The Our Place! programme was set up to give communities more power over local services and budgets in their neighbourhoods, aligning these with all the other resources that communities can bring. Through Our Place! the government was encouraging communities to develop innovative ways of delivering local services and grants were made available to help communities develop their plans.
The Town Council applied for a grant and was awarded £10,000 to set up a project to expand access to arts, culture and heritage in the town. A steering group comprising of representatives from the Harpenden Society, Harpenden Photographic Society, Batford Community Action Group, 1 Life, Harpenden Public Halls, town based arts groups and the Town Council met on a regular basis from September 2014 to March 2015 to map out existing provision, consult with residents about what access they had to arts, culture and heritage and what they'd like to see in their communities.
An operational plan was drawn up which can be viewed here and further funding is being sought to progress the project.
