Community Strategy


The Local Government Act 2000 gives each Local Authority a duty to prepare a strategy for enhancing the quality of life of its local community.  The strategy should aim to achieve this through improving the economic, social and environmental well-being of the area and its residents.

The Strategy has been developed and implemented by the South Staffordshire Partnership and must have four key components:

  • A long-term vision for the area focusing on the outcomes that are to be achieved.
  • An action plan identifying shorter-term priorities and activities that will contribute to the achievement of long-term outcomes.
  • A shared commitment to implement the action plan and proposals for doing so.
  • Arrangements for monitoring the implementation of the action plan, for periodically reviewing the community strategy, and for reporting progress to local communities.
