Our infrastructure work boosts the capacity and capability of our clients.
Drawing on the knowledge and insights gained from projects, we work with central government departments, national agencies and local authorities to develop specialist support for a wider range of infrastructure programmes including highways maintenance, flood management and superfast broadband.
In 2018 – 19 we helped our clients achieve:
A key focus of our 2018-19 work has been to help councils and combined authorities realise their place-making ambitions to create new homes and deliver viable communities. We have helped local authorities to improve how they define their infrastructure requirements and ensure that this definition and delivery of infrastructure is integrated into the strategic planning process.
Greater Manchester Combined Authority set out an ambitious growth plan through its Spatial Framework to develop 230,000 new homes in the next 15 years. We were commissioned to review how social infrastructure is defined and delivered by the ten constituent councils.
We worked with multiple agencies and organisations across Greater Manchester examining the five key areas of Health and Social Care, Education, Leisure and Green Spaces, Culture and Public Resilience. The work provided Greater Manchester with a clear picture of where the main areas of potential challenge lay in providing the necessary social infrastructure and set out clear recommendations for how they may be addressed.

Local Partnerships’ work at Wirral has harnessed local knowledge and created a much sharper, focused approach, which is commercially aware and which will result in more homes delivered over the next five years

I have found Local Partnerships supportive and knowledgeable, particularly on the technical and financial aspects of our street lighting PFI – enabling us to make informed decisions and ensuring that we haven’t wasted effort in these areas on what is a challenging and complex contract change.
