Woking's Community Strategy

The Community Strategy is about the future of Woking, based on the people of Woking's vision, and delivered through a simple concept: by all organisations in Woking agreeing on the priorities and targets to address the area's needs and tackling these together, we have the best possible chance of success.

The Strategy contains local people's key concerns and priorities. Under six broad themes it sets out a longer-term vision, describing the kind of place people want their communities to be and identify priorities for action.

This Strategy will not address all the concerns of local people or cover every aspect of the partners' work - it is intended to reflect wider Woking community aspirations that are most likely to be achieved through partners working together. The Strategy will work and come to life through individuals and organisations being at the heart of the planning process - looking at the future priorities for Woking.

The Community Strategy for Woking. A partnership approach to progress

The Community Strategy was originally put together by the Woking Local Strategic Partnership (WLSP), a group of key local organisations keen to work together to improve life for the residents of Woking. Acknowledging that they could do more together than alone, the organisations pledged a joint commitment to deliver the strategy's aims back in 2002 and they continue to work towards and monitor progress for the benefit of the Borough.

In Autumn 2008, the Woking Local Strategic Partnership and the Crime and Disorder Reduction Group agreed to merge so that joint meetings could be held under the banner of The Woking Partnership.

At present, the Partnership consists of:

  • Probation Service

  • Surrey County Council

  • Surrey Drug & Alcohol Action team

  • Surrey Fire & Rescue

  • Surrey Police

  • Surrey Police Authority

  • Surrey Primary Care Trust

  • Woking Borough Council

  • Woking Chamber

  • Woking Community Learning Partnership

  • Woking People of Faith
