London Environment Directors' Network: working across London to influence policy and share good practice
What is LEDNet?
The London Environment Directors' Network (LEDNet) is the membership association for London’s Environment Directors, with representation from the GLA and London Councils. There are currently 29 boroughs who are members of LEDNet. ADEPT is now working more closely with LEDNet on issues of mutual interest.
What does LEDNet do?
LEDNet meets quarterly to provide a forum for Environment Directors to share learning and best practice and develop thinking on emerging policy. It is a forum for mutual support and collaboration between directors which contributes to London’s joint working. Priority topics for LEDNet are air quality, income generation and efficiencies, circular economy, digital and public realm cleanliness.
LEDNet is represented on the following pan London boards:
- RE:NEW – retrofitting project across London
- Resource Partnership Board – working to increase the recycling rate in London
- Drain London – finding ways to reduce flood risk
- Go Ultra Low City Scheme Steering Group – enabling uptake of low emission vehicles
Two London Environment Directors act as chair and deputy chair on a rotating basis. The current chair is Keith Townsend (Ealing) and the deputy chair is Dan Jones (Bromley).
The policy officer for LEDNet is Kate Hand based at London Councils. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or visit http://www.londoncouncils.gov.uk/our-key-themes/environment/london-environment-directors-network
