Our work started with a neighbourhood walkabout. We wished to understand the neighbourhood better by walking its streets and talking to local people. We built, from scratch, a full data-set that provided an accurate neighbourhood profile as a baseline. Service provision was analysed across the area against the Norfolk Local Area Agreement and Second Public Service Agreement, local strategies and service plans.

Drawing from both the data and stakeholder analysis, we went through a process of service and problem analysis. Using the results obtained from the stages identified we worked using national evidence and knowledge of good practice to identify and appraise options for inclusion in the Neighbourhood Action Plan. Our work gained the commitment from the Chief and Assistant Chief Executive of Great Yarmouth Borough Council to this disadvantaged neighbourhood and in fully trialing the neighbourhood management method in Great Yarmouth.
