Support for plan to make Rotherham a better place to live
Over 100 leaders from across the business, community and public sectors came together to launch the first annual plan of the Rotherham Together Partnership - a body made up of agencies including Rotherham Council, South Yorkshire Police, the NHS, South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue and representatives from the business, education, voluntary and community sectors.
The plan is based on recent research into what local people say is important to them.
Coun Chris Read, chairman of the partnership and Leader of Rotherham Council, said: “When we took to the streets last summer for the ‘Views from Rotherham’ roadshows – the biggest consultation ever carried out here – it was very clear that we all want the best for the borough.
“Those aspirations covered a range of things, from keeping children safe, making sure our streets are clean, providing opportunities for local people and restoring a sense of pride in our communities.”
