The Coalition Government (2010-15) marked a shift in service delivery which saw an ever-changing amount of responsibility being passed to local authorities.
With the introduction of regional mayors and, Police and Crime Commissioners, greater powers are being devolved to local areas. Local Authorities have been given the General Power of Competence, which allows them to undertake any actions which they are not specifically restricted from doing.
Brevia has supported a range of local authorities, membership organisations, and alliances with a range of services including event management, public affairs training, and campaigning support.
Some of the most dramatic effects of the Covid-19 outbreak and the response measures it demands have been on modes of transport. Airlines have been grounded, discretionary domestic travel is discouraged and the use of public transport is advised against. Instead, the Government has promoted cycling and walking as a form of safe, socially distanced travel. With the consequences of the virus expected to persist for a ‘long period of time’ transport policy is shifting to keep people moving.
It has been announced that Jacobs, a Dallas headquartered energy consulting, engineering and construction services firm, has been awarded several contracts with an estimated combined value of $25 million. The contracts were awarded by Fusion for Energy (F4E), the ITER Organization and the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) in order to support leading-edge research in fusion energy.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, EDF Energy has introduced a series of measures to ensure its employees are protected against the virus. Not only has it significantly reduced activity on its Hinkley Point C site from 4,000 to 2,000 workers, but it has also instituted extra cleaning, working from home, banning visitors, temperature checks, and bringing in more buses to allow workers to stay apart.
