Future Generations Bill
Summer 2014
It is the view of the Welsh Government that the foundation for moving forward
sustainably is a well-evidenced, single integrated plan for the area that clearly
1 Programme for Government p.iii See http://wales.gov.uk/about/programmeforgovernment/
SHARED PURPOSE – SHARED DELIVERY 2
reflects the needs of the local population, and that local government and partners
must focus their efforts most forcefully on early intervention and prevention, in order
to break cycles of dependency and prevent the persistence of poor outcomes from
one generation to the next.
What it looks to achieve
Blaenau Gwent Children's Grand Council
Sustainable development is when you start to develop and learn more things

Development that you can keep for a long time…

Our future…

Improving life and environment

Things that carry on into the future…

Sustainable development is a future that can’t change, in other words it’s sustainable

Making a difference by saving our environment

Sustainable development is how we will sustain our future…

It means that our world needs to be a better place in the future!

The future - as strategic leaders your role is not to see it, but to enable it
Blaenau Gwent's Single Integrated Plan
Strategic Partnership Framework
(F) TOOLS

Get the right resources in place

(G) RESOURCES

Use sustainability tools for more sustainable approaches to strategy and policy development

(E) GOVERNANCE

Ensure the Council and wider local and regional structures and governance arrangements support SD

(D) KNOW HOW

Develop key SD skills and competencies across the Authority and LSB to promote better decision making

(A) LEADERSHIP

Develop leadership on SD throughout the council and local partnerships

(B) LEARNING

Change attitudes to SD so it is the central organising principle not an 'add-on' to service delivery
(C) CULTURE

Foster respect, joint working and collaboration
Draft Sustainable Development Mainstreaming Model
To support the embedding of Sustainable Development as the central organising principle of public services in Wales.

To empower and drive positive change.

To avoid adding layers of additional bureaucracy and cost and becoming a tick box exercise.

To avoid stifling innovation and removing the flexibility from organisations to reach solutions that are best for their circumstances.

To ensure SD will have a practical effect and not simply a set of high level principles.

MECHANISM FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AT THE LOCAL LEVEL
Practical Considerations
3. Partnership planning and commissioning is evidenced
based and performance management is focused on outcomes
RBA Approach, lead to more effective planning.
SIP is a test bed for initiation.
Commissioning needs more development work



2. Align strategic planning cycle with the electoral cycle
BG Elections May 2017
Future consideration which fits current SIP timeframe

1. Simplifying existing legislation
BG SIP demonstrates.
For example:
Crime and Disorder Act 2008, Children Act 2004, Children and Young People's Plan (Wales) Regulations, NHS Wales Act 2006, Children Act (2004), Children and Families Measure (2010),

Practical Considerations
7. Strengthen accountability and scrutiny of integrated plans
Issues around accountability for those who are not devolved
For e.g. Gwent Police



6. Ensuring partnership working is subject to cross-cutting duties such as the Equalities duty
Captured by partnership support components
Regional Community Cohesion
Strategic policy development



5. Enable groups of LSBs to form ‘delivery groups’ to undertake strategic commissioning functions
Another logical step
Collaborative regional BG projects
For e.g. Hedfan, HOVEP, Vulnerability Intelligence, Safeguarding,
Making the Connections, Domestic Abuse, Welfare Reform




4. Making LSBs statutory, without additional running costs
Already beginning journey
Achievable
For e.g. effective use of partnership resource
(partnership coordination roles)

Working Age down by 900

Children down by 600

Pension Age up by 3,300


Even with growth, significant change in the population dynamics

By 2030
Affordable Housing

Water Shortage

Less children

ENERGY COSTS
Economic Inactivity

Health challenges

Unemployment

Blaenau Gwent’s Path to 2030

Declining population

Oil Crisis

Improving Education

Low skill base

Anti-social behaviour

AGEING POPULATION
Flood Risk

RECESSION

CHILD POVERTY

Increasing Recycling
