The 2011 Budget announced that future decisions on the value of the LCF will take into account the success of Environmental Bodies (EBs) in reducing the level of unspent funds they hold.
The Government issued a challenge to EBs to reduce the level of unspent funds by 15% from the 2009/10 baseline by 31 March 2012 with a corresponding increase in project expenditure.
To help EBs in meeting this challenge, ENTRUST has invited the 130 EBs who hold most of the unspent funds to a workshop, to allow EBs to meet together in an informal setting to share and discuss ideas as to how they can practically deliver change with the minimum disruption to their operational structures.
We propose to run the workshop on 17 May 2011, starting at about 11am, followed by a buffet lunch at our offices in Leamington Spa, but this is subject to the number of responses we receive.
If you are interested in attending the seminar, please advise Helen Maccallum - firstname.lastname@example.org or 01926 488 317 by 5pm on 15 May 2011.
