Communities Minister Stephen Williams MP announced (on 14 April 2014) that 123 more communities will be taking control of neighbourhood schemes to boost employment, combat crime and improve the health of residents. Bexhill has been awarded one of these schemes which is being led by RVA in partnership with the Bexhill Town Team. The Our Place programme which is a neighbourhood level way of working that brings together the right people – councillors, public servants, voluntary and community organisations and the community themselves – to tackle local issues and revolutionise the way an area works. Following the success of 12 pilot areas in 2012 to 2013, the Department of Communities and Local Government made £4.3 million of funding available to support at least 100 new areas to adopt this approach, through grants, direct support and shared learning opportunities. http://mycommunityrights.org.uk/our-place
