Smart, Sustainable Communities
Delivering sustainable community strategies to support and enhance citizens’ lives
We all live in a community, and often more than one. We have homes and families, work and leisure activities, all of which have different needs, dynamics, connectivity and perceptions.
Our strategic approach targets more sustainable futures using digital technology, data and information as an enabler of change.
Both approaches are led by the challenges we face, driven by a collective vision and based on a sound business case, along with good governance and management.
All communities live in and make use of the built and natural environment. We understand the challenges faced to deliver smart, sustainable communities in a resource constrained future and we use the information and experience from assets, estates and networks to inform decision making.
Our methodology is underpinned by stakeholder engagement and collaboration across the communities we support. Our systematic approach enables a transparent, realistic and deliverable plan to be taken forward providing us with unique insights into how we can improve and optimise the built and natural environment to the benefit of all. We measure this through the provision of a sustainable set of outcomes based on fiscal, environmental and social measures.
