Norwich , SMILE

Within the CIVITAS initiative the term ‘Exploitation’ is used to describe how cities can ensure the long-term sustainability of their measure objectives. In other words, by finding ongoing sources of funding for measures, the transport benefits delivered for each city by SMILE can be made truly sustainable. In many cases the cities are already finding partners or budgets to maintain or expand their measures, but the cities may also require assistance with this activity.

Therefore in CIVITAS SMILE the Dissemination Team is assisting the five cities with their exploitation efforts by preparing an action list that can guide their work after the project is over. The action list will be prepared by reviewing the preliminary measure evaluation results in the light of a Market Area Assessment exercise that is being carried out by each city. This review will identify the opportunities for future funding or partnership working.The results of the review will be incorporated into an Exploitation Plan which will be delivered at the end of the project. Further support and assistance will provided to the cities by the Dissemination Team during the course of 2008. For example, in April 2008 a meeting was held with the measure leaders in Norwich to discuss the progress with exploitation activities in the city. More information on an exploitation training event, to be held in Tallinn on 10 June 2008, can be found can be found in the article on training in the latest CIVITAS SMILE Newsletter.
