Peak District Partnership Draft Statement of Priorities 2015-19

This consultation ended on 28 November 2014.

The Peak District Partnership (formerly the Local Strategic Partnership) brings together public, private and voluntary sector organisations working in the Derbyshire Dales and High Peak to deliver a shared vision for the Peak District. The Partnership provides a 'voice' for the area and aims to focus the collective resources of partners on priority issues best tackled in partnership, adding value to the work of individual agencies.

To guide its work, a Draft Statement of Priorities [PDF 0.5MB] has been prepared setting out the purpose, past achievements, evidence for and priorities of the Peak District Partnership. The Statement will provide the framework for partnership activity during the period 2015-19 and replace the current Sustainable Community Strategy 2009-2014. To ensure impact, two priorities have been identified as the Partnership's primary focus for joint activity / shared actions over the next five years:

  • Priority 1 - Maximise the benefits for Peak District communities from programmes aimed at stimulating economic growth
  • Priority 2 - Reduce health inequalities and improve wellbeing in the Peak District, focusing on individuals and communities with poorer health or difficulty accessing services

The Draft Statement of Priorities [PDF 0.5MB] also includes proposed actions to help address these priorities aimed at filling gaps in current delivery.
