It is more than just partnership working, it is about providing one service

Posted: 20 September 2011

In July 2007 the decision was taken for Adur and Worthing councils to work together in partnership by creating a single officer structure and providing joint, shared services to both communities.

The Adur & Worthing Partnership is proving to be a nationally significant collaboration model, the first one of its kind. A project which for 2011/2012 achieved savings of 2.3M with projected savings of 6.5M for 2012/2013.

The project involved amalgamating most services employed across both councils. This included developing one Corporate Information Team to become responsible for the Local Land and Property Gazetteer (LLPG); Geographical Information System GIS; Street Naming and Numbering and the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA).

This case study outlines how Adur and Worthing have successfully managed to achieve this large scale change with specific reference to the functions listed above; make significant financial savings and still manage to produce excellent quality LLPG data to Gold Standard, used throughout the councils and also by the wider public sector.
