Low Emission Strategies - Building on Good Practice

The LES Newsletter - 21st June 2011


Welcome to the 12th edition of the Low Emission Strategy (LES) Newsletter!

The LES work programme has moved into a new phase. Between April and September 2011, we are focussing on delivery of key projects to develop our tools and guidance. At the same time, we are reviewing how the Partnership will operate from 2012 and beyond. Your views on this are always very welcome – many thanks to those who completed our recent survey (the hamper was awarded to Cerys Williams, of East Herts Council)

We'd like to thank everyone who has subscribed to the newsletter. We hope it gives planners, developers and environmental practitioners an understanding of how LES can inform practice and policy where you are.

Local Action on Transport Emissions can save over £1 Billion

Case for Action ReportIn April, the LES Partnership and Local Government Regulation published a joint report on action taken by local authorities to address transport emissions.

The report estimated that local action on transport emissions has the potential to provide health and environmental benefits worth over £1 billion per year by 2015.

Benefits of this scale would require concerted action by many councils across the country, leading to a reduction of up to 20%
of total national transport emissions. | Read more ›
