What is the Neighbourhood Partnership Board? The Neighbourhood Partnership Board was established in 2004 to make sure that the improvements and achievements during the time of the Housing Action Trust (1993-2005) are sustained and that the area continues to develop and prosper. It is chaired by Lord Corbett and consists of representatives from education, health, housing, the City Council and West Midlands Police. Castle Vale residents elect six of their own representatives to serve on the Board and elections for two Resident Board Members are held every year. Ensuring that the area continues to develop and prosper won’t happen by accident; it needs a plan that all partners and agencies will be committed to delivering and also be judged against! In this Neighbourhood Plan we identify the issues and the actions needed to tackle them and, importantly, who will be leading the way.

Community commissioning overview Community commissioning is an ambitious form of co-production – where power and responsibility for local public service commissioning is shared by local partners. It will vary from place to place depending on what makes sense locally but key elements have been evidenced as: devolving or sharing commissioning power and responsibility with communities; building community capacity to commission; strong local leadership and partnership working; locally set service priorities and outcomes; aligning or pooling resources; establishing robust governance and accountability.
