Organisations Encouraged to Apply for
'The Regional Groups Initiative'

October 2009


The LES Partnership is launching the Regional Groups Initiative. This will provide funding and support for participating organisations to develop and implement Low Emission Strategies. Applications are invited from groups of local authorities and other organisations located broadly within the same geographical area. The Partnership Board will then select three groups to work with throughout 2010. These groups will benefit through:

  • Involvement in a national level initiative to implement Low Emission Strategies, contributing to performance indicators and targets for climate change and air quality;
  • Resourcing of £20,000 towards a ‘Regional Low Emission Champion’ to coordinate and drive through projects at a regional level; and
  • Provision of technical and strategic advice from an experienced practitioner.

Andrew Whittles of Cenex will provide the technical and strategic support. He said, “I can’t wait to get involved with this new initiative, building on the work that we’ve done so far as part of the LES Programme. I know there are some really exciting ideas out there. It will be great to be able to support organisations in making real progress towards reducing emissions.”

The closing date for applications is Friday 11th December 2009. The LES Partnership Board will then shortlist groups for interview early in January 2010, with the initiative running from February 2010 to February 2011.
