N-DEMO – New models
  • Assessed global best-practice for financing and delivering holistic sustainable regeneration
  • Community Empowerment models – community leads, owns assets
n demo decision support modeling
N-DEMO – Decision Support Modeling
  • Based on “CityGML”, a cross-domain decision support tool delivered through geospatial visualisation
  • Extensive area-wide baseline data (physical, social, economic)

local demonstration communities living sustainably
Local Demonstration - Communities Living Sustainably
  • People, Power and Possibilities Network - Bring together existing local groups and individuals with a passion for sustainability (be that food growing, energy efficiency, walking, reuse, cycling etc.) to work together to deliver their own projects, advise on the design and delivery of all other PPP projects and campaign on local sustainability issues of importance, eventually taking over the running of the programme
  • Climate Community - Take local people on a journey of discovery and realisation to uncover the possibilities that arise from the transition to a low carbon future. Eco Groups in schools, neighbourhoods, etc.
  • Your Space- Bring unused or underused open spaces and community buildings into more productive use (on a permanent or meanwhile basis) in support of other PPP projects, including providing space to support new enterprises, locations for public art, locations for community renewable energy, etc.
  • Sustainable Behaviours, Services, Incentives and Information will create the understanding, in the first instance at the level of an (Eco)Estate, what are the barriers (physical, social, service, technological, information etc.) to people adopting more sustainable behaviours (energy saving, recycling, water use, transport, supporting local shops etc.), how they could be motivated to behave more sustainably (saving money, pathway to work, peer pressure, pester pressure, social interaction etc.) and how they could be incentivised to behave more sustainably (vouchers, local currency, rent reduction, timebank credits, smart products etc.).
  • Sustainability Grid will pivot off a central Sustainability Walk from the Olympic Park Energy Centre, via the EcoHub, to the Siemen's Crystal, and building on planned sustainability investment, the grid will link the local curriculum with the local environment, display and explain local sustainability features including new demonstration projects from industry partners (from PV cells, to insulation, to SUDS schemes), highlight local growing groups, bird boxes, biodiversity etc.
  • EcoEnterprisewill begin with an EcoPossibilities awareness raising campaign to make potential local entrepreneurs aware of the opportunities from the transition to a low carbon future, partly in the form of an neighbourhood-based EcoCompetition
  • Closed-Loop Community will establish local resource collection and upcycling, targeting 80% recycling rates.
local demonstration challenged settings
Local Demonstration – challenged settings
  • Area of high flood risk at the bottom of the Lea River – flood abatement measures a priority of redesign
  • Area of high air and noise pollution
  • Derelict and unused spaces, industrial / brownfield heritage (targeted for community redesign and management)
  • Disruptive and intrusive high volume traffic, targeted for abatement measures
  • Community traditionally associated with deprivation, underemployment, social isolation, transport poverty, health issues, etc.
local demonstration sustainable regeneration
Local Demonstration – sustainable regeneration
  • £100M planned investment
  • Green infrastructure a key design priority
  • Pocket Parks, Eco-Walks, Eco-Hub, art and creativity
  • Permanent and “meanwhile” uses of derelict spaces
  • Fluvial and pluvial surface water management
  • Sustainable responses to noise, air, heat pollution
  • Strong local partnership committed to investment, innovation, and demonstration(social landlords, council, Environment Agency, business, etc.).
