Local Strategic Partnership
The Local Strategic Partnership (LSP) was set up in 2002 to produce the Community Strategy for Three Rivers. It has links with other partnerships and forums in the district - all of which are working towards achieving the priorities of the Strategy.
The LSP Board is made up of representatives from public, private and voluntary and community sector organisations, which are based in and around the district, and aims to build on the successful partnership working which already existed. Membership is set at senior politician, board or chief officer level to ensure that members have the necessary authority to speak for their organisations and to commit the resources needed to turn the vision into a reality.
The partnership works to Terms of Reference, agreed by all partners.
Meetings of the Board are held three times a year and are open to the public. If you have an issue you would like the LSP to consider please contact Three Rivers District Council.
Details of the LSP Board meetings can be viewed here.
The LSP’s vision is
“The Local Strategic Partnership works to improve the quality of life for the people of Three Rivers by working in partnership to create a district which is safe, healthy, and prosperous, and which is where people want and are able to live, work and visit.”
