1. INTRODUCTION
This Business Plan covers the period 2005-08 and provides a basis for planning and funding the future work of the Torfaen Community Safety
Partnership. This is the Community Safety Partnership‟s first Business Plan. Its purpose is to provide a cohesive framework for partnership working,
which builds on the strengths and addresses the weaknesses identified in the 2005 Audit.


Draft Business Plan 2005 –2008 for the Community Safety Partnership Torfaen incorporating Action Plan                                           2
VISION AND AIMS

Community safety concerns people‟s quality of life and describes their state of well-being and ease in their community. Community Safety
Partnerships exist to ensure that people feel safe in their local community, can live in harm ony with their neighbours, feel a sense of belonging
and can exercise their rights and responsibilities as citizens.

Community Safety Partnerships, comprising the police, local authority, local health board, fire and rescue service, housing providers, voluntary
organisations and others, were established following the 1998 Crime and Disorder Act to develop a strategy for reducing crime, disorder and
fear of crime, and for implementing it.

The mission of the Torfaen Community Safety Partnership is:
      “to provide a framework of mutual support within which the Torfaen Community Safety Strategy can be developed, implemented and
      evaluated.”

Its values applying to the fulfilment of its mission are:

        Collaboration – recognising its primary responsibility to work together to harness resources towards the improvement of community
           safety.
        Collective Responsibility - taking collective responsibility for strategy and its implementation.
        Accountability – holding member organisations accountable for appropriately representing their interests in Community Safety.

The Statutory Partnership‟s function is to develop and implement a strategy and action plan, which is set out in pages 7-23.

The 1998 Crime and Disorder Act places a Duty on the Partners individually to have due regard to the likely effect their decisions may have on
Community Safety. It also places a Duty on Partners to do all that they reasonably can to prevent Crime and disorder in the area.

Statutory guidance suggests that the work of Community Safety Partnerships should be regularly monitored and scrutinised to ensure that the partner
agencies fulfil their “Section 17” duties. In Torfaen the Housing and Community Overview and Scrutiny Committee is responsible fro scrutinising the
work of the Community Safety Partnership.2. STRUCTURES

The core members of the Statutory Partnership – the Partnership Officer Support Group – are: the Chief Superintendent „B‟ Division, the Chief
Executive, the Senior Divisional Officer, Gwent Fire and Rescue Service and the Director of Planning and Commissioning at Torfaen Local Health
Board.

The Partnership directly manages the following groups:


Draft Business Plan 2005 –2008 for the Community Safety Partnership Torfaen incorporating Action Plan                                            4
          The North and South Action Teams are sub-groups of the Community Safety Partnership (CSP), meeting every two months to discuss
           matters of local concern, focus on „hot spots‟, on problems and people, and agree practical solutions.

          The Torfaen Substance Misuse Action Team is a multi-agency advisory and consultative sub-group of the CSP, chaired by the Assistant
           Director of Social Services. Set up in April 2003 as a devolved body of the CSP, its function is to develop an Action Plan to support
           commissioning and contracting out substance misuse projects on behalf of the CSP. It has developed its one year substance misuse plan
           and is developing the three year plan that will run until 31 March 2008.

          Task and Finish Groups, set up to respond to specific concerns raised in the North and South Action Teams and in some cases raised
           by the Partnership. In December 2004 there were 6 such groups covering anti-social behaviour and targeted interventions in Penygarn
           and Trevethin, and issues in Arran Court, Monnow Court, Leadon Court, Blaenafon and Greenmeadow, Cwmbran.

The following report directly to the Community Safety Partnership

          Kaleidoscope Management Board for the Gwent wide Kaleidoscope Project, tackling substance misuse across Gwent and reporting to
           the five Community Safety Partnerships in Gwent
          The Youth Offending Team for Monmouthshire and Torfaen, a multi-agency partnership, dealing with young people who have offended
           or who are at risk of offending

The Torfaen Domestic Abuse Forum.   4. SUCCESSES
Between 2005 and 2008, the Statutory Partnership was successful in developing initiatives including:

          Protocols for joint working
          Trouble „hot‟ spots throughout the authority resolved through multi-agency problem solving groups
          Local partnerships and joint projects to address specific problems
          Measures to tackle substance misuse (through the Substance Misuse Action Team)
          Measures to tackle anti-social behaviour
          Encouraging other parts of the partnership to contribute to crime reduction

Protocols for joint working have been developed for the following:

          The Abandoned Vehicle and Vehicle Arson Policy
          Section 115 Protocol for Information Sharing
          The Housing Department and Registered Social Landlord‟s Information Sharing Protocol
          Cwmbran Shopping Centre Disorder Protocol
          The Pan Gwent Anti-Social Behaviour Order Protocol

        Councillor Referral Protocol

A register of trouble spots and issues has been developed, which provides an effective basis for the emerging POPOS programme. Resolving many
of the trouble-spots has required a multi-agency approach with adequate, timely and concentrated action to address problems arising as a result of
alcohol misuse by children, public fear of young people hanging around and littering and dumping of waste.

Considerable progress has been made in developing working partnerships, particularly at a local authority level including:

          The North and South Torfaen Action Teams, providing a sounding board for the Statutory Partnership and having a focus on Hot Spots,
           people issues, and practical solutions.
          Developing a protocol for effective joint working between local councillors and the Partnership
