It is important that the new Sustainable Community Strategy will fit closely in terms of priorities and targets within the Essex Strategy and the LAA.
The LSP acts as an umbrella group for all the partnerships within the Borough, and is committed to co-ordinated and co-operative working to ensure that the Brentwood Borough remains a pleasant and healthy place in which to live, work and relax for the benefit of current and future generations.
