The aim of this strategy is to develop a framework that is consistent in its approach in preventing, responding to and monitoring bullying across schools and the Island community

• It is recognised that a partnership is where all partners are equally important. This means mutual appreciation of each other’s roles and objectives as well as mutual acknowledgement of the constraints facing both the Statutory and the voluntary and community sector.
• The public sector acknowledges the independence and diversity of the voluntary and community sector and the Sector’s right to challenge, comment or campaign on policy and practice.
• The voluntary and community sector acknowledges the public sector’s statutory responsibilities and the constraints placed on it by central Government directives and performance indicators.
• The voluntary and community sector also recognises the decision-making role of elected members and their democratic responsibility to balance the needs of everyone on the Isle of Wight and work within the resources available.
• Both sectors will respect the confi dentiality of information, when given to it on that basis.

The Local Government White Paper “Strong and Prosperous Communities” (2006) encourages Local Authorities to involve local people in shaping and delivering local services. This includes helping local groups and organisations to deliver public and community services by transferring Council assets to community ownership.

The purpose of this Strategy is to set the course for the Island’s economy that will address our challenges and secure benefits for the Island’s communities. The South East Region has a strong regional economic strategy and framework. Our local strategy and policy framework will need to compliment this.

The Government has the objective of stimulating private sector investment to deliver the best superfast broadband network in Europe together with increased coverage across the UK by 2015. Broadband infrastructure investment is vital to supporting the government’s economic growth agenda and this includes selective investment in rural and remote locations not served by traditional market mechanisms.

An Assessment of the Economic and Environmental Impacts of the 2008 Isle of Wight Music Festival.

In April 2010 Local Authorities were required to complete a Local Economic Assessment (LEA) of their area. The aim was to provide a comprehensive picture of the local economy, pulling together a wide range of data and evidence to tell a story of place.  This guidance was revoked in July 2010, allowing local authorities greater scope to use the duty as they see fit. On this basis, the Island LEA will provide the Council and its partners with a robust analysis of local economic conditions that will be used to inform economic policies and interventions.

A voluntary corporate peer review challenge into the Isle of Wight Council’s overall leadership and governance, how it works – and its capacity to deliver and meet future challenges took place in April 2014.

The peer challenge - at the request of the council - was carried out through the Local Government Association (LGA), and was conducted by councillors and officers from other councils as well as the LGA.

The Isle of Wight Council has published the findings of a voluntary corporate peer challenge which concludes that the council has made sound progress over the last year, but that the council recognises it is in transition and is presented with significant challenges.

The team undertook a review of council documentation and carried out a four-day visit, holding focus groups and meetings with staff, senior officers, councillors and partner organisations – as well as feedback sessions.

Peer challenges are not inspections, but designed to help councils further their improvement agendas by inviting the views of a ‘critical friend’.

Report to identify what is the ‘Island Factor’: phase 1.

Three specific themes have been identified and evidenced within the research report, which add additional costs to the provision of local authority services and, therefore, impact the council’s ability to deliver effective and efficient services, through being an Island: self-sufficiency, the Island premium and dislocation.

An aspiration to see the introduction of electric cargo bike delivery services was included as part of the Isle of Wight Council’s successful Access Fund bid to the Department for Transport in 2016. Funding from the Access Fund has been earmarked to “pump prime” the introduction of such an operation on the Isle of Wight in 2019-20.

The electric cargo bike project is part of a wider ‘Cycle Service Delivery’ approach which also includes a project exploring how cycles can facilitate journeys made by organisations providing domiciliary care.

Since 2017, as part of a Department for Transport local authority funding competition, the Isle of Wight Council has been delivering the £1.8m ‘Transforming Travel on the Isle of Wight: Transition to Transformation’ programme.

The Isle of Wight Council and its partners are delivering the Transforming Travel programme between April 2017 and July
2021. The programme is delivering a range of initiatives to enable and encourage local residents and visitors to travel around the Island sustainably – by walking, cycling, car sharing and using public transport more. The 19 projects being delivered are grouped into three thematic workstreams:
 
1: Access to Visitor Experiences – targeting visitors
travelling for leisure; embedding active travel into visitor experiences and growing the visitor economy.
2: Access to Employment, Training & Skills – targeting jobseekers and people commuting to work and training;
normalising walking and cycling and transforming access
to opportunity.
3: Access to Education & Active Communities – targeting pupils and students travelling to education, and local
residents; improving the health and wellbeing of young people and families through more active travel.

This report highlights the key findings of these projects for the third and final year of the Access Fund Programme.

This is the Local Aggregate Assessment (LAA) summary for the Isle of Wight. The purpose of the LAA is to
detail the current and predicted situation on the Isle of Wight with respect to all aspects of aggregate
supply. The geology on the Isle of Wight gives rise to sharp sand and gravel and soft sand. Aggregates are
sourced from land-won resources, recycled aggregate and imports by wharves.

The IDP seeks to address what infrastructure is required where, how and when to support new growth on the Island. This addendum has been prepared to sit alongside the Infrastructure Delivery Plan 2018 (IDP). Its purpose is to update supporting evidence on the provision of strategic infrastructure needed to underpin the housing requirement set out in the Island Planning Strategy.

This study provides evidence to inform local planning and development policy, particular regarding
the provision of employment land and floorspace but also the level of housing required to support
economic growth.

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines sexual health as a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social wellbeing in relation to sexuality and not just the absence of disease, dysfunction, or infirmity1. Good sexual and reproductive health is a key Public Health priority. This joint HNA reflects the partnership between the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Public Health Teams and our commitment to collaborate to improve sexual and reproductive health across the whole system, to ensure that
our residents have access to effective, efficient, and equitable services.

The EP Scheme, which accompanies the EP Plan sets out the agreed obligations on the Council and Southern Vectis as the local commercial bus operator. It also represents the mechanism by which the commitments made in the BSIP and EP Plan are delivered ‘on the ground.’ All parties are clear about their respective obligations, and they are, as far as possible, comprehensively, accurately, and unambiguously recorded.

The EP Plan sets a high-level vision for the Island’s bus network, including journey time and reliability targets, and the plans to deliver them. It largely replicates the Isle of Wight BSIP that was published in October 2021.

The Isle of Wight Council’s Emergency Management Team has produced this guidance document1 to support developers and applicants who are required to produce and submit a Flood Warning and Evacuation Plan as part of an application or a requirement of a planning condition or planning obligation.
This guidance document is intended for use by applicants and developers of both individual properties and larger premises, and for all types of development including new build and change of use.

All students of Island Learning Centre (ILC) have Special Educational Needs (SEND) in Social and Emotional Mental Health (SEMH). Some students have Special Educational Needs in other areas in addition. A number of students have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHC Plan) but many do not. All are referred to the Island Learning Centre as they are unable to attend Mainstream school. This could be due to their Behaviour or their Medical Needs.

The independent Island living strategy concentrates on setting out our ambition for improving the housing offer for older people. While our first priority will always be to ensure people can access support at home, where this is no longer a possibility, we need to ensure we can offer alternative options that can meet changing needs and offer real choice. The strategy has very much been informed by what our residents told us during a wide scale consultation with the public, professionals, current residents of the Island’s independent living communities and developers which we undertook in 2023.

The Statement of Community Involvement (SCI) sets out how and when we will seek the views of local people, business and key organisations on local planning matters.
