Principles for partnership working
On 28 January 2011 Local Government North Yorkshire and York agreed four principles for a new approach to partnerships :
- the minimum number and simplest of partnership structures, consistent with delivering the required outcomes and statutory requirements;
- a North Yorkshire and York approach to county/sub-regional partnership structures as far as possible, recognising that a degree of pragmatism will be required given the different local authority structures in North Yorkshire and York;
- local partnerships, including shared community engagement arrangements, at the most appropriate local level; and
- the use of task and finish groups to deal with particular issues, rather than standing thematic partnerships or sub-groups.
