                  Neighbourhood Management in Springbourne and Boscombe West Delivery Plan 2004/05
1. Introduction – the area and key issues
The NM area lies to the east of Bournemouth town centre and represents two
neighbourhoods. The area is bound to the north by the Wessex Way, to the South by the
sea, to the East by Kings Park and Shelley Park and to the west by the railway station and
Boscombe Gardens. The railway line separates Springbourne from Boscombe.

Springbourne (which forms part of the East Cliff and Springbourne ward) is a residential area,
predominantly of owner occupied housing in narrow streets. Over recent years density has
increased with the building of new social housing. The Holdenhurst Road runs east - west at
the northern edge and is a busy and rather run down road with many shops. However it does
not provide a “centre” to Springbourne.

In contrast Boscombe (almost matching the Boscombe West ward) has a lively town centre
with a range of shops in the precinct, the Sovereign Centre and a Thursday and Saturday
market. Housing in Boscombe is varied, with a range of owner occupied housing and many
private rented properties. Given the nature of the housing Boscombe in particular has a high
population turnover. The Neighbourhood Management area also has a concentration of
Houses in Multiple Occupation with over 400 known HMO‟s in the area.

In both areas, but predominantly in Boscombe, there are many drug and alcohol treatment
and rehabilitation centres. It has become both an area for successful recovery and ongoing
support and an area of drug dealing and associated anti social behaviour and crime.

New census data

The 2001 census data is now available and we have established an analysis of the data,
which matches, almost exactly, the NM boundary, using a combination of the output areas. A
full fact sheet appears in the appendices but key information is set out below.

39% of all households in the NM area rent privately, 50% are owner-occupiers and 10% rent
from the public sector.

The population of the NM area stands at 18,406 and includes c. 8,900 homes.

The census has provided us with up to date information on ethnicity, showing the following
percentages:

White British                                                                   88.6

White Irish                                                                     1.2

White Other                                                                     5.5

Indices of Deprivation 2000

National data on deprivation indices have not been updated since the last delivery plan (and
therefore do not accurately reflect new census information nor the actual NM area) and are
as follows:

 Ward            Health           Health            Income            Income            Child        Child

The updated figures with 2001 census data are due at the end of 2004.

National Evaluation Consumer Survey

The major concerns identified in the survey reflected and confirmed existing Pathfinder
concerns – litter and rubbish, drug dealing and use. Access to dentists was a new issue
raised, which we are tackling with the PCT. Perhaps the most stark concern the survey raised
was the weak networks between neighbours, in terms of knowing and supporting each other.

Key statistics, which we plan to monitor regularly as base line indicators, are:

         High turnover (23% of residents had moved within the last year and 36% within the
          last 2 years)

         Concern over drug dealing and use (64%) and 21% say this most needs improving

         Many people claimed “neighbours do not look out for each other” (40%)

         Under a third of all residents had heard of the pathfinder (29%)

              Neighbourhood Management in Springbourne and Boscombe West Delivery Plan 2004/05
Strategy and vision

The February 2004 Board away day has agreed the following vision for our pathfinder, which
drives our activities:

“We envisage a Neighbourhood which is balanced, attractive, self sufficient and
great to work in, live in and visit.
Where people are not disadvantaged relative to other residents of Bournemouth.
Where people have real aspirations and opportunities for their own future
employment, education and health.
Where residents all have decent housing standards, feel safe and have easy access
to high quality services and facilities.
Where residents are proud and confident of their neighbourhood, which can be
seen from the attitude and behaviour to cleanliness, property maintenance and
each other. “

The original and year 2 Delivery Plans established broad ranging outcomes. We are
progressing well on defining measurable and achievable targets within these outcomes:

       Better housing standards for all

       Improved environment with clean, welcoming and positive image

       Increased community safety and confidence in the neighbourhood

       Employment opportunities and access to work developed

       Child, youth and leisure opportunities for socialising established

       Improve the overall health of local people and reduce the gap between their health
        and that of other Bournemouth residents

       Increase educational involvement and attainment of local people

We chose the environment and housing as our initial priorities. These were chosen because

       They are the most visible and tangible issues and hence of most immediate concern
        to residents

       In terms of the environment in particular it is an issue that can be tackled with
        immediate results, building confidence in the programme and improving quality of life
        quickly

       In terms of housing this is one of the root causes of other problems in the area.

The section below explains how far we have progressed on these and other outcome areas.
Having made much headway with housing and the environment we are now able to prioritise
other issues, which have required more preparation in determining our response.

            Neighbourhood Management in Springbourne and Boscombe West Delivery Plan 2004/05
Our strategic approach, which we believe will enable us to achieve the above outcomes, can
be summarised as the following principles that guide our activities:

       We engage with the community and service providers to forge working partnerships
        and ensure we are jointly guided by professional and resident / service user
        experience. We strongly encourage joint working to deepen understanding and find
        solutions that address complex issues.

       We tackle immediate visible problems of concern to the community and take a long
        term strategic approach to address the underlying causes of the problems in the area

       We take seriously the mainstreaming agenda and minimise any risk that our
        interventions will only be short term. We aim to improve existing services rather than
        create new ones.

       We use data and evidence to inform and learn from our interventions – proving the
        success of pilots to enable mainstreaming. Piloting a new approach is one method of
        influencing but lobbying and campaigning are of equal importance.

       We use service agreements as a tool to establish service provider‟s commitments,
        agree and work towards joint targets, identify and work towards resident identified
        priorities.

       We commit ourselves to communicating as widely as possible, to promote ourselves
        and the area

       We take our responsibilities and accountabilities seriously

2. Progress to date

This section summarises our activities and achievements since April 2003. It follows the
content of last year‟s delivery plan worksheets, showing our achievements against our plans.
Outcome area - Housing

Our first task was to quantify the problem. We commissioned and completed a survey, which
established the number of properties in disrepair, the number of eyesores and the extent of
poor management within the HMO stock. This has informed the strategy we have now agreed
which consists of various NM funded initiatives:

         Additional enforcement activity against landlords who fail to comply with legal
          requirements

         Appointment of a Street Improvement Co-ordinator to encourage voluntary
          improvements to private sector housing, impacting on the street scene

Many of the eyesore, disrepairs and HMO non-compliances have been tackled.

The Borough‟s newly agreed private sector housing renewal strategy now clearly focuses on
the needs of the NM area.

The Housing Group has had initial discussions on a Service Agreement.

There has also been ongoing discussion about planning issues relating to density and tenure
mix, which will continue into next year. This will be related to the review of HMO standards
and the findings of the boroughs housing needs survey.


Our private sector tenants group now meets frequently and is contributing towards
discussions on the developing landlord accreditation scheme.

We have had great difficulty establishing how or whether to influence density and mix of
dwellings in the area and this issue and the tenure mix will continue to be examined.
Outcome area - Environment
A Service Agreement is almost in place. The Safe and Clean team has continued throughout
the year to deliver additional, responsive services. Our growing network of street reps
monitors this service and is supported by NM to do this. Cleanliness standards are graded
using the “Encams” gradings and are regularly B (where previously C would have been
usual).

The street reps also regularly carry out audits (e.g. gullies, street furniture), which informs
future service plans and resource allocation.
Newly appointed wardens mean that this service now covers the whole of the NM area, using
the Safe and Clean team to respond to problems they identify.

Welcome signs now greet people entering Boscombe.

             Neighbourhood Management in Springbourne and Boscombe West Delivery Plan 2004/05
The environmental and traffic audit to identify a range of proposals for traffic and pedestrian
safety is about to commence, with an approach that will involve the Council, independent
consultants and the community working together.

Several new schemes have been implemented to ease parking problems and in particular the
Churchill Gardens one-way system is now being implemented, part funded by the Council.
Outcome area - Education and Health
Our combined multi agency health and education group has focused on the problems of
young children entering school. We have identified and funded a series of identified needs:

       Nurture group within St Clements school

       Home family support worker to be shared between St Clements school and Bethany

       Provision of hot school meals in Kings Park primary

We are confident that all of these are sustainable without continued NM funding.

The results of the education transition survey have now been published and lessons learnt
can be disseminated.

Two other pieces of work are also progressing as a result of connections made by NM, which
do not require NM funding:

       Speech and language training provided by the Primary Care Trust for early years
        Special Education Needs workers

       Support for breastfeeding through peer and professional support mechanisms

Through Quick Wins we have secured playground equipment for two local primaries for more
structured activities. We have also established two homework clubs in Boscombe and
Springbourne libraries.

The issue of lack of access to NHS dental services arose from the MORI survey and has been
raised with the PCT and their developing dental plan recognises this as a major issue.

The group are now focusing on the >11 age group with an audit of all available data being
put together from Education, Health and Connexions.
Outcome area - Community Safety
The police led Community Safety Action Group has met regularly through the year and began
discussions on a Service Agreement. A seminar at the end of January ensured consultation
with and “buy in” from residents and a range of agencies in the area. Our Home Office
funded officer will be able to take this agenda forward next year. The seminar established a
clear action plan, with four priority areas identified:

       Drugs, with a specific focus around engaging recovering addicts



                                                   7
            Neighbourhood Management in Springbourne and Boscombe West Delivery Plan 2004/05
       Community Involvement, with a specific focus around information sharing and public
        perception of the area

       Housing and the Environment, with a specific focus around dealing with HMOs,
        abandoned vehicles and graffiti

       Prostitution

The seminar also provided a model approach to gaining commitment from a range of
agencies and the community and we plan to use this approach for other theme areas next
year.

A pooled budget from NM, Police, Fire and Council, now exists to remove communal vehicles.

The NM area is the one area in Bournemouth where crime levels are dropping, due in the
main to targeted Police activity on drug dealing.

A video on “Living Safely” is being produced with a range of agencies inputting.

The Safer Streets Initiative has surveyed residents in two streets identifying crime and
security concerns which the CSAG are tasked with responding to. Residents were trained to
carry out the survey and worked closely with the Police and Council to gather and analyse the
data.

We have supported the community based Crime Prevention Panel which is now a strong
organisation able to deliver projects contributing to community safety and public reassurance.
Outcome area - Employment

The health and education group has identified getting vulnerable adults into work as a
priority. Statistics quantifying the problem are still outstanding and Job Centreplus has been
tasked with providing robust post-coded data. Without this it will be difficult to target our
work. Four themes emerged at the multi agency problem-solving day: alternative forms of
employment; employers changing recruitment and employment practices; the benefits to
work transition; access to training / volunteering.

In response to this we have agreed funding for a feasibility study into Clouds Working
Recovery (a local addiction treatment service) establishing a “social firm”. However, so far
within our programme employment has not been prioritised and we have not yet established
a group for tackling this issue.

Outcome area – youth and leisure opportunities
The lack of youth provision, highlighted in the original delivery plan, has continued to be of
concern and we have lobbied the Youth Service on this issue as well as working with
voluntary sector providers. Our Youth Action Group are researching needs through the local
secondary schools.



                                                   8
            Neighbourhood Management in Springbourne and Boscombe West Delivery Plan 2004/05
We have commissioned feasibilities into two buildings in Springbourne, which we believe
could provide community facilities – the unused half of the Springbourne library and the
redundant St Mary‟s Church.

Our sports trailer is now in operation – being run by leisure Services with local people being
trained up to take it out more frequently to community groups next summer.

Cross cutting - Image

We have attempted to change the image of the NM area by employing a PR company to
promote positive stories of NM and the area in the press, TV and radio. Results have been
regular stories in the Daily Echo as well as weekly contributions to their local news columns.
Local radio and TV regularly feature our stories and the “Back off Boscombe” campaign at
“2CRFM” has stopped the derogatory comments about the area reaching the ears of 000‟s of
listeners. Moving from PR to marketing the area will be a priority for next year.

Cross cutting - Private sector
Our PR consultants have acted as a DIY Business Broker. Using their existing links to major
firms and the Dorset and Bournemouth Chambers they are developing links between local
voluntary and community groups (through the Council for Voluntary Services) and the
business sector. Our current Business Board rep is currently vacant but this place signals the
close links we have with the private sector.

Substantial effort on the part of the Community Involvement Officer has resulted in a thriving
Boscombe Traders Group whose achievements to date include:

       A Small Retailers Initiative to establish Boscombe Retailers Against Crime – a data
        sharing protocol with a computer based backup

       A Safe Child Scheme within the Boscombe precinct and Sovereign Shopping Centre

       A commitment to start Sunday trading in the form of a Farmers/Craft market in the
        precinct area

       A commitment to explore the possibility of having a Boscombe Town Centre Manager

Developing a similar structure in Springbourne, using the newly appointed wardens will be a
focus for next year.
Cross cutting - Community Engagement
This year saw our first elections for 4 resident Board members. Seven stood for four places
and 25% of our registered voters returned their ballot papers. This excellent level of interest
(given that only 29% had heard of NM in February) gives the board credibility and support.
The election process focused our minds on promoting NM and reaching the public in a variety
of ways – press articles, radio interviews, advertising at the Post Office and on the back of



                                                  9
           Neighbourhood Management in Springbourne and Boscombe West Delivery Plan 2004/05
buses, stalls in the shopping precinct and at local fairs over summer as well as the usual
newsletter and posters.


A Tenants Forum now meets six weekly addressing a number of issues and may develop into
an independent group run by and for tenants.


Contact has been established with Wessex Disability who are now actively engaged in the
Street Reps Meetings and the Environment Group, representing the needs of people with
disabilities locally.


The Youth Action Group meet every fortnight and are actively engaged in discussing issues
that are relevant to the area. Early in this next year they will consult within secondary
schools to identify local needs.


The 50+ Forum has been established as a strategic steering group for older people‟s issues, a
topic based agenda has been devised for this year to discuss, health, lifelong learning, social
activities, housing, employment etc. Age Concern Bournemouth is working with NM to
provide „Voices‟ training to people aged 50+ to establish a social/discussion forum for those
living locally.


NM representatives have now made two visits to the Mosque, and the need for community
development work in Boscombe West and Springbourne for this group has been discussed.
The Muslim community would like to build or buy a community and youth centre in the area.


NM has funded a feasibility study by Dorset African Caribbean Association (DACA) to look into
the needs of the significant African Caribbean community locally, with the possibility of a
drop-in centre being set up locally.


Dorset Race Equality Council is in contact with NM providing links and information into other
BME groups locally.


Street Reps who continue to monitor the Safe and Clean project are to receive robust training
through ENCAMs to support their efforts, and a major publicity campaign early in the year
should attract further voluntary support to this group. There is an opportunity for the Street
Reps to become involved in the Environmental Audit and a number of other consultation/
information distribution initiatives.

Cross cutting - Joint working

We have established a number of structures to link service providers and locate services in
the neighbourhood, as follows:




                                                   10
             Neighbourhood Management in Springbourne and Boscombe West Delivery Plan 2004/05
       A bi monthly “On the Ground Workers” meeting has been established for all staff who
        work on the patch and directly with the public

       The Healthy Living Centre are now located in our offices and the Police, Shelter,
        College and CAB, Pensions Service run regular surgeries

       Our groups and the developing Service Agreements are multi agency



Cross cutting - Raising the profile


Moving in to the NM office on the patch has made NM much more visible. Stalls at community
fairs over summer, stalls in the shopping centre, our high profile election campaign (using
radio, TV, press, bus advertising, Post Office advertising) has resulted in much greater
awareness of NM in the community. Bi - monthly newsletters are delivered to every
household.

In terms of engaging service providers we have focused in particular on our profile within the
Council, given the new administration (May 2003) and Chief Executive (August 2003), for
example inviting the Cabinet, local ward members and the Chief Exec to meet the Board on a
number of occasions.

We made a presentation to the Bournemouth Partnership (LSP) and are a key member of its
developing Communities Tackling Crime Forum and its local Community Safety Action Group.
Cross cutting - Community confidence
Providing one off grants and responding to issues of concern that can be resolved quickly are
key to building community confidence.

The list at Appendix D shows the Community Wins we have granted this year.

       In addition we have responded to a range of issues raise by the community, for
        example: developing ideas to upgrade the bus station and securing resources from
        Marks and Spencers to fund this

       developing plans to prevent anti social behaviour on The Crescent for next summer
        by providing entertainment, making physical changes and increasing enforcement
        activity.
Cross cutting - Baseline
Weaknesses in our baseline information and consequently target setting were identified
through the Performance Management process. A new appointment of Service Development
Officer seconded from the local authority has now begun to address this issue and work will
be complete towards the end of this (financial) year. The greatest difficulties are with health
and employment statistics for the neighbourhood. Progress is now being made with our
education baseline and work on employment / claimant figures for the area are being

                                                   11
             Neighbourhood Management in Springbourne and Boscombe West Delivery Plan 2004/05
progressed. The priority after that will be health. Appendix A shows a template for baseline
and target data. Not all the data is yet available but the template shows what we will collect
and monitor through the course of the programme.
Cross cutting - Evaluation
We have appointed independent evaluators whose brief is to:

        Track changes in satisfaction with services and the area

        Evaluate our effectiveness in community engagements

        Evaluate the effectiveness of our mainstreaming

        Provide an advisory role on leverage spend

        Assist in establishing a comprehensive baseline and meaningful targets

Their work will complement the national evaluation and enable us to learn from our ongoing
activities.

Cross cutting - Mainstreaming
Our significant achievement this year has been the adoption by the Borough of a Private
Sector Housing Renewal Strategy that clearly recognises the needs of the NM area and
reflects these needs in its priorities and resource allocation.


Other examples include:


        The agreement of a one way scheme around Churchill Gardens with the Borough

        The running of the NM funded Mobile Sports trailer by Leisure Services department
         as an integral part of their local service.


        The adoption by Cleansing and Waste of elements of the NM Safe and Clean scheme
         in another part of the borough.


        The commitment to sustain many initiatives initially funded by NM, such as the
         Nurture Group and Home School Support worker, wardens

Other initiatives
Inevitably issues have arisen through the year that we have become involved in which were
not predicted in last years delivery plan.


We have continued our discussions with Supporting People about the effect of the provision
within the area. We now have a commitment to enable residents groups to have some input
to contract monitoring.

The NM Boards views have been sought on a number of major issues within the area, e.g.
the development of the Pier and seafront area and the Football Foundation bid for new
facilities at Kings Park.

3. Next 12 months

Compared to the beginning of the last year we are now more firmly established with service
providers and the community and delivering a range of initiatives, through partner agencies.

Having a new administration provides us with a clear opportunity. The new Chief Exec of the
Council has also shown considerable interest in our work and learning the lessons borough
wide.
We have made headway in achieving outcomes on housing and the environment and to some
extent education. Community Safety, Employment and Health have not yet been addressed
with the same focus. Our away day established priorities for next year within and between
theme areas and these are summarised below then explained in more detail in the following
pages.

Our new priorities for the forthcoming year are Community Safety and Education. The need
to develop closer links with the recovering community is crucial and will enable us to develop
interventions around employment, possibly for implementation in year 4.

In addition the implementation of our housing and environment programmes are of great
importance but require less developmental work.

Our analysis of health needs must continue so that we can identify interventions for future
years.

Housing
Raising the physical standards of properties is our key priority within this theme,
in particular to increase the number of homes achieving the decent homes
standard. With the appointment of the street improvement co-ordinator we have started to
address the problem of the visual impact of properties identified last year in our survey. We
will begin to see real changes as a result of this work. We will also begin to develop much
closer relationships with owners, landlords and tenants enabling us to target advice and
information. This in turn will lead over a longer period to the improvement of standards and
housing quality.

Promoting the accreditation scheme (which should be operational by April 2004), reviewing
HMO standards and maintaining enhanced enforcement levels will also be tasks for the year,
which again will feed in to the longer-term improvements in standards.
Environment

The group will continue to develop and implement ideas on education to encourage people to
make good use of and look after their environment, including enhancing recycling (possibly
linked to employment opportunities). Mainstreaming Safe and Clean, currently 100% NM
funded, is also a key target. Transport will be a key focus for the year, linked to the audit

           Neighbourhood Management in Springbourne and Boscombe West Delivery Plan 2004/05
that will take place in the first quarter of the year. This group will champion the
business broker / town centre management approach as a key priority this year
given the importance of the Boscombe Town centre to the success of the area. In
the longer term the implementation of the recommendations from the audit and ensuring the
sustainability of the current levels of cleanliness are key goals.

Health

Access to NHS dental services and indeed other primary care services were highlighted as
issues at the away day. Until our baseline assessment is updated and priority areas have
been identified, targets cannot be set. This will be established during the first quarter of the
year with input and guidance from GOSW and our evaluators.
A general issue of the need to raise self-esteem and psychological well being, of individuals
and the community, has also been identified as a priority.

Education
The group have begun to focus on the >11 age group although priorities for intervention
have yet to develop. However there are indications from early discussions that developing
work related curriculum and opportunities, out of hours and family learning are areas NM
needs to explore. Developing interventions to provide relevant opportunities and
raise attainment for the secondary school / into work age group will be a key
priority for this forthcoming year, obviously informed by the baseline data schools are
currently providing us with.
Community Safety
Our newly appointed GOSW funded crime and drugs worker provides an opportunity to drive
forward this area of work. Drugs are the biggest concern in the neighbourhood and the
underlying cause of many of the area‟s ills. Disrupting the drugs market, ensuring the success
of people post treatment and assisting those in recovery into work will be priorities. We will
develop a co-ordinated local approach to enforcement, treatment and after -care
support and environmental measures to tackle this issue. We are also keen to forge
an understanding between the non-drug using community and those in recovery. Prostitution
is another area to be tackled through the Community Safety Action Group, identified at the
joint seminar as a major concern.

Employment

Our key priority for the forthcoming year will be to focus on vulnerable adults (e.g. mental
health service users, those in recovery) and we will have to agree on a mechanism to
examine these issues – establishing another group being the likely scenario. Closer links
with the recovering community will help us identify necessary interventions. We
will need to maximise take up of the many existing opportunities for training and develop
more opportunities for volunteering and employment using our growing links with business.

            Neighbourhood Management in Springbourne and Boscombe West Delivery Plan 2004/05
Once again, gathering post-coded baseline data will enable us to clearly target our
interventions. Current data on those signing on as unemployed at the Job Centre is
inadequate and a full analysis of all benefits claimed is now underway.

Youth and leisure opportunities

We are confident that this year will see the building of a “state of the art” skate park in Kings
Park and NM will make a significant be contribution to this. We are however aware that this
area still lacks adequate youth provision and we will work closely with youth services to
increase provision – our community radio project being one example. The St Mary‟s Church
development will, if successful, provide a community facility in Springbourne, as will the
opening up of the unused half of Springbourne library. We will remain involved in other
developments in the area which will also add to provision for young people (Muslim
community centre, new Sea Scouts building, Wellspring Project at St Georges, possible
relocation of the climbing wall, AFC Bournemouth‟s community centre) We will actively
support those schemes where the Board agrees. This will assist in the delivery of our
outcomes. The development of the athletics stadium and the football foundation funded
facilities in Kings Park provide major opportunities and NM will endeavour to ensure these are
accessed widely.

Cross cutting themes

We have made major progress in all of these areas. The detail is set out in the worksheet but
priorities for the year ahead are;

       To start marketing the area and its opportunities

       To draw more and diverse groups into our work

       To ensure our interventions and lobbying result in long-term service improvements,

Processes and activity types

The Pathfinder‟s activities have and will continue to cover the full range of activity types
identified by the NRU for the success of neighbourhood management. An analysis of activity
types appears below and highlights where we may need to refocus our attention.

This analysis shows that our activities span the full range, however our campaigning and
lobbying activities are less strong. In terms of impact, changes to services are only slowly
beginning to emerge. As we continue to develop SLAs it will become more apparent the
extent to which they are a real tool in achieving service changes. Piloting new services is, at
the moment, the main way in which we are bringing about service changes.

Baseline / targets and outcomes

This area was exposed as being weak during the Performance Management process. Despite
having been identified as a priority for year 2 the lack of staff resources to focus on this area
meant that little progress was made during the first three quarters of the year. A secondee is
now in place and is compiling comprehensive baseline data for our key areas. Our newly
appointed evaluators are also identifying gaps in the baseline and recommending how these
can be filled. They will support the secondee in developing clear targets for our outcome
areas and key performance indicators. An education NRA has also provided a framework for
tracking attainment through school years and the schools are working with us on providing
this data. The 2001 census data is also now available and we are able, as shown in tables in
the first section, to produce reports, which match almost exactly the NM area. The population
turnover research will provide further understanding of local data. 23% of the population
moved the year previous to the MORI survey and this has enormous impact on our baseline
monitoring.

This will mean that from early 2004 and then throughout the programme we will be able to
more clearly monitor the impact of our interventions and target our work towards agreed
priority issues.

The summarised schedule of activity and spend for next, and future, years appear in
appendix F.

4. Longer term overview

Some existing interventions will continue to be delivered into year 4 e.g. wardens, street
improvement co-coordinator and home school support.

The emphasis in the middle and later years of the Pathfinder will be on ensuring sustainability
of existing interventions.

In terms of mainstreaming, many commitments to sustain current interventions are already in
place, for example we are confident that the pupil family support worker and nurture group
will become permanent features funded within schools‟ budgets. Similarly the local authority
has given a general commitment to sustaining a warden service.

Some considerable effort will though need to be put into mainstreaming during years 3, 4
and 5, for example the NM funded housing enforcement activity and in particular the NM
funded Safe and Clean service.

Some new interventions are still to be developed in year 3 and these may run into years 4 to
5. For example our employment theme is only just taking off and there are developing ideas
around getting vulnerable adults into work. An intervention focused on mental health service
users in being discussed in the Health and Education group. Similarly that group is developing
ideas around work with young people in relation to education, aspirations, attainment and
training. The work of the Home Office secondee, focussing on drugs and crime issues, may
result in some new interventions being developed.

However, in identifying where services need to change the use of leverage funding is only
one element and we will continue to encourage service changes that do not require NM
resources. The development of Service Agreements will be a key mechanism for delivering
this area of work.

We are now better resourced, in terms of staffing, to be able to monitor the effect and
impact of our existing interventions and along with our local evaluation team will be learning
and disseminating the learning from our interventions in future years.

We are also confident that we have a robust baseline in place and clear targets that can be
tracked in the following years.

                                                 Pathfinder Lifespan




During year 3 we will begin to consider succession strategy, meaning how the NM approach
can be sustained beyond NRU funding. We will explore models of community development
trusts and link in with ongoing discussions in the local authority about local service delivery
and decision-making. We will involve SRB and Healthy Living Centre in these discussions, as it
is important that their successes are also sustained. We anticipate that during year 4 and 5
there will be considerable focus on this area of work.

In summary we will move from the early years of set up, research and development (years 1
and 2) into delivery (years 2, 3 and 4) and then on to learning and applying lessons and
securing a future for the approach (years 3 and 4 onwards).

6. Development of the partnership
We believe that the basic structure of our partnership is sound. However there are a few
areas where some development is needed:

       Co-options. In order to better reflect the community it serves the Board has
        recently discussed the need for co-optees. It is therefore likely to expand in number
        by appointing up to 3 co-optees.

       Key officers. This group met infrequently during the first half of 2003/04.
        Membership fluctuated, was sometimes not senior enough and often duplicated
        attendance at our Groups. This Key Officer group therefore needs reviewing so that it
        has a clear and focused role and relevant membership.

       Employment theme. If we are to pursue this area of work we will need a structure
        to take this forward.

       Community sounding board. The delivery plan away day identified the need for a
        mid year away day to review progress. In addition a “community sounding board”
        annual meeting would provide broader formal feedback to our planning process,
        involving local “activists” involved in NM, if not part of our main structures.

       Joint seminars. Learning from the success of the CSAG seminar we will use this
        approach on a number of issues throughout the year.

We continue to work closely with SRB and HLC. All managers meet regularly, some Board
members sit on two Boards and observers sit on each other‟s Boards. Our joint away day in
March identified areas where closer working can be achieved and this will be progressed
through the year. In particular, the need for a joint succession strategy was highlighted and
will be developed through the year.

 NM baseline and floor targets
The floor targets represent both central and local government targets. Central government
targets may not have an appropriate baseline accompanying them as we are still in the
process of gathering data. Likewise the data in the baseline may not directly correspond to a
floor target but it is important in understanding the local issues and problems in the NM area.
It is important to understand that we are still awaiting some data and the data collection will
continue over the coming months.

                               Census Fact Sheet for NM Area


The area has a resident population of 18,406 and an average household size of 1.9, smaller
than the Borough figure of 2.1. The area has a smaller under 18 population and a much
larger 18-44 year old population than the comparison areas. Although the non-white
population is smaller than for England and Wales as a whole, within the Borough it is one of
the more ethnically diverse areas.


Unemployment is higher than the Borough as a whole as well as the comparison areas.


Owner occupation is lower in this area than in Bournemouth but the area has a large private
rental sector. The majority of accommodation is in either purpose built converted flats or
bedsits.


There are fewer households with dependent children than in other areas and a significant
proportion of households lacking or sharing facilities. Around 37% of households are without
a car, which is significantly higher than local or national figures. The percentage of
households that are considered to be living in overcrowded conditions is three times that of
England and Wales.


There are more people employed in hotels and catering than in the Borough as a whole and
more people employed in financial intermediation than in England and Wales.

Key indicators
Below are statistics that will be important indicators of the overall success of the NM programme, not related to specific theme areas.


Turnover
MORI 23% moved in last year
Potential target – reduced turnover
Need to identify the number of properties where high turnover is inevitable e.g. short term-supported housing.
Our turnover research will deepen our understanding of this issue and enable us to impact on current turnover rates
Image of the area
Reputation – need to develop an indicator, ideally using the Borough‟s Citizen Panel – and track this annually or bi-annually
Need indicator around community safety / confidence – to be integrated into our own local evaluation survey to be tracked annually or bi-annually.
Profile
29% aware of NM (MORI poll)
Economic success
Numbers of empty shops within Boscombe shopping centre
To be tracked by Boscombe Traders Group
