Rural Strategy 2004

“Local authorities have a vital role as community leaders in joining up and delivering quality services. I therefore intend to look at innovative mechanisms for devolving delivery even closer to rural communities. Over the course of this year we will set up a pathfinder in each region to explore more joined-up and flexible approaches at local level in rural areas, including to join up services and funding at the point of delivery.”

(The Rt Hon Margaret Beckett, announcing the Rural Strategy on 21 July 2004)


Devolution l.jpg
Devolution

Why Carry out Pathfinders?

  • Local government partners at local level-the voluntary and community sector, social enterprises – have the skills and knowledge to better target local needs.

  • Local delivery needs to be driven locally, with best practice mainstreamed and innovation in delivery developed and owned locally to maximise impact.

    What are we talking about?

  • Building on the best mechanisms to devolve delivery as close as possible to rural communities.

    What will happen?

  • A sub-regional pathfinder will be set up to explore and test opportunities for more joined up, flexible and effective approaches to rural delivery at a local level.

  • They will be linked to second generation Local PSA targets.


Pathfinder objectives l.jpg
Pathfinder Objectives

Overall, Defra is seeking, with partners, to identify:

  • how to make delivery more effective (that is, that delivery activities and outcomes match agreed policies and resources match need);

  • how to make delivery more efficient (that is, that proportionately more resources are available to delivery); and

  • how to ensure that delivery is customer-focused (that is, the needs of customers are met rather than those of the delivery organisations).

Lancashire Pathfinder

Lancashire’s Pathfinder has identified and agreed with DEFRA three key ‘deliverables’:

  • Developing a model to ensure consistent and robust rural proofing of service delivery throughout the county linking to LPSA2 (thus rural proofing LPSA2)

  • Identifying and testing the adaptability of rural programmes to address local needs and opportunities (programme bending)

  • Exploring how customers engage with rural support mechanisms & testing ways of simplifying access

Pathfinder objectives legacy l.jpg
Pathfinder Objectives & Legacy

  • Support the objectives of Ambition Lancashire and LRRAP

  • Demonstrate the value offered from return on investment in rural areas to wider City Region

  • Secure ‘rurally proofed’ 2nd generation LPSAs

  • Demonstrate how local ownership in targeting challenges, designing and implemening solutions offers the optimal platform for sustainable development of rural areas


Outcomes of the pathfinder l.jpg
Outcomes of the Pathfinder

  • Clearer targeting to address rural social and economic disadvantage through prioritisation of available resources and better, more joined-up rural delivery;

  • Greater alignment and co-ordination of socio-economic, rural community and natural environment activity and funding to make service delivery more efficient and simpler for customers and ensure sustainable outcomes;

  • Well defined and accountable roles for delivery that are understood by sponsors and customers;

  • Clearer linkage to wider public sector investment in rural areas (e.g. education, infrastructure) with opportunities to maximise impact through co-ordination and more joined-up working between public agencies and the voluntary and community sectors;

  • Strengthening of community strategies and other sub-regional plans to provide the direction and local ownership necessary to influence the spending plans of key agencies;

  • Support in the development of rural-specific (sectoral or geographic) or rural-proofed targets that could be incorporated into Local Public Service Agreements (LPSAs);
