This included developing economic resilience strategies and action plans with the London Boroughs of Hounslow and Lambeth. Pydar St Regeneration In 2017 Cornwall Council created a £1.2billion investment fund to accelerate the delivery of new homes and enterprise growth while securing a long-term financial return that could be reinvested for social purposes. Nourish Hub In 2018 Hammersmith and Fulham Council was awarded £1.1 million from the Greater London Authority Good Growth Fund to create a new community food hub and affordable workspace in the Edward Woods estates and introduce green infrastructure and food growing spaces around the hub and in White City, linking the two estates. Independent Living Inner Circle was asked to help Essex County Council consider how it might tackle the rise in adult social care costs through developing new forms of housing for older people that retained their quality of life, dignity and sense of community. We led a process of extensive research and engagement and undertook a fundamental review of Essex County Council’s Independent Living Housing Programme. Housing Retrofit Green New Deal Inner Circle was commissioned to design a delivery programme to improve the energy efficiency, insulation and heating of around 33,000 homes across the borough. Retrofit of the social housing stock is a key component of the council’s climate action plan to achieve carbon net zero. Its Green New Deal provides a once in a generation opportunity for action to address the global climate emergency, to improve the quality of homes in Camden and to capture employment and economic benefits for a community recovering from the Covid pandemic. Faster regeneration and housing When Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council was formed in April 2019, it became one of the largest Councils in the Country. In 2021 it made a commitment to deliver 15,000 homes and transform the place into a world-class city region – and it came to us for help because of our track record for fast results via the Be First housing initiative in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. Route to Zero The council has declared a climate emergency, reflecting the fact that climate change will have direct consequences for city residents, business and public finances for decades to come. The city council asked Inner Circle to support its internal team to establish a portfolio of projects that would help reduce its carbon emissions. Regional Transport Infrastructure Inner Circle was appointed in April 2018 to set up the Strategic Transport Programme for the combined authority, to develop and approve a comprehensive £5billion portfolio of business cases while also designing the structures, processes and mechanisms needed to implement them – to an ambitious target of doubling regional gross value added by 2040.
