LES Partnership Moves into Phase Two

December 2009


With funding secured from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), Communities and Local Government (CLG) and significant financial and in-kind contributions from local authorities and Cenex, the LES Programme will move into a second phase from January 2010.

At a LES Partnership Board meeting on 10th November 2009, a new Board was elected, and the members unanimously voted John Paterson from London Borough of Greenwich as the Chair. The other organisations represented on the board are Hillingdon, Sefton, Sheffield, Wigan, Mid-Devon and Leeds Councils, and Cenex.

The headline aim for Phase Two is to ‘strengthen the impact of the LES partnership and demonstrate continued progress in helping local authorities to reduce transport emissions’. On-the-ground delivery will be focussed around three regional hubs under the Regional Groups Initiative. The Partnership will also let a contract to develop a ‘Low Emission Toolkit’, and will draft a second guidance document, with the working title of ‘Reducing emissions through procurement’.

The Phase Two Programme also includes the establishment of a ‘Low Emissions Forum’, which will hold several events throughout the year to provide opportunities for the wider Low Emissions Community to review and discuss progress on the development and delivery of Low Emission Strategies and related initiatives.
