goals for improvement in community outcomes.

The Health and Social Care Act 2012 established health and wellbeing boards as a forum where key leaders from the health and care system work together to improve the health and wellbeing of their local population and reduce health inequalities.
