@DefraGovUK @DfTstats We deliver expert support to the public sector & provide confidence, capacity & capability, to make best use of resources as demands for services rise. #OurImpact on Air Quality in our 2018-19 Impact Report: https://t.co/GapmOVxZSY https://t.co/4srgL0quhp │ #AirQuality
@DefraGovUK @DfTstats We supported Leeds and Birmingham to achieve approval by #JAQU for their final business cases and the associated applications. Leeds and Birmingham are implementing their schemes which will go live in January 2020, improving the air quality in those cities
We worked with @DefraGovUK & @DfTstats on the Joint Air Quality Unit's national programme to reduce levels of NO2 in 33 areas. We provided guidance in governance, risk management, project planning, finance & procurement to councils and helped develop outline business cases
The primary source of NO2 is road traffic & concentrations build up in areas with heavy road use and congestion. We help councils develop plans to reduce polluting traffic, encourage people to walk, cycle, take public transport or use forms of transport (e.g. electric vehicles)
Air pollution is believed to be responsible for 40,000 premature deaths per year in the UK. Tackling air pollution, and thus improving air quality, is a key goal for local and central governments alike. Read about #OurImpact on air quality Thread 👇
We're delighted to have started our work with #CSR partner @S_LawrenceTrust last week. Here are some of our wonderful colleagues working with the Trust on their Communities Programme: developing young leaders and future entrepreneurs through social action projects!👏👏👏

@LGAcomms @WirralCouncil @WirralWaters On behalf of @bradfordmdc we identified council-owned sites suitable for delivery of c. 350 new homes of which 218 affordable. Further support identified council-owned sites with an estimated capacity of 370 private and affordable new homes.
@LGAcomms We enabled @WirralCouncil to secure £6m worth of HIF grant. This funding will enable the first phase of 1,106 new properties to be developed as part of the scheme at @WirralWaters. 13,500 properties are being built, making it the housing regeneration scheme in the country
@LGAcomms In Bury and Salford, we provided commercial leadership that is shaping the regeneration of two local centres. In both cases, fresh schemes have been designed and appraised with plans that will lead to capital investment in excess of £200m.
@LGAcomms We supported business case preparations for Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF) bids with capital awards amounting to £130m in Bolton & Wigan and £70m in Lincolnshire. If successful the infrastructure would enable delivery of 12,000 homes in Bolton & Wigan & 12,500 in Lincolnshire
In 2018-19, we provided delivery-focused #Housing resources to support 44 councils (including five through @LGAcomms Housing Advisers programme), two combined authorities and the Welsh Government. Here’s some examples: #OurImpact #Housing Thread 👇
