What is Pride in Camp Hill?
Pride in Camp Hill is a community regeneration partnership, started in 1999, which aims to deliver long term physical, social, economic and service delivery change to Camp Hill.
The aim is for Camp Hill to become a thriving, sustainable community through a series of measures, all developed with maximum community involvement.
We work in partnership with Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council, Warwickshire County Council, the Homes and Communities Agency and the residents and businesses of Camp Hill.
Pride in Camp Hill has a major programme of activity with three clear strands as follows:
Physical – the physical strand of activity involves the following:
- building new housing.
- improving existing housing.
- providing additional and improved leisure, commercial, retail and industrial developments.
- working to improve the overall physical environment of Camp Hill.
Social/Neighbourhood Co-ordination* – the social strand of activity involves the following:
- working with partner agencies (see second paragraph above) at a strategic level to become part of the corporate plans of partner and operational agencies.
- creation of a partnership commitment with local agencies ensuring a coordinated approach to service delivery.
Economic – the economic strand of activity includes the following:
- promoting training, enhancing skills and improving employment prospects.
- promoting independent advice for residents.
- promoting growth of the local economy.
- promoting community development.
*In December 2009 it was highlighted that although great inroads had been made locally a re focus on the social and economic areas would be required if Camp Hill was to be created and maintained as a sustainable and adaptable community. It was therefore agreed that the Pride in Camp Hill Management Board would look at Neighbourhood Coordination as the mechanism to bring together partners. A proposal was agreed during March 2010.
Integrating the above physical programme with social and economic activity has allowed the development and implementation of a Skills and Development Programme and Community Engagement Plan which are seen as key elements to the programmes success.
Community involvement, empowerment and consultations have been key drivers for activities. There has been regular and extensive resident consultation throughout the whole of the Camp Hill programme.
