  • English Partnerships is keen to encourage our stakeholders and delivery partners in identifying and devising innovation when dealing with difficult problems. There is so much potential for groundbreaking innovations in LSP project, such as new construction techniques, materials and site investigation technologies. It could also mean new ways of approaching construction contracts and risk management. We should never stop exploring options that will help to save time and money, or better management methods that help us to deal with the legacy of abandoned mines. The moment we rest on our laurels is when the LSP becomes nothing more than a method of chucking money into a hole underground.
  • This afternoon we will be visiting the Northwich Mines Stabilisation Project. English Partnerships has invested £33.8M of LSP funding to remove the risk of mine collapse risk from Northwich town centre. We expect that our LSP funding will unlock £200M of private sector investment, enabling major urban regeneration and redevelopment of the town through Northwich Vision, a partnership in which English Partnerships is a key stakeholder.
  • English Partnerships insists on the highest standards of environmental sustainability. This goes beyond protecting sensitive habitats and species which may be affected by LSP projects. Wherever possible we will demand the use of sustainable modes of transport for construction materials. (picture shows rail transport infrastructure for PFA and brine at Northwich)
