Case Study

Partnership and Joint Working
Leicestershire County Council
Project Title:
Development of a Joint Resources and Waste Strategy for Leicestershire
Project Summary:

FRM provided technical advice and content for the development of a joint resources and waste strategy for Leicestershire. This entailed organising and facilitating a range of stakeholder engagement workshops, managing the strategy review process and developing draft documents including Headline Strategy, Options Appraisal, Environmental Report, Consultation Questionnaire, Non Technical (public facing) Summary document, Equality and Human Rights Impact Assessment (EHRIA).

The project involved modelling each of the 7 Districts in Leicestershire for operational, carbon and cost implications of the current and alternative options. A Life Cycle Assessment tool was applied to calculate wider environmental impacts (such as local air pollution, acidification etc.).

Each District was also provided with the modelled implications of different collection options on their budgets and net zero carbon targets.
