Blyth Valley Council works as part of a Local Strategic Partnership to join people and organisations in a geographical area to tackle issues that matter to the local community. The key to their success is to stick to delivering shared, clearly identified, and relevant priorities.

What is a Local Strategic Partnership?

To explain the concept of an LSP we must focus upon the three issues associated with it.

1. Local-The partnership must be large enough to operate on a strategic level, yet small enough to link with the people in the local community.

2. Strategic- The partnership must think long-term about problems in the area and work with locals to decide on the main priorities and line up resources to meet them.

3. Partnership- Works to bring together local authorities.
