The Island Strategic Partnership (ISP) is the Local Strategic Partnership for the Isle of Wight. The partnership will work together to deliver the changes needed to deliver Eco island.
The ISP will be “place-shaping”. This is the responsibility of local government and partners in the public, voluntary and business sectors. It means joining local communities and leadership to influence the development of attractive, prosperous, vibrant, safe and strong communities where people want to live, work and do business.
This is a sustainable vision captured by the Eco Island approach.
Local Strategic Partnerships are non-statutory, multi-agency partnerships, which match local authority boundaries. Partnerships bring together at a local level the different parts of the public, private, community and voluntary sectors; allowing different initiatives and services to plan and align their services and resources in order to act more effectively.
By combining our efforts, the partnership and the community, working co-operatively together, will have a far greater chance of success. To achieve these improvements, the Government, the Council, the business sector and voluntary and community organisations on the Island will work together to change the ways they work, consider and re-allocate resources and 'bend' their mainstream programmes to tackle issues that really matter to local people.
As the major democratically accountable partner, the Isle of Wight Council takes the lead role in the ISP and is accountable for the success of Eco Island and the various programmes such as the Local Area Agreement that will deliver it.
