1.      PURPOSE OF THE SRB PROGRAMME

        The purpose of the plan is to secure the comprehensive regeneration of Seedley
        and Langworthy, located within the Inner City of Salford alongside two targeted
        and co-ordinated City-wide programmes of Economic Development and Social
        Inclusion. These are referred to as the three programme strands.

2.      REVIEW OF 2001/02 (YEAR 3) ACTIVITY

2.1 Programme Overview

        This Delivery Plan will review the progress across the three strands of the
        programme and set out the Partnership priorities for 2002/03. The programme
        currently contains 55 projects, of which 24 were appraised, approved and
        commenced during the year.

2.2 Seedley and Langworthy




 F:\pdf\2c2c86b9-34df-4b45-af19-9fac611baf9d.DOC
                                                   4
       The area based programme has one physical programme and four social
       programmes. Considerable progress has been made in all areas during the year
       and this is summarised below

2.3 Physical Programme : Living Environment

       The main emphasis within the Living Environment theme has been the delivery of
       the Urban Design Masterplan, which sets out the strategy to drive forward the
       physical regeneration of Seedley & Langworthy. Some of the highlights are
       listed:-

        By the end of the year, approximately 600 properties will have been acquired by the
         Partnership through voluntary acquisitions, enabling future clearance and new
         development opportunities.

        The first clearance area was declared, allowing a more targeted approach to
         acquisition through Compulsory Purchase powers.

        The innovative homeswaps scheme has been developed and tested through a pilot
         scheme. This ground breaking initiative has been scrutinised internally by the
         Partnership and Salford City Council, and externally by District Audit, DTLR, legal
         experts, and key Mortgage lenders, and has now developed to the point where it can
         be rolled out across the area. It enables owner occupiers in clearance areas to
         relocate within Seedley and Langworthy at no additional cost to them, thus
         overcoming the issue of negative equity, whilst helping stabilize the community, and
         releasing properties for clearance.

        Major renovation works have started in the Langworthy North area, stabilising a key
         area to be retained. Local residents are involved in the detailed design work.

        Other property and environmental improvements have started including group
         schemes, alleygating and individual property grants

        The retention of the traders has been identified as a priority for a sustainable
         community and progress has been made on the shopping strategy. Over 20 shops
         have been acquired either for demolition or to decant existing businesses into.

        The new community housing company – Salford First – was launched and is due to
         open its new office on Langworthy Road by the end of the year.

        The innovative Landlord Accreditation scheme has developed significantly over the
         year, with over 80 landlords benefiting from support to improve their services, and
         currently 25 who have agreed to meet a Code of Standards.

                                                  5
2.4           Social Programmes

2.5           Strengthening the community - Early work to harness the skills and
              enthusiasm of the local community is being realised.

        Over 25 groups have taken advantage of the small grants pot to support their
         activities and the initiative has been expanded to specifically address the needs of
         older people.
        The programme of community events attracts both an army of volunteers and
         enhances the spirit and unity of the community. The photographic evidence is
         creatively displayed throughout the Langworthy Cornerstone, and the Shooting
         people exhibition, a profile of community images reached a wider audience at the
         Lowry.
        The Langworthy Cornerstone, named by a community vote, has opened and is fast
         becoming an integral part of the community with many groups taking advantage of
         this prestigious space to hold activities and meetings. The SRB5 team is located in
         the building and is more accessible to the local people.
        SALI has developed a strategic business plan to give direction to its development
         and has continued to provide a wide range of advice, advocacy and development
         activities from the community resource shop.

2.6           Crime and community safety - All of the crime and community safety
              projects have been subject to evaluation during this year and the content
              shaped and reviewed accordingly.

        Burglary reduction scheme continues to target burglary hot spots to support
         growing community confidence.
        A new initiative to tackle alcohol related issues has recently got underway as a
         direct response to requests from the community. A dedicated project worker will
         work in partnership with the detached youth worker team to access young people
         most at risk, and work with local traders.
        Anti-social behaviour orders are imminent as a direct result of the Civil Law
         Enforcement Officer working with local residents to obtain evidence on two local
         youths.
        A new multi agency system to assist people recording and reporting neighbourhood
         nuisance and anti-social behaviour is being piloted in the area.

2.7           Children and young people - The task group overseeing this programme is
              informal and diverse and over the last 12 months has encouraged a number
              of young people into its ranks.

        The ever-popular multi agency Sparky project has provided a range of positive
         opportunities to channel the energy of young people into constructive activities.
         City of Salford are using Sparky as a best practice model to be duplicated
         elsewhere in the city.

                                                  6
        The Communities That Care project risk audit was produced and priorities for action
         identified by the Community Board.
        The Princes Trust personal development programme targeting unemployed young
         adults embarked on a recruitment drive in Seedley and Langworthy, with the first
         trainees due to benefit by the end of the year.
        The voluntary sector Lifecentre initiative has had a successful pilot year delivering
         money management, arts and crafts, DJ workshop session and personal development
         group sessions from its base on Langworthy Road.

2.8           Community learning, enterprise and employment - During the year, the
              work of the former personal, social and economic well-being group was
              reviewed and re-defined to target the ‘Economically Prosperous’ and
              ‘Learning and Creative’ themes, identified within the Community Plan. A new
              Task Group (Community Learning, Employment, Enterprise and Training) has
              replaced the PSE Group.

        The new SLATE project has employed a local person as outreach worker to maximize
         the employment and educational prospects of local people. The project officer also
         brings the opportunities offered by Jobshop Plus to the local community.
        The ICT in the Community project has provided taster ICT courses in venues
         convenient to local groups, more advanced courses with internet access have been
         run from Salford Foyer. Demand has consistently exceeded supply leading to
         requests for increased and more diverse ICT provision in 2002/03.
        One of the most significant projects of the latter part of the year was Radio
         Regeneration – a city-wide initiative supported locally. This successfully engaged a
         range of different community and social groups in a collaborative project to
         broadcast a range of programmes for 72 hours.

2.9           City-wide Social Inclusion Programme

              The work of the Social Inclusion Task Group is underpinned by the Social
              Inclusion Framework and Action Plan. The framework identifies that the
              responsibility for promoting social inclusion lies within the mainstream work
              of all the Salford partners. The SRB 5 programme was designed to ensure
              that resources are targeted on piloting new ways of working together,
              developing capacity particularly within the community and voluntary sectors,
              and building on good innovative practice which is tackling particularly
              difficult problems. The Social Inclusion Programme has focused on three key
              areas this year :-

2.10          Capacity Building

              The establishment of the multi-agency Salford Partnership Team and the
              production of the Capacity Releasing Strategy have provided a foundation



F:\pdf\2c2c86b9-34df-4b45-af19-9fac611baf9d.DOC
                                                  7
              for this priority area. The main SRB funded projects have developed
              through out the year to begin delivering at the latter end of the programme.
              The School for Social Entrepreneurs began its programme in January 2002,
              and the Youth Action Project has delivered work in most of the Community
              Committee areas. Policy work to support the development of Salford's Black
              and Minority Ethnic Communities has been developed in the context of a
              number of other developments concerning these communities, including the
              Crime and Disorder Strategy and the Stephen Lawrence Report. Initiatives
              to support emerging policy in this area forms one of the priorities for next
              year highlighted below.

2.11          Crime and Community Safety

              The focus on Crime and Disorder has led to the successful establishment of
              a number of innovative approaches. The pilot Neighbourhood Warden's
              Scheme has encouraged a number of other communities to bid successfully
              for resources to develop schemes of their own. The Crime and Disorder
              Team has been established to pilot the development of procedures to use
              increased civil law powers to curb anti-social behaviour. The Youth
              Offending Team has continued to develop innovative methods to challenge
              and change the behaviours of young people.

2.12          Anti Poverty

              The focus on Anti-Poverty work has led to establishing a team of benefit
              checkers to ensure that all elderly people in the city are getting the
              benefits to which they are entitled. This work has been matched by a
              Community Legal Services funded project to offer the same service to
              people in Housing Association, private, and sheltered accommodation.
              Support for people suffering from financial exclusion has been extended to
              give support to the River Valley Credit Union. This work complements that of
              Salford Moneyline, which has been successfully expanding its services over
              the year, and exploring ways of rolling out its services to new parts of the
              City.

2.13            City-wide Economic Development Programme

              The Economic Development Programme has continued to follow a twin track
              strategy to support new, micro, small and medium sized businesses to
              prosper and grow, whilst removing barriers to employment for those most
              disadvantaged in the labour market.

                                                  8
              A key activity this year was the establishment of the integrated employment
              and training service ‘Job Shop Plus.’ Employment Regeneration Partnership
              and MANCAT secured the contract in July, and by the end of the year had
              recruited a team of 30 people working out of four permanent centres across
              the City, with the support of a peripatetic team of outreach workers. The
              initiative offers advice, upskilling and job matching for Salford residents.
              It operates in partnership with the Employment Service to ensure a
              seamless service for clients.

              New business support activities in 2001/02 included support for the creative
              industries growth sector. New business start ups, micro business growth,
              business loans and improved business security schemes continued to be
              promoted.

              A range of new employability initiatives included the development of a new
              ICT initiative to provide and enhance basic ICT skills in the community, the
              launch of the city-wide Radio Regen initiative into the first of the nine
              Community Areas, and support for the extension of the City Pride-wide
              Intermediate Labour Market Scheme to the over 25’s client group.

3. PROGRAMME FOR 2002/03 (YEAR 4)

Seedley and Langworthy

3.1           The Participatory appraisal work collected for last years Delivery Plan was
              reviewed this year to ensure all outstanding priorities identified by the
              community were picked up and addressed. These issues were considered at a
              community event in December which benefitted from the attendance of a
              number of young people from the new Youth Forum.

Physical Programme

3.2           In Year 4 we plan major positive changes within the area in line with the
              Urban Design masterplan . It is anticipated that there will be significant
              demolition as the homeswaps scheme and the Compulsory Purchase of vacant
              properties allows a more targeted acquisition policy to give the Partnership
              ownership of complete rows of terracing, and the first phase of physical
              work in the Urban Village Centre will begin. The homeswap pilot will be
              refined and rolled out to all owner-occupiers in clearance areas on a phased
              programme. Detailed design work with residents in Seedley West will take
              place to start the remodelling process. More landlords are expected to take
              part in the Landlord Accreditation scheme and further work will be


F:\pdf\2c2c86b9-34df-4b45-af19-9fac611baf9d.DOC
                                                  9
              undertaken to prepare Seedley & Langworthy for the possibility of a piloting
              of Landlord Licensing.

3.3           Feasibility work will commence on the traffic and transportation
              improvements, and on specific development opportunities that have arisen
              over the last year including a potential new primary school, a voluntary
              sector led play resource centre (GRUMPY) and opportunities on the boundary
              between the regeneration area and Salford precinct. The homezone concept
              will be explored with the Community and funding bid prepared.

3.4           Environmental maintenance remains a high priority for the community,
              particularly as the many vacant properties awaiting demolition deteriorate
              and are subject to vandalism. A strategy to deal with the causes and effects
              of environmental deterioration is planned. Additional street cleansing,
              boarding up, and refuse removal services will be supplemented by a
              Groundwork programme addressing environmental education and community
              led environmental improvement action. There will be a strong link to the
              proposed community wardens scheme, and public art will be used as a tool to
              increase community involvement and pride.

Social Programme

3.5           It is anticipated that Year 4 will be another challenging year for the Seedley
              and Langworthy regeneration programme. A wide ranging programme will
              continue to be supported by SRB funding. A number of projects across the
              social programme have been evaluated during the year and are to continue
              to receive funding into year 4 and beyond with improvements to project
              design and delivery to meet emerging needs identified. For example the
              communications project is to be enhanced to fund a full time post and
              appropriate activities with a particular focus on improving the image of the
              area externally to support the wider regeneration programme.

3.6           New activities will commence in the following priority areas:-

 Crime and community Safety – This has been identified as the part of the social
  programme requiring particular attention next year. Whilst there are already a number
  of activities to address burglary reduction and reduce anti-social behaviour, the
  Partnership will be developing a new strategic approach to neighbourhood management
  next year. This will involve improved multi-agency working, the development of a
  community warden scheme in consultation with local residents, implementation of
  evidence collection schemes to support the issuing of Civil orders including ASBOs and
  the allocation of a development fund to support promising new approached to the
  community safety issues.

                                                  10
 Strengthening the Community – This strand will receive an additional boost with 3
  posts to drive the events programme and invest in sound community development for
  new and existing groups in the area. This has been recognised as a gap in supporting
  groups to think long-term and to enable them to grow and develop. The posts are
  supported by ERDF funding and include a new post of Trainee Regeneration Officer
  which provides a major opportunity for a local person to gain practical skills and
  experience in the field of regeneration in its widest sense.

 Children and young people – The newly developing Youth Forum will be a key player in a
  study to identify appropriate physical resources for young people. Funds have been
  allocated for a youth shelter or pod as a quick win, provided an appropriate site can be
  identified which has the support of young people, and other stakeholders.

 Community learning, enterprise and employment – the new Task Group will lead on four
  key objectives :

        Increasing participation and attainment in learning, especially through Information
         Communications Technology
        Improving access to employment opportunities for Seedley and Langworthy people
        Stimulating and facilitating community and social enterprise through joint work with
         SALI and Salford Community Ventures.
        Ensuring provision of quality support services for existing and new businesses

City Wide Programmes

3.7       During 200/01 the Salford Partnership produced its Community Plan which
          identifies seven inter-related themes. The Salford Partnership has asked the
          Social Inclusion and Economic Development Task Groups to take responsibility
          for progressing the priorities and targets of two of the themes.

        An inclusive City with stronger communities.
        An economically prosperous City.

3.8 The Community Plan has therefore had a strong influence on the development
    of this year’s SRB5 Citywide programmes. One of the key strategic influences
    next year will be the City’s neighbourhood renewal strategy which the Salford
    Partnership is currently preparing. Together these strategic policies will shape
    the future targeting and delivery of both Citywide SRB5 programmes.

City-wide Social Inclusion Programme 2002/03

3.9           The priorities for the 2002/03 programme are

                                                  11
        The implementation of the Community Strategy and Capacity Releasing
         Strategy, which promote citizens' participation, and involvement in decision
         making.
        The Anti-poverty and Legal Services Strategies which focus on the poorest
         in our community.
        The development of activities within these priorities that meet the needs
         of black and minority ethnic communities, including refugees and asylum
         seekers, who are often some of the most excluded in the community

 3.10         The new projects have been commissioned from appropriate providers to
              meet these clear strategic needs. There is a strong theme of partnership
              working within the projects and a focus on building on existing good practice.
              Projects will be developed in tandem with the emerging Salford
              Neighbourhood Renewal strategy, and all opportunities will be taken to
              relate the proposals in the SRB programme to this strategy as it develops.

 3.11         Much of the capacity releasing work will be managed through the Salford
              Partnership team, which ensures strong linkages to the emerging Community
              Network and the potential to promote change at the highest level. Projects
              to be funded will not only enable better quality involvement of local people in
              decision making by using appropriate methods such as participatory
              appraisal, but they will also enable more excluded groups to participate
              including older people, and black and minority ethnic communities. Activities
              will also promote changes in culture and practice in Salford Partnership
              agencies to help them empower citizens and better understand their
              perspectives.The focus of all this work is to identify good practice, develop
              the necessary skills and knowledge amongst service deliverers and to ensure
              that the needs of excluded communities are met through mainstream
              funders and funding.

3.12          The development of anti poverty initiatives also focus on the needs of black
              and minority ethnic communities, by developing welfare rights and advice
              services to meet their specific needs. New advice services will be developed
              both in minority languages and also to work specifically with Salford’s
              orthodox Jewish community The problems of debt and financial exclusion
              will be tackled by an extension of the work to support the Credit Union and
              the development of innovative work to combat debt amongst those with poor
              mental health. A new post jointly funded with the Primary Care Trust will
              develop and co-ordinate activity at a community and policy level to combat
              food poverty.

City-wide Economic Development Programme 2002/03

3.13          The priorities for the 2002/03 programme are: -

        The development of the Job Shop plus and employability initiatives
        Support to the City’s lifelong learning strategy
        Maximising the potential of the social economy

3.14          The development of the Job Shop Plus service remains a high priority as it
              underpins the City’s Employability strategy. Key activities for this year will
              be to develop and deliver an agreed Employment Plan for Salford, expand the
              services in Eccles and the Charlestown and Kersal (New Deal for
              Communities) areas, and improve the integration of multi-agency support
              services around Job Shop Plus.

3.15          The programme will continue to support the local ILM initiative which
              extends the national New Deal programme from 6 to 12 months, and extra
              resources will be invested to develop and implement local labour agreements
              with developers and employers in the City, to support Salford’s Employment
              Charter.

3.16          Research carried out during 2001/02 demonstrated the economic and social
              potential of the Social Economy in Salford. This potential has also been
              reflected in the growth seen in the activities of established agencies such
              as Salford Community Venture and the School for Social Entrepreneurs.
              SRB5 will encourage significant growth in capacity to develop this sector
              over the course of the year.

3.17 The Programme will continue to support developments emanating from the
   City’s Lifelong Learning Strategy with a particular emphasis on ICT and
   vocational skills provision.

4. 2002/03 (Year 4) Programme Risks

4.1       Significant progress has been made in the first two and a half years of the
          SRB 5 programme enabling firm foundations to be laid for the achievement of
          the programme’s objectives over the coming four years. However, this
          complex and challenging programme is not without difficulties and risks. In
          Year 4 the key risks are threefold.




F:\pdf\2c2c86b9-34df-4b45-af19-9fac611baf9d.DOC
                                                  13
              (a)           Acceleration of clearance programme

4.2       It is a Partnership priority to deliver a speedy demolition and clearance
          programme. This is essential to generate confidence in both the local
          community and with private sector investors. The implementation of the new
          Homeswap initiative will enable one of the hurdles to be overcome by providing
          a fair relocation option for owner occupiers in negative equity. However in
          order to secure the acquisition of whole terrace blocks as a pre-requisite for
          demolition, the use of CPO powers will be necessary in 2002/03. This will lead
          to delays for those areas that the powers are needed due to the requirements
          of the legal processes.

4.3       The speed of demolition is also influenced by the resources available for
          acquisition. This process is ahead of schedule as a result of additional support
          from the NWDA, and there is no backlog of acquisitions by agreement. The
          identification of additional resources is a key priority to maintain this
          progress. Additional support will be sought to meet the immediate demands of
          the acquisition, demolition and improvement programme from NWDA, Housing
          Corporation and Salford City Council.

              (b)           Staff turnover

4.4       Recruitment to fill key vacancies in the Delivery Team and some key projects
          proved to be a difficult process last year due to the buoyant employment
          situation. This remains a risk to the programme during Year 4. Measures to
          mitigate this risk include supporting the development of a range of relevant
          regeneration skills in the local community through local involvement in a wide
          range of activities (paid and unpaid), and the creation of a trainee
          regeneration post in the management team. Support from partner
          organisations would also be sought for key vacancies in addition to open
          recruitment to address the problem as it arises.

              (c)           Slippage

4.5 Whilst the Year 4 programme contains a high proportion of continuing
    projects, it is also another development year for a range of new projects
    across the three strands. It is therefore likely that slippage will occur and a
    level of over-programming has been built into the programme to reflect this
    balance. A number of projects which could be extended, should further
    slippage arise, have also been identified to address this risk.

5. PARTNERSHIP DEVELOPMENT AND MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

5.1       The Seedley and Langworthy Partnership Board undertook a self assessment
          of its operation during the year and decided to commission external support to
          address a range of organisational development issues identified. This process
          has led to a number of practical and policy changes, and an action plan for the
          development of the Board. The implementation of the action plan will continue
          into 2002/03.

5.2 At the Board’s first AGM, the Chair of the Board, Hazel Blears MP resigned
    as her new ministerial role in the Government created a conflict of interest.
    The Board members appointed Edna Robinson, Chief Executive of Salford
    Primary Care Trust as the new Partnership Board Chair.

5.3 One of the key priorities the Board has identified for 2002/03 is the need to
    review its own membership, and identify appropriate additional partners to
    join the Board to further strengthen the Partnership working.

5.4 The new guidelines to appraisal processes have been incorporated into the
    management arrangements, and an additional 16 people were trained (including
    Seedley and Langworthy residents) to strengthen the existing pool of
    appraisal panel members.

6. COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

       The programme continues to be underpinned at all levels by the involvement of
       appropriate communities. This is implemented at four broad levels:

6.1 Information – a major challenge of the Seedley and Langworthy programme has
    been the need to provide appropriate and timely information to all residents,
    businesses and stakeholders. The need to increase knowledge of the
    opportunities available, progress on the programme and difficulties being
    addressed has been recognised as a high priority, particularly in the context of
    the area frequently being portrayed in the national media by negative images.
    Considerable improvements were made this year in the quantity and quality of
    information communicated locally and nationally by the appointment of a
    Communications Officer. Further resources will be dedicated to this activity
    next year.

6.2 Consultation - every new project has demonstrated how it has consulted with
    users or residents about its particular proposal. Two major examples are the
    establishment of a homeswap working group to involve residents in the



F:\pdf\2c2c86b9-34df-4b45-af19-9fac611baf9d.DOC
                                                  15
          difficult dilemmas of implementing this key initiative, and the establishment
          of local design groups specific to the relevant streets where improvements
          are now underway, to shape the detail of those works to residents
          preferences.

6.3 Capacity Building – The SRB 5 programme is supporting both strategy
    development and a broad range of capacity building initiatives across the City.
    Some examples are detailed earlier in this Delivery Plan. The continued
    development of the capacity of community and voluntary organisations to
    contribute to decisions which affect their lives remains a priority for the SRB
    5 programme.

6.4 Empowerment – SALI Members are fully involved in all the decision making
    processes of the Seedley and Langworthy Partnership. Salford Moneyline,
    Salford First, Communities That Care and other leading initiatives are also
    strengthened by the community membership on their Boards. The number of
    projects being run by voluntary/community groups is increasing across the
    programme.

7. FORWARD STRATEGY

7.1       Sustainability issues are a high priority. In Seedley and Langworthy resources
          have been allocated to SALI to enable residents to develop the organisation in
          line with their new emerging Business Plan. Salford First, the new Community
          Housing Company has a new team in place to help deliver its housing and
          neighbourhood management role within and beyond the SRB programme period.
          The newly opened Langworthy Cornerstone has secured significant ERDF
          resources to help it realise its objective of becoming a community run and
          owned asset.

7.2 Across all three strands of the programme, attention is paid to the project
    development and appraisal process to consider forward strategy options. The
    City-wide programmes have a focus on piloting new ways of working to be
    evaluated with a view to changing the way mainstream services are delivered
    where successful approaches to problems can be demonstrated.

8. EVALUATION

8.1       A mid term evaluation will be carried out during 2002/03 to assess progress
          towards programme objectives and targets.
