5. CONSULTATION ON THE SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY STRATEGY 2008-2021 and its delivery plans, the LOCAL AREA AGREEMENT (priorities for 2008-11) and THE LOCAL DEVELOPMENT FRAMEWORK Sustainable Community Strategy Members informed that the draft Sustainable Community Strategy (SCS) is currently out for consultation. The SCS will run from 2008-2021 so is therefore a much longer- term visionary document than the previous Community Strategy. It was noted that the draft SCS incorporates comments made at the January 2007 Renaissance Event and evidence from the 2006 MORI survey. Members were asked to feed any comments on the draft SCS document to the Neighbourhood Renewal and LSP Team by the end of July 2007. Local Development Framework (LDF): It was noted that the LDF is the spatial aspect of the SCS and is centred around how land based needs will be delivered in the Borough. Individual authorities have individual frameworks and the SCS sets the local context for the LDF in Stockton.

6. DEVELOPMENT OF AN OLDER PEOPLE STRATEGY AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HEALTH AND WELLBEING PARTNERSHIP Members were informed that the Older People’s Strategy is being presented to all four Area Partnership Boards and other services and organisations in order to develop the Older People’s Strategy. Members were informed that the Strategy is a vision for all adults and all services and it is recognised that it will be a big challenge in terms of demographics and a challenge to services to deliver on this. The Strategy will apply to the whole Borough – it is acknowledged that by getting the Strategy right for older people, will get it right for the whole Borough. It was also reported that the Adult Care Partnership and the Health Improvement Partnership would dissolve to form the Health and Well Being Partnership. This is currently under consultation. 7.
