Consultation on draft Wellbeing Plan pdf icon PDF 143 KB

Penny Gruffydd – Sustainable Development Officer

Additional documents:



·         The draft well-being plan was published for consultation on the 21st November 2017

·         Workshops were held in June and July involving different stakeholders and community groups

·         10 themes were developed initially with 4 draft objectives being the outcome

·         Two of the themes which were discounted were Housing and City Deal.  It was felt that while the importance of each was vital to the well-being goals, there was less opportunity for collective action around these areas.  Housing was considered a theme which would be reflected in the other objectives and which has substantial legislation requiring specific individual organisations action.  The City Deal has a clear programme of delivery and governance structure in place. 

·         There was a 14 week statutory requirement with the Future Generations Commissioners office from June to October and the feedback from this has been taken into account

·         The Public Services Board does not have an engagement group and so it asked the partners involved to engage their services users/public via their existing methods to gather feedback

·         This information will come back for analysis after the 14th February and the final plan will be signed off by the 4 core members and the Partnership prior to publication

·         A process is currently being developed to respond and deal with the comments which will be fed back

·         The Panel commented that the decision to remove housing as an objective is confusing. Housing is a thread running through all themes and council stock is only a small part of housing. Collective action is available in relation to all housing including private rented, suitability of accommodation, environments around housing etc.   

·         Comments that there is little to no mention of action in the draft plan – no ownership of activities

·         Air quality improvements need to be linked in with planning processes, infrastructure and the availability of suitable public transport

·         The ‘how’ i.e. action plan is being  developed as part of the consultation period, a detailed action plan will need to be developed  after the Well-being Plan has been published outlining how the actions are delivered and the role  and responsibility of each member of the partnership in achieving the Objectives. 

·         There should be more mention of community action and encouraging neighbours to get to know each other and take part in community activities to help prevent loneliness

·         Each organisation needs to ‘buy in’ to the consultation process regarding the draft well-being plan. They need to disseminate the paper and gather feedback but there is no resource to ensure this happens

·         Once the action plan is developed as a result of the consultation process there needs to be measures and monitoring processes in place to ensure the actions are being undertaken and producing quality outcomes
