In 2007 pilots were run in five boroughs to test the London Energy Partnership produced training materials. These sessions gave a valuable insight into skills gaps and priorities of borough planning departments, and indicated which parts of the seminar and workshops were most useful and effective.LDA and LEP have been working in close partnership to deliver a refined training programme to nine boroughs (140 planners) with twelve more confirmed. Arrangements are being made for the remaining 12 boroughs. Feedback has been positive and constructive, with improvements made to the materials in response.
