The council wants to put communities at the heart of everything it does and create more opportunities for community conversations, ensuring projects and services are delivered in collaboration with the community. The Hendon Community Partnership Board (HCPB) is being formed to help oversee, monitor, and support the council to bring forward the development of the Hendon Hub.
It will also help to identify and implement complementary community-led initiatives. The Board will work to ensure that the perspectives, views and feedback of the wider community, including residents, community groups, businesses and other stakeholders are considered and represented. The Community Partnership Board will work to establish on-going dialogue with the community through the various development stages of the Hendon Hub project. Residents on the Partnership Board will receive support from the council to ensure that they understand the role of the Board, the relevant policies and decision-making structures.
