Neighbourhood Action gives residents and councillors the opportunity to work more closely together in identifying issues or problems in a ward. A steering group is set up which allows local issues to be tackled in partnership. A typical group will be made up of councillors, council officers, local residents, police and other agencies.
The wide expertise and depth of local knowledge in the group means that it is able to address problems and find effective solutions that will work for the area.
If you would like to be more involved in what happens in your area, why not join your local steering group and make a difference. For more information, get in touch with us using the contact details at the bottom of the page.
There are five Neighbourhood Action Groups in Dacorum:
Residents completed 88 surveys across all five Neighbourhood Action areas between September and October 2016. The report is based on the views of the people who completed the survey and does not represent the views of wider individual neighbourhood communities.

The Neighbourhood Action team works closely with Youth Connexions, local schools and the community and voluntary sector to maximise opportunities for young people to get more involved in decision making.
Street Champions are volunteers who act as the ‘eyes and ears’ of the community to improve their local area. They can also act as community organisers, helping to motivate and encourage fellow residents to get involved in community events.
The sooner a problem is reported, the sooner it can be resolved. As a Street Champion, you will be helping us to remedy problems quickly by getting the information to us. The scheme is entirely voluntary and you can do as much or as little as you like.
Working with faith and cultural groups
The Neighbourhood Action team is committed to working with faith and cultural groups in Dacorum and will promote integration in and between these groups. New structures are being put in place to work with these groups and ensure that their views are incorporated in Neighbourhood Action plans.
