A civic awards scheme and greater roles for citizens as community leaders are amongst proposals in a new inclusion strategy which is now out for consultation.
This is a positive document which calls for: “An inclusive community where everyone has the opportunity and capability to take part and contribute to community life.” Something which the Liberal Democrats are keento support and promote.
Liberal Democrat Councillor Robert Donald, Leader of St Albans City and District Council, commented: “I want our District to be an inclusive community where everyone has the opportunity and capability to take part and contribute to community life. This new strategy is trying to make this aspiration a reality so it is important that as many different sections of our community respond to this consultation as possible. We also need our many partners with whom we are seeking to work more closely together in delivering efficient services to our residents to do the same.”
The consultation on the draft inclusion strategy will run from 15 November 2010 until 7 February 2011 and will seek the views of residents and key community groups; partner organisations e.g. Councils for Voluntary Service (CVS) etc.
