Future North West (formerly Regional Strategy (RS2010))

Future North West: Our Shared Priorities was published in August 2010 and provides a high level statement of strategic priorities and framework for activity over the next 20 years.

This statement is based on a substantial programme of work by private, public and third sector partners from the length and breadth of the North West.  This work was originally undertaken to support the development of the North West Regional Strategy (RS2010) but now underpins Future North West.

We invited feedback and comments over a two-month period until 8th October 2010.

Future North West is based on a sound and comprehensive evidence base. It has also benefited from a sustainability assessment and an analysis of the North West's environmental limits as well as extensive stakeholder engagement and public consultation. 

We believe it provides a compelling framework for local authorities, businesses, the voluntary, community and faith sector, and government bodies to work together to deal with issues which cross local boundaries and are critical to securing a sustainable and prosperous future for the North West.

Making the North West great will depend on building on our already exemplary tradition of strong and effective partnership working. We hope that partners will therefore consider just how they can help deliver the shared priorities for the North West in the coming years.

If you have any questions, or need any further information, please contact Brenda Buckley on 01925 400279 or Future.NW@nwda.co.uk

The final version of Future North West will be published in late 2010 taking into account feedback received, recommendations from the Sustainability Assessment Report, and the outcomes of the Government's Comprehensive Spending Review.
