Peer-review group says #Manchester Low Carbon Hub has “low direct involvement of the citizens” #PopeStillCatholic

A group of people who came to Manchester from Italy, Spain and Netherlands have spotted that the “Low Carbon Hub” has “low direct involvement of the citizens” and “weak direct involvement of SMEs.”

Their feedback, contained in this report, which  will be discussed on Friday 6th of September at a meeting that somewhat proves their point – a members-of-the-public-are-excluded gathering at Manchester Town Hall.  MCFly has been reliably informed that the Irony Police will be in attendance to enforce this exclusion.


The team, which came to Manchester in July for an “Interreg IVC “Regions 4
Green Growth” Peer review visit to Greater Manchester” was led by representatives from Maramures region in Romania complemented by partners from; Lazio (Italy), Valencia (Spain) and Nord Brabant (Netherlands) and the Association of European Regions in Strasbourg.

UPDATE – The papers for this meeting, which you can’t attend, are now up.

    ‘Hello there’, cries a week and weary voice from across the City border……..’the AGMA Low Carbon Hub makes policy also for Tameside, Stockport, Trafford, Salford, Wigan, Bolton, Bury, Rochdale and Oldham – a point that needs to be reiterated.
    I’ve approached a number of officers and councillors in my Borough to ask about some feedback from the LCH, let alone engagement, all to no avail. So I hope your mole can leak a few more documents in the coming period.
