Monmouthshire public service board welcome feedback on priorities for future generations.

Monmouthshire’s Public Service Board welcomes feedback on a number of priorities which have been identified to improve well-being in our communities and make sure that we think about the future. The Well-being Plan consultation is taking place in partnership with all public bodies in Monmouthshire and runs until 7th February 2018.

The plan has been developed to help public services work together and takes a longer-term perspective on some of the most important issues that communities have been telling us about. Across Wales organisations like local councils, health boards, police and housing associations have joined in partnership to form bodies called Public Service Boards (PSB).  Each PSB aims to improve its area’s well-being.

Monmouthshire’s Well-being Plan has been developed using feedback from communities combined with statistics and knowledge of proven practice from other areas to produce a well-being assessment that created a picture of the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being of Monmouthshire. In 2016, Monmouthshire’s PSB launched Our Monmouthshire which encouraged people of all ages to share with the PSB the best aspects of their communities and what could improve them.

Using information from the Wellbeing Assessment, PSB partners identified the future challenges and opportunities facing Monmouthshire, a Well-Being Plan was agreed and four key objectives were produced:

Chair of the Monmouthshire Public Service Board Paul Matthews said: ‘This is a call to action for you. It will be your families, your villages and towns, your loved ones that are impacted by what is done. We are asking you to join with us and make a contribution. We are asking you to offer back to your communities the things that you are uniquely placed to offer. We are asking you to join with us and help us set a path for this beautiful county as we start to think about the 22nd century. We ask of you no more than you are able and willing to offer. Together we can create the conditions for Monmouthshire to continue to be a place full of ‘sustainable, resilient communities’.

The objectives can only be achieved if public bodies work in partnership with business, the voluntary sector and the wider community. Monmouthshire PSB would like to find out how residents feel and any if they have any ideas to ensure the objectives are met. Community engagement sessions are taking place:

Engagement will take place with community groups and Town and Community Councils. For more information contact Rhian Cook rhiancookmonmouthshire.gov.uk

For residents unable to attend a drop-in session, the Well-being Plan and a short survey are available via the Monmouthshire County Council website: www.monmouthshire.gov.uk/our-monmouthshire

The PSB welcomes feedback via social media on Twitter MonmouthshireCC using #ourmonmouthshire – or the Monmouthshire Facebook account. Consultation ends Wednesday 7th February.
