Community Strategy and accompanying publications

The Future of Our Community 2008 – 2018:

The third community strategy for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

A new and third Community Strategy for Kensington and Chelsea was published by the Kensington and Chelsea Partnership at the end of 2008. ‘The Future of Our Community, Community Strategy 2008 – 2018’ is a collaborative effort on behalf of the Council, the Police, the Fire Service, NHS Kensington and Chelsea, voluntary organisations and the local business community. The new strategy contains updated ambitions, aims and objectives and highlights new projects and policy developments that have emerged since the 2005 Community Strategy, underpinned by extensive public consultation.

A Picture of Our Community:

Facts and figures about the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea 2008

The strategy is accompanied by 'A Picture of Our Community – Facts and figures about the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea 2008', which presents a range of the latest information, statistical analysis and indicators to provide a comprehensive picture of the Royal Borough and the people who live in, work in and visit the borough. The 2008 version of 'A Picture of Our Community' is the second edition of the publication. You can download each chapter of the document here:

 

Delivering for Our Community

The Kensington and Chelsea Partnership has produced a delivery plan for the third Community Strategy entitled 'Delivering for Our Community'.' Delivering for Our Community' contains a set of performance measures to show progress against the aims and objectives within the Community Strategy, and sets targets for achievement in the future. 'Delivering for Our Community' is also known as the full new Local Area Agreement for Kensington and Chelsea and therefore contains a set of targets negotiated with Government, called ‘designated’ Local Area Agreement targets. These are denoted with *.

'Delivering for Our Community' will be updated regularly to take account of new performance data and information as this becomes available. The Kensington and Chelsea Partnership will also publish a progress report showing how well the Partnership is meeting the performance targets in the plan, on an annual basis.

The Future Of Our Community 2005-2015:

The second Community Strategy for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

In November 2005 the Kensington and Chelsea Partnership published its second Community Strategy entitled 'The Future of Our Community 2005 – 2015'. The strategy presents a long-term vision to enhance quality of life for local communities, co-ordinating the actions of the public agencies and private and community organisations in the borough.

Improving our Community - Monitoring the delivery of the Community Strategy 2006-2009

This monitoring plan accompanies the 2005 Community Strategy and presents a suite of performance indicators to monitor progress against the aims in the Community Strategy. Organised around the eight themes of the Community Strategy the monitoring plan contains a mix of quantitative and qualitative performance measures which when put together enable the Partnership to measure progress against the strategy’s aims and ambitions.

Community Strategy 2005 update, published 2007

The Partnership carried out a mid term review of the 2005 Community Strategy in October 2007 and published an update of the aims and objectives of the strategy. The update is meant to be read in conjunction with the 2005 strategy.

The Future of Our Community 2002: the first Community Strategy for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

The first Community Strategy for Kensington and Chelsea was published in 2002 and was developed together with the Neighbourhood Renewal Strategy entitled 'Renewing Our Neighbourhoods 2002'. To receive support from the government’s Neighbourhood Renewal Fund, the Kensington and Chelsea Partnership was required to produce a Neighbourhood Renewal Strategy detailing specific actions to be delivered in the most deprived parts of the borough. The Community Strategy presented an overall vision and some broad themes, and the Neighbourhood Renewal Strategy related these to the different localities within the borough.

Renewing our Neighbourhoods Strategy Statement and Action 2002: the Neighbourhood Renewal Strategy for the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

Two further documents supported development of the first Community Strategy and the Neighbourhood Renewal Strategy; a 'Summary of Progress', detailing preparatory work for the strategy and 'Area Profiles’, showing research, statistics and information about the borough.

Community Strategy and Neighbourhood Renewal Progress Report 2004

In 2004 the Kensington and Chelsea Partnership looked at each of the objectives in the 2002 Community Strategy and Neighbourhood Renewal Strategy to assess how well these were being achieved.

Neighbourhood Renewal Fund evaluation 2004/05 - 2005/06

The Kensington and Chelsea Partnership was awarded further Neighbourhood Renewal Funding from 2004/05 to 2005/06. A variety of projects were supported to improve quality of life in the most deprived areas of the borough. Using quantitative and qualitative research methodologies, this report evaluates the success of the three years of Neighbourhood Renewal Funding.

Local Area Agreements

The Local Area Agreement is known as a set of targets which show how the Partnership is delivering its priorities in the local area. In Kensington and Chelsea, the Local Area Agreement is 'Delivering for Our Community' since this is the delivery plan for the Community Strategy which sets out the Partnership's priorities in the local area. 'Delivering for Our Community' consists of 'designated targets', which are those targets the Partnership negotiated with Government and 'local targets', which are those targets partners negotiated amongst themselves. As with the Community Strategy, 'Delivering for Our Community' was developed by consulting each of the organisations within the Partnership to determine what measures should be used to track progress in delivering the Community Strategy.

'Delivering for Our Community' is the second Local Area Agreement for Kensington and Chelsea.
