A one day workshop for Big Local residents
At: St Philips Family Centre
(Pick up can be arranged from Burnley Manchester Road Train Station by arrangement see below for details)
Thursday October 15th 2015
10.30 am for 11 am start – to 4.00 pm Free for people who live or work in Big Local areas.
This one day workshop will focus on the important issues about delivering your Big Local Plan, how to take projects forward, what you need to think about and have in place to get started.
Many Big Local areas have recently had a Plan approved and are now at the stage of starting delivery but it is important to think about how to deliver the plan effectively, how to plan ahead, how to manage the process and what the options are about how you work with delivery partners so that you can get started quickly.
The workshop will cover issues including:
• Should we adopt commissioning or tendering approach, or do it ‘in house’ ?
• How do we write a tender or commissioning document?
• How do we get matching funding?
• What stages do projects often go through?
• How do we measure their success?
• What additional support might we need?
• What approaches have other Big Local areas adopted?
