The city of Nottingham is to develop a variety of schemes during 2016 and 2017 to help citizens from the suburb of Sneinton to cut their carbon emissions.
Nottingham is a partner in the REMOURBAN project, which is showing how sustainability can be integrated into the regeneration of towns and cities.
The city’s local expertise and complementary actions from a range of European partners and cities is at heart of the project’s work (link is external) to develop a model of smart urban transformation.
A number of organisations across the city are working together to deliver this, including extensive Nottingham expertise in academia, the city council, housing and energy authorities, as well as local SMEs.
Actions in Sneinton will include:
- Introducing a delivery hub for parcels, with carbon-neutral transport for the last mile, reducing air pollution in the area;
- Extending the city car club to Sneinton bringing a parking bay and electric vehicle and charging point to the area;
- Developing other low carbon transport measures;
- Testing innovative ways to fund and procure solutions which would make ultra-low energy standards achievable for more homes, without reliance on grant funding.
