RT @G_McNeill_WLDC Just returned home from a great event in #London marking 10 years of @LP_localgov - great to see colleagues from across the country.
@WestLindseyDC is involved with them through the partnership working by the 10 Greater Lincolnshire authorities on a growth deal.
RT @MarkLloydLGA Congrats to @LP_localgov on 10 years of great achievements
Delighted to represent 50% owner @LGAcomms and many customers, supporters and staff at this evening’s parliamentary event to mark the anniversary
Many thanks to the team for their endeavours
Here’s to the next ten 🎉
RT @steveparks Spent this evening, with @puntofisso, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the @LP_localgov on the terrace at the House of Lords. Always great to see examples of successful collaboration across the public sector
RT @WestMids5G The #WM5GDemos event gets underway today, where we’ll be showcasing some of the very best 5G has to offer. Deputy Vice-Chancellor of @MyBCU, @ProfJulianBeer, talks here about what it means to be hosting the event:
@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.

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!👏👏👏
RT @lgahousing The Housing Advisers Programme has helped hundreds of councils meet their local housing need. 🏠
It could also help your council.
You can now apply to the programme. For more information visit: https://t.co/IiqZ5pemG2#UKHousing
@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:
RT @LP_localgov We provide commercial and technical support on Re:fit programmes.
The guaranteed energy performance of these projects are forecast to deliver:
⚡ Reduced CO2 emissions in excess of 6,000 tonnes per year
⚡ £7m in energy savings or income generation
@lp_rosiepearson@AbundanceInv@BaumanInstitute The collapse of #Carillion in Jan 2018 impacted a significant number of our PFI clients.
Support continued in the 2018-19 financial year, ensuring continuity of service, replacement of shareholders and service providers as required.
