CRP’s Covid-19 Response So Far

19th May 2020 / Posted by Susannah Wilks

Along with all of our partner organisations, the CRP team is now expert in working from home. CRP currently has outposts in London, Berkshire, Wales and Switzerland!

CRP has secured Covid-appropriate flexibilities from its major funders, including Defra and Innovate UK, for which we and all of our project beneficiaries are extremely grateful – thank you!

CRP’s accountable body Westminster City Council has spear-headed an IT transformation that reaches into every section of its diverse community and is enabling ever-increasing penetration rates of vital services.

CRP is working with all of its partner organisations to do everything we can to keep air clean. Everyone has benefited from the improved air quality during lockdown. We are committed to doing all we can to support a #Green Recovery, whereby health and wealth objectives are balanced in sensible ways.

To that end, CRP is supporting London Boroughs and BIDs with delivering Transport for London’s ambitious Streetspace plan, which is dedicating more road space to cyclists and pedestrians to help us all get around London.

Just last week CRP’s Mayor’s Air Quality-Funded Healthy Streets Everyday 17 Borough, Landowner and Business Improvement District partners met to co-ordinate approaches and share best practice.  One of its many interventions includes CRP setting up a ‘Hotline’ telephone service with the London Borough of Hackney, to support all London Boroughs with detailed technical advice on implementing scaled-up #SchoolStreets at pace.

As ever, if you have any requests or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Let’s all keep working together – from extremely difficult places, strong and beautiful initiatives can grow very quickly!  Susannah Wilks, CRP Director.
