Abstract

Urban partnerships have emerged (as well as advertised) as a weighty vehicle for policy delivery in Britain in recent years. Despite the continuous ambiguity on what defines a partnership they have been perceived as schemes that can bring a new ‘dynamism’ to old problems and have often been effective in forging new links between existing participating sides.Hence, the principal aim of this paper that is to contribute to this area of public policy. In so doing, the paper examines partnership organisational attributes that promote collaboration and networking between participating members via the pursuit of well-being for the parties involved and their local community. The paper draws on empirical research of particular urban partnerships as they have been formulated in Bournemouth, South West of England.
