General points
• Comparing surveys with service data
• Analysing and targeting individual places and
groups
• Data informing difficult financial choices
Population
• Impact on housing need – not just numbers but type and
affordability
• Population growth creates economic potential but service
pressure
• Growth in younger and older people - greater proportional
service demand
• Need to ensure 20-39 year olds can thrive in the District
Employment and growth
• Maximising potential of the professional
population
• Linking successful businesses to the community
• Involving businesses in identifying and
addressing skills gaps
• Education - Yates suite (upstairs)
Education
• Good analysis needed on timing, location and impact of new
school places
• Positive routes for less academic young people – helps to fill
skills gaps
• Tackling skills gaps across all generations
• Strengthen school/college links with local business and
communities
Health
• Greater analysis/data on specific health issues
and causes e.g. Mental Health
• Health data should inform voluntary services as
well as statutory services
• Strengthen the links between GPs and local
community initiatives
Next steps
• Draw together the comments from the active listening
sessions
• Consideration by the Strategic Partnership
• Comments used to shape the analysis, priorities and
work programme
