Challenge the Council

As part of the Pioneer Places initiative we have been invited to challenge Birmingham City Council. At a recent meeting Cllr Thompson (Cabinet member) emphasised how important it was that the Council continued to be challenged around its commitment to Localisation and for the council to learn from what hasn’t worked well and how it could have been done better. 
Councillor Thompson has just set up  a Localisation Star Chamber – where service areas will present what they have been doing that contributes to the Localisation  agenda as well being challenged as to what else could be done
 Pioneer Places have been asked to  contribute into the star chamber process  with the Challenge Case Studies.

Below is a pro forma form which we have been asked to complete so bring your ideas to the meeting (we can submit more than one form – the more the merrier).

Pioneer Places – BCC CHALLENGE Case Studies

The 4 key Measures of Success as outlined in the “Working Together in Birmingham’s Neighbourhoods” Strategic Document are: –

  • Services being different, better suited to the area, and more efficient
  • Officers working for “one council”, putting shared outcomes and local places first, not their service or directorate
  • Local councillors having more influence on services
  • Residents feeling they are more in control of their services and their local area
