Lord Rooker steps down as Chair of the Neighbourhood Board after three years of serving the Vale with distinction.

In 2013 Lord Rooket had a hard act to follow – building on the achievements  of Lord Corbett of Castle Vale,  who had been the  first chair of the Neighbourhod Partnership Board since 2002.

At the Board meeting held on 15th September Wendy Walsh, resident Board member thanked Lord Rooker on behalf of all residents, the wider community and partners active across Castle Vale for the leadership and support he had brought over his three year tenure as chair.   Amongst his achievements was helping to sort out a sustainable future for the Community Campus and overseeing the refreshing of the Neighbourhood Plan for Castle Vale.

Lord Rooker commented that it had been a privilege to follow on the achievements of his predecessor Lord Corbett and to fulfil the three-year commitment he had made to serving the people and communities of the Vale as chair of the Neighbourhood Partnership.

Steps are now being taken to select a similar high calibre independent chair to take forward the next phase of neighbourhood regeneration in Castle Vale. Contact on behalf of the Baord: Simon Wilson, Director of Housing and Customer Services at Castle Vale Community Housing (simon.wilson@cvch.org.uk).


Through the Neighbourhood Partnership, public service planning and delivery will be truly responsive to local needs and residents will continue to play a full and active part in driving the priorities for services.
