The Neighbourhood Strategy group’s aim is to work together as a partnership and with wider partners to help improve the neighbourhoods of Oldham and the facilities and services within them in the most cost effective way possible; to raise the profile of the work which the partners are doing both individually and collectively in neighbourhoods and to promote partnership working and work together to deliver innovative solutions in neighbourhoods as well as assisting with the delivery of the Housing Strategy and Oldham Plan.
The group supports the delivery of projects through the project groups and looks at tackling issues in the neighbourhoods. They will use the Asset Based Community Development approach when working in neighbourhoods and delivering projects. The group provides regular feedback to OHIP Board and the Neighbourhoods and Communities Cluster.
Neighbourhood Strategy Project Group
Project groups are set up to deliver projects identified by the main group. All OHIP partner organisations have the opportunity to have a representative on the project group. The work carried out by the project group is to the benefit of all OHIP partners. Progress is fed back regularly to the main working group. As and when projects are completed, further project groups will be set up to deliver new relevant projects in relation to the aim of the main working group.
