Pride in Camp Hill Consultation

Closed 31 Jul 2018

Opened 3 Jul 2018

Overview

We are consulting on the proposal to stop funding the dedicated Pride in Camp Hill (Pinch) team, based in the CHESS Centre in Camp Hill. We need to make this saving of £102k, in order to contribute to the overall One Organisation Plan (OOP) savings 2014-18 of £4.4m. In February 2017 Warwickshire County Council's Cabinet agreed the need to make savings, including reviewing support to Pinch.

We are seeking the views of local Camp Hill residents & businesses, our partners Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, Homes England, Barratt Homes, Lovells, and local stakeholders including local schools, the local Church and Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action.

More Information

Pinch is a successful regeneration programme, which started in 1998 and has resulted in a transformed community, with over 800 new homes, a new village centre, new business opportunities and improved road layout.  The many awards and accolades it has won from professional organisations over the last 20 years is testament to this. As the housing programme delivers its final phase, the success of the regeneration programme means that there is no longer a need or justification for a dedicated local team.

The work of Pinch has changed significantly over the years. The early years focused on working extensively and closely with the local community delivering externally funded programmes to support skills development, training, employment, recreational and environmental improvements, alongside construction of new homes and businesses. More recently Pinch has supported a smaller range of projects with less community development work. The focus has been on supporting the Pinch Board, providing the community publication, Camp Hill News and www.prideincamphill.co.uk and maintaining support for implementing the final housing programme ( 370 homes).

In the absence of a dedicated Pinch team Warwickshire County Council would still continue to support Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council to deliver the final housing programme and would still continue to be represented on the Pinch Board.
