Key action 1b
The ESPACE Extension Action 1b will provide the baseline for subsequent case studies being developed by other ESPACE partners involved in the extension. It involves:
In terms of UK regional policy documents, Acclimatise will review the regional spatial strategies for the South East, London and either the North West or Yorkshire and Humber. The review will examine common policies in these regional plans which are derived from EU or national-level policies, as well as specific regional policies. Acclimatise is unable to review provincial plans from the Netherlands unless they are available in English (which is unlikely). Instead, we will discuss provincial plans with provincial contacts in the Netherlands provided by HCC, VROM or WSRL.
The work will involve close liaison between Acclimatise, Hampshire County Council (HCC), South East England Regional Assembly (SEERA), UK Environment Agency (EA), South East Climate Change Partnership (SECCP), Netherlands Ministry of Spatial Planning and Housing (VROM) and Waterschap Rivierenland (WSRL). It will also involve discussions with other organisations involved in ESPACE Part 1, individuals on the ESPACE Extended Partnership and additional individuals who are heavily engaged in adaptation including:
The steps in the project are:
It has been agreed with Hampshire County Council that Acclimatise will not be involved in logistics for travel, meetings and the workshop; instead, these will be undertaken by HCC.
