Hastings and St Leonards Local Strategic Partnership
All public meetings of the council have been cancelled in response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.
In line with Government guidance we will not be holding public council meetings until further notice. This is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of residents, Councillors and officers.
Non-essential decisions will have to wait and we will continue to keep residents updated where and when urgent decisions need to be made.
On 18 March full Council agreed urgent new rules to allow the Managing Director to make emergency* and urgent** decisions when Councillors cannot meet.
Under this rule, The Managing Director must check with at least 4 members of the cabinet, one of whom must be an opposition councillor and one to be the Leader or Deputy Leader of the Council before making decisions.
*Emergencies include events covered by our Emergency Plan as well as unprecedented episodes, such as pandemics.
**Urgency means decisions essential to the Council’s operation during an emergency.
Purpose of committee
The Hastings and St Leonards Local Strategic Partnership brings together representatives from the local statutory, voluntary, community and private sectors to address key local issues, discuss strategies and initiatives and shared learning. They aim to encourage joint working and prevent 'silo working' (i.e. different agencies that share aims working in isolation). Involvement of the community is a key aspect of local strategic partnerships. You can find out more information by looking at the terms of reference of the Local Strategic Partnership.
The Hastings and St Leonards Local Strategic Partnership meets four times a year. The meetings are usually held in the Council Chamber, Muriel Matters House, Hastings and are generally open for the public to attend. Paper copies of the agenda for Hastings and St Leonards Local Strategic Partnership meetings are available on request from Democratic Services
