Let's all pull together!

That's the rallying call from a council leader to public bodies and the private and voluntary sectors to cope with the rapid changes in Norfolk.

Breckland leader William Nunn hailed the “shared vision” contained in a new six-point document which aims to develop stronger communities, improve housing, promote a thriving economy, improve people's health, ensure services are accessible and highlight “green” strategies.

Better training, more activities for young people, using empty homes and promoting recycling are among the specific actions being looked at.

The so-called Sustainable Communities Strategy has been backed by the strategic partnership, which is made up of representatives from bodies including police, councils, health trusts and voluntary groups.

Mr Nunn - also partnership chairman - said: “Breckland has experienced rapid change over recent years and there are a number of issues facing the district today. These are so wide ranging that no single organisation can provide all the answers. The Sustainable Communities Strategy for Breckland is an important document for the district as it provides a shared vision that will guide the work of the main agencies operating in the district over the next three years.”
