Explains about the regeneration and renaissance partnerships and how to get involved in Withernsea and South East Holderness.
Withernsea and South East Holderness Regeneration Partnership is one of several renaissance and regeneration partnerships in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
The partnership brings together people from the public, private and community sectors to work together to enhance the future prosperity of Withernsea and South East Holderness.
The partnership was formed in 2006, and aims to help secure the long-term regeneration of Withernsea and South East Holderness to enable the area to be a great place to live, visit and invest in.
Yes, there are six other regeneration partnerships in the East Riding:
The Withernsea Renaissance Plan (2011) was commissioned by the Withernsea and South East Holderness Regeneration Partnership to provide a long-term vision and framework for renaissance activities in Withernsea.
The aim is to make Withernsea a more appealing place to live, work visit and invest in.
The partnership influences supports and delivers projects which contribute towards this aim. The role of the partnership board is to have a strategic overview of the Renaissance plan. It also influences local and regional decision-making on socio-economic and environmental matters, including planning and community development:

This Plan has been produced by a team of local partners linked to Withernsea & South East Holderness Regeneration Partnership (W&SEHRP). Led by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, the partners include Withernsea Town Council, Withernsea Big Local, Withernsea High School, Shores Ltd, Seaside Radio, Job Centre Plus, Sirius BP and Humberside Police. The opportunity to produce this Plan, funded through the Community Economic Development (CED) Programme, came at a time when we need to be working together to ensure that South East Holderness has good jobs locally and is able to take advantage of the opportunities in Hull at the Green Port, through the Siemens investment:

Each year, Withernsea and South East Holderness Regeneration Partnership develops an action plan which prioritises work for the following 12 months. All actions must link to the agreed aims and objectives of the plan and each action is the responsibility of one of the partnership sub groups to deliver and report back on to the board. This plan is updated at the annual review meeting each year and then presented at the Withernsea and South East Holderness Regeneration Partnership.
The partnership also reviews the progress of its projects and programmes via an annual report. This is compiled and agreed by the management board, and then presented to the public at the partnership’s AGM:
