Decision details

Pride in Breckland

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To seek support for a ‘Pride in Breckland’ campaign, delivered through the Local Strategic Partnership.




1)           a pride in Breckland campaign as detailed in the Project Brief (as attached as Appendix 1of the report) be approved.


2)           the amount of £200,000 of revenue funding to support the Pride Project, be allocated as follows:


Year 1: £75,000

Year 2: £75,000

Year 3: £75,000


3)           the recruitment of a Pride Co-ordinator, as a full time post at grade funded for years 1-3, from the project allocation at (2) above be approved.


Reasons for the decision:

The Pride Campaign supports the Councils Priorities promoting cohesive and inclusive communities across the district.

Alternative options considered:

The Council is under no obligation to develop a community Pride Project; however, the Area Based Grant, albeit not ring fenced, has been allocated by Government Office to assist the Council in building stronger communities.  An opportunity exists to work with Local Strategic Partners to develop local initiatives into a district wide Pride Campaign, which would support the delivery of the County Local Area Agreement targets and the Breckland Community Strategy.
