Explains about the regeneration partnerships and how to get involved in Hornsea.
Hornsea Area Regeneration Partnership (HARP) is one of several regeneration partnerships within the East Riding of Yorkshire that support the region's market towns.
The partnership brings together a number of private, voluntary and public sector organisations who aim to develop Hornsea and its surrounding area for residents, businesses and visitors, whilst respecting the natural and built environment. The partnership aims to make Hornsea an even better place to live, learn, work, visit and invest in.
Hornsea Area Regeneration Partnership works to strengthen links within the community and has developed a long term plan to help secure the future prosperity of the Hornsea area.

The Hornsea Area Regeneration Partnership is a collaboration of people whose aim is to see the town thrive.
Partnership members are mainly unpaid individuals, business people and representatives of local organisations and community groups. The partnership is supported by an executive officer and renaissance coordinator, who are employed by East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
The Hornsea Partnership Management Committee consists of the following organisations and their representatives:
The Hornsea Masterplan (2007) was commissioned by the Hornsea Area Regeneration Partnership to provide a long-term vision and framework for re generation activities in Hornsea.
During 2013 the HARP board revisited the masterplan as it was half way through it's 10 year programme. The baseline statistics were updated and each area and themed intervention carefully assessed to bring it up to date and ensure that all aims and objectives remained relevant and achievable.
There are 7 objectives for the town:
The Partnership influences, supports and delivers projects which contribute towards these objectives. The role of the Partnership Board is to have a strategic overview of HARP actions. It also influences local and regional decision-making on socio-economic and environmental matters, including planning and community development.

Each year HARP develops an action plan which prioritises work for the following 12 months. All actions must link to the agreed aims and objectives of the masterplan and each action is the responsibility of one of the partnership sub-groups to deliver and report back to the board. This plan is updated at the annual review meeting each year and then presented at the HARP Annual General Meeting.

The Hornsea Area Regeneration Partnership (HARP) has a Board that meets once every 6-8 weeks. There are a limited number of places on the HARP Management Board and new member organisations can be voted on annually at the Annual General Meeting.
HARP has two main sub groups:
Business, Tourism & Culture focuses on the promotion and improvement of Hornsea's business, tourism and cultural offer.
Transport, Access & Open Spaces works to address access issues across Hornsea and the surrounding area and seeks to promote and improve the wide variety of open spaces across the town.
These groups meet as and when necessary to develop projects in the Action Plan and identify new projects. Time-limited project delivery teams are set up to deliver each project.
Membership of all sub-groups and project delivery teams are open to anyone who is interested.
Please contact the local renaissance coordinator for more details.
The partnership strives to be as inclusive as possible.
HARP is keen to widen its partnership so that it better represents the local community. We therefore welcome any organisations wishing to become members who would like to combine resources to further the development of Hornsea and its surrounding area, making it an even better place to live, work, visit and invest in.
