SD Panel consultation on aviation
Challenging and thought provoking are two things that spring
to mind when we look back on the responses received in the first
session of the Sustainable Development Panelâ€™s consultation
on aviation. Panel members were asked to look at information
that might be included in a booklet to be published about aviation,
and also to give their feedback on a series of policy proposals
106 members participated in the first session and many supported
the idea of a published booklet on aviation. Many members suggested
additional aspects that should be included and others recommended
further clarification on some sections. The idea of an overall
strategic approach to help gain political, business and public
buy-in at a national and international level was supported by
The Panel is now able to take part in the second session of
the consultation and we look forward to another set of responses
that are just as interesting and useful as those received in
the first. All the results will be made available for the public
to view at the end of the consultation period via the SD
The Essex Strategy - Your Essex, Your Say…
The Essex Partnership is now inviting views on various aspects
of life in Essex, including the economy, communities, children
and young people, environment and public services. All input
along with information from each of the District Partnerships
will help shape the Essex Strategy, a road map for Essex with
a clear set of priorities that reflects the aspirations for the
future of the County.
The first phase of consultation allows people to submit their
views online via the consultation
website or to request a paper
version to submit by post.
Nuclear Decommissioning engagement review completed
After our update in March,
we can now report that the review of the NDA's stakeholder engagement arrangements
has been completed.
If people wish to see the results of the review consultation
they can do so at www.nda.dialoguebydesign.net.
of the main recommendations emerging from the review was that
the local arrangements
around sites should be looked at again to establish how well they are working. The main purpose will be to clarify and help improve the relationships and communications between Site
Stakeholder Groups (SSGs) and the National Stakeholder Group, NDA and local communities. The objectives
- To review the current role, remit and objectives of the SSGs
- To revise the local arrangements for NDA stakeholder arrangements, where appropriate
- To produce revised guidance on the roles, responsibilities and operations of SSGs in order
to help them to better achieve their objectives.
The initial data gathering for this new review will be
taking place between now and November ’07. We will be sending a questionnaire
out to local and national stakeholders to find out their views.
