Neighbourhood Partnership event

Edinburgh South West 'Neighbourhood Partnership (NP)' event this evening ... informal seminar looking at the future of NP operations.

I've blogged before about my frustration over the development (or lack of) NP powers ... and now, nearly two-years into their existence, we've gone through yet another budget were no new significant monies or powers were further devolved to them :-(

I've got no doubt whatsoever about senior staffs' sincerity in wanting to make them work - so do I - but unless the current Administration start showing some positive, political leadership and devolve real powers and money to them, then I fear they will simply stumble along without making the impact they potentially could.
