Bringing everyone together

Co-operative Neighbourhoods is about combining our efforts to celebrate and build on what is good about our neighbourhoods and finding ways of addressing the things we want to improve.

Residents, Councillors and Council staff all share a desire for Stevenage’s neighbourhoods to be places where people want to live, work, enjoy themselves and raise a family if they choose and give them the best start in life.

Co-operative Neighbourhoods looks to make better connections between the Council, our communities and the people who live and work there. It is a partnership between the people who live here, the public and voluntary services and the businesses based in the town.

How the Co-operative Neighbourhoods teams help

The six Co-operative Neighbourhoods Teams help in the following areas:

  • Connecting staff from different services who work in the same part of Stevenage so they can provide better services to residents.
  • Responding more quickly to matters that residents are concerned about.
  • Making it easier for residents to shape the services and projects in their neighbourhood.
  • Supporting the activities of residents and communities who want to improve their neighbourhoods and create new opportunities for themselves.

To find out how to get involved and help make a difference to your neighbourhood, please see the map below to find out which team covers your area and who to contact.
