In 2008 the NANM led and developed a two year national programme with eleven neighbourhood management teams. Using action learning the NANM helped local teams accelerate progress in the development of neighbourhood agreements in each of the eleven neighbourhoods.
This guidance is based on the experiences of that groups and others that have developed neighbourhood agreements. It is for practitioners looking to develop a neighbourhood agreement, produced by the NANM with the Institute for Political and Economic Governance (IPEG) based at the University of Manchester on behalf of Communities and Local Government.
The guidance is resolutely practical, focusing on the How as well as the What, and consists of examples of real materials used in existing neighbourhood agreements. We developed the guide with the active involvement of people that had already developed neighbourhood agreements.
The guidance is split into six chapters. Each of which can be downloaded and viewed here:
CHAPTER 1: Introducing neighbourhood Agreements
CHAPTER 2: Getting started
CHAPTER 3: Developing the agreement
CHAPTER 4: Monitoring the agreement
CHAPTER 5: Publicising the agreement
CHAPTER 6: Evaluating the agreement
