5. Letter from
Fair Share Trust:
A meeting at Park
house with Karen Dainty Community Strategy and Partnership Officer: Colin Barson,
VCAT manager: Met Dawson Regeneration Lottery: David Nunns, Trafford: Chris Anderson Head of Programs
Fair Share Trust: Apologies from Ralph Rudden,
Chair of TNP:
short the Fair Share Trust had some concerns in relation to the Neighbourhood
nomination to the Fair Share Trust Program. The fund are of the view that in
order for the program to achieve significant change in the community over ten
years there does need to be
consideration to the size, both geographically and in terms of population of the area that the funding is targeted. They would
rather we looked at a smaller area were people
will know that it was the Fair Share program that made the difference.
In a smaller area this would create a bigger impact.
LSP Board has given
the TNP until October to put a plan of action together for the board. After lengthy discussions we decided that we need support
with this and that Trafford need to give us
some money to do this properly. We need to make sure this is community lead and
that we don't let the agencies take over. VCAT is a voluntary
organisation and will facilitate this. A date as been set for the next meeting.
Lots of ideas were put forward like most people would like to look at all six areas
getting the money. Another idea was put forward that we might ask all six areas
to submit a proposal like we did for the pathfinders bid and then decide on the
best one, if we go with the latter we need to put some kind of points system in place.
There was no other business. The meeting finished at 9.00pm.
The date of the next meeting is for Wednesday 30th July 2003
at 9.30 Park House.
