CCP ANNUAL REPORT 2010
28 Jun 2010
The CCP has launched its annual report at the partnership AGM at Archant. The report highlights an active and successful 12 month period for the City Centre Partnership (CCP) in 2009 - 10.
The City Centre Partnership Annual Report encompasses an active and successful 12 month period for Norwich city centre and the City Centre Partnership (CCP).
Importantly the partnership has made notable progress on each of its confirmed priorities, including greater engagement and cooperation between the city centre's businesses, its residents, local media, transport providers, police, and the city council. Although public-private partnerships can often be challenging, the CCP has managed to achieve a great balance between compromise and effecting positive change.
The CCP has developed a bespoke solution that best fits Norwich City Centre and continues to work on the five focuses for the CCP. The report details the activity undertaken in each focus: promotion and marketing, environment and cleanliness, safety, accessibility and membership and finance.
This year has seen the growth of several CCP core activities, including ShopNorwich, Norwichristmas and Business Pride. There has also been the development and implementation of new key projects the Alert Scheme (a business crime initiative) and the Norwich National Retail Skills Academy. The Alert scheme achieved national recognition as the CCP was the first city to be awarded the Association of Town Centre Managers (ATCM) National Business Crime Initiative (NBCI) Gold Accreditation, testament to all the hard work of all the partners involved. The CCP has gone interactive with its new www.norwichccp.co.uk website, including a member's forum, discussion section and download section for all the latest information and reports, as well as launching our new quarterly e-newsletter.

"City Centre Management is critical in building successful city centres. Businesses recognise improving the quality of the public realm is synonymous with delivering a better, more popular and more profitable trading environment. Property owners know that a better trading environment enhances the status of town centres and the demand for property. Transport Providers find that more attractive, accessible town centres strengthen our most efficient transport hubs and increases demand for modern transport systems. In fact all stakeholders benefit from a buzzing city centre. City centre management is the key to getting joined up action."
