Local partnerships have ‘largely failed’

    Private sector involvement in local strategic partnerships has
    largely failed, according to the chair of the economic development
    steering group at the Association of London Government.

    Gavin Moore, also a Lewisham councillor, said the private sector
    was “not interested” in LSP issues, adding that local authorities
    had shown much more commitment to them than many other public
    sector stakeholders – such as primary care trusts and the
    police.

    Pointing out that the work of LSPs, which are supposed to draw
    together public, private and community sectors, had not been helped
    by mixed messages about their purpose from central government,
    Moore called on the government to be clear about their function.
