[27 OCT 98] COVENTRY CITY COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
Area Coordination Goes City-Wide

Coventry City Council's Area Coordination scheme is to be expanded across the city in a bid to deliver better services to the community.

The move was agreed by councillors at a meeting of the Community Participation Policy Team on Friday 23 October.

Cllr Lindsley Harvard, Coventry City CouncilCouncillor Lindsley Harvard, Chair of the Policy Team, said:

"This is an initiative we very much welcome. Area Coordination has proved a huge benefit to the areas of Coventry where it has been operating. By expanding the scheme we will be able to deliver better and more responsive services city-wide."

Area Coordination was first introduced in Coventry with a pilot scheme in 1992. This was extended in 1994. It currently covers six areas of the city: Wood End / Bell Green; Stoke Aldermoor / Willenhall; Canley / Tile Hill; Spon End / Radford; Hillfields and Foleshill.

Its introduction in those areas was designed to:

  • Focus on deprived neighbourhoods to tackle poverty and encourage regeneration
     
  • Empower residents through community participation
     
  • Develop local planning in response to local needs
     
  • Co-ordinate work at a local level to achieve seamless integrated services

Since its introduction more than 1,000 Coventry residents have become involved with it, over 300 actions have been successfully completed and more than 25m of external funding has been secured for work in priority areas.

The extended scheme will continue to address poverty and encourage regeneration in neighbourhoods experiencing high levels of poverty, while at the same time support partner agencies in developing and improving their community-based services in other parts of the city.
