Sustainable Development Partnership work programme discussion

Designing the social, physical and green infrastructure – ensuring facilities and services match our plans for economic growth

Infrastructure planningSustainable Development Partnership 21 April 2009


  • Commit resources and open doors

  • Provide challenge, leadership and strategic input

  • Bring together input and contribution of key partners

  • Ensure infrastructure work supports our key strategies – regeneration, housing, transport and planning

  • Ensure strategic links made between infrastructure work and Sustainable Community Strategy priorities and community cohesion theme

  • Problem solve, if problems arise

Key question: What can this Partnership usefully do in relation to infrastructure planning?

Infrastructure planningSustainable Development Partnership 21 April 2009


Public perceptions on likely impact of regeneration

  • Nothing in this will benefit `people like me’

  • Changes will benefit `new arrivals’ not existing residents and businesses

  • What about pressure on school places?

  • What about pressure on health facilities?

  • What about pressure on community groups?

  • What about pressure on traffic and parking?

  • What about pressure on open space?

  • What about impact on air quality and noise?

  • All combine to contribute to some `fear of change’

Community Cohesion and Infrastructure Planning

  • Against background of these public concerns, need to appreciate contribution EFFECTIVE infrastructure planning can make to community cohesion

  • `A key contributor to community cohesion is integration which is what must happen to enable new residents and existing residents to adjust to each other’ [DCLG]

  • `Ways of living together need to include:-

    - shared vision and sense of belonging

    - focus on what new and existing communities have in common, alongside recognition of value of diversity

    - strong and positive relationships between people from different backgrounds’ [DCLG]

  • Level and quality of public services and facilities is a key determinant

Statutory requirements for infrastructure planning

  • Local Development Framework must set out spatial vision, strategy and objectives for next 15 years, and do so in line with sustainable development principles and Sustainable Community Strategy priorities

  • Planning Policy Statement 12 = local authorities must demonstrate necessary social, physical and green infrastructure provided to support delivery of Core Strategy vision

  • Likely to be tested in Comprehensive Area Assessment and by Planning Inspectorate

Infrastructure planningSustainable Development Partnership 21 April 2009


What does infrastructure include?

  • Roads and other transport facilities

  • Utilities and flood defences

  • Schools and other educational facilities

  • Medical facilities

  • Open space, sporting and recreational facilities

  • Affordable housing

  • Tangible facilities & physical provision needed to support – railway tracks, pipes/cables, buildings, open spaces etc

    -Education topic paper drafted

    - Further nine papers being drafted

  • Establishing ongoing structures and mechanisms to oversee delivery of required infrastructure

  • Establishing a `virtual’ operational group to support work, with involvement across wide range of agencies

Infrastructure planningSustainable Development Partnership 21 April 2009


What should the Partnership do?

  • Help focus on Lewisham as a place and think holistically about infrastructure needs

  • Reduce duplication and associated costs

  • Adopt common assumptions about future growth (amount + location)

  • Share more information on assets, standards and strategies

  • Identify opportunities for better integrated service delivery and better use of assets

Infrastructure planningSustainable Development Partnership 21 April 2009


What should the Partnership do?

  • Monitoring progress on delivery and make strategic input when timely

  • Consider six monthly performance reports setting out progress on delivery of Infrastructure Schedule, starting October 2009

  • Identify any necessary action including any necessary additional support needed by partners where delivery off target

  • Report progress annually to LSP Board

  • Act as link officers into their organisations to help provide contacts and problem solve, if needed
