Construction : Co-ordination : Concord

Download the final report (2Mb, PDF)

The seminar was held Monday February 8th, 2010 at the Concorde Suite, Manchester International Airport to gather together stakeholders from across the Greater Manchester Area to consult as widely as possible with them and obtain their views relating to delivering and regulating building projects, as to what can additionally can be achieved in the current economic climate to minimise the impacts on Local Air Quality during the long periods when construction activity is present within neighbourhoods.

Now that the initial consultation has taken place with partners and stakeholders at the recent “Construction Co-ordination in the Environment” Seminar/Event on February 8th, all the comments and ideas from delegates are now being reviewed and considered as part of the way forward.

The intention is that the consultation will be used to provide a user friendly, menu driven web facility. It is hoped that site will help everybody access the information they need to ensure that construction sites in the Greater Manchester area are able to take into account the impact of their activities on air quality and the environment.

The consultation stage however is not yet fully completed, so additional contributions are welcomed through the blog, particularly about what sort of information you would like to see on the web pages.

We will be making the workshop summaries available soon, in the meantime view the photo gallery.
