Essex Communities Workshop – The Power of Technology – Thursday 25 April

Posted on: April 18, 2019

On behalf of Essex Partners we would like to invite you an Essex Communities workshop on the power of technology and what this means for public services in new communities.

The Essex Communities project is collaborative initiative developed with representatives from across the public sector to encourage senior leaders within Essex to consider the impact of growth on our communities and public services.  Through a series of events we aim to encourage all public service organisations within Greater Essex to consider how they can shape the choices made in designing major new developments to:

  • have a positive impact on economic, social and health-related outcomes;
  • create opportunities to develop new models of public service delivery; and
  • help address long-term service pressures.

Supported by NESTA, the first of these events will provide a stimulating discussion on how technology might shape the planning and design of new communities, and how this might influence future lifestyles, improve outcomes and reshape the relationship between people and public services.

Senior leaders from across Essex will be joined by national experts to consider the implications of growth for public service partners, the opportunities afforded by new technologies, and the steps that we can take to maximise the economic, community and public health potential of the major new developments.

The workshop will take place on Thursday 25 April from 12:30 until 16:00 at Anglia Ruskin University (Chelmsford). You can book your place through this link:

If you have any queries or would like to find out more, please contact Alastair Gordon ([email protected]) or Sharon Spicer ([email protected]).
