Workstream The Workstream scope is as outlined in the POD
Overview The ambition of the Workstream needs to be discussed and agreed at the
Workstream meeting on 23 November. A proposed Ambition and Definition
document has been prepared to facilitate the discussion.
The Workstream now includes Waste.
Major A response to the Spending Review in the form of a Quick Wins Strategy has
been delivered and has been well received (see attached). This will also feed
Successes into the 100 Quick Wins for 3 December.
A Collaborative Education Partnership (CEP) proposal has been made to the
DfE James Review.
Due to the NIEP it has been possible to make quick progress on the Capital and
Asset Pathfinders in providing project support on behalf of CLG, including
LGI&D funded specialist support for the Wigan pathfinder.
The NIEP Conference on 28 September demonstrated CLG support for the
NIEP’s procurement improvements for the built environment.
Early contact has been made with the Member Peer and strong personal
support has been committed.
