Public Sector Brief: The Resource Recovery Forum

Greenwich London Borough Council is trying to win residents' support for its leisure service plans.BRACKNELL FOREST: A quarter of staff at Bracknell Forest Borough Council have said they feel more informed following a revamp of the council's internal comms strategy. Bracknell introduced a monthly newsletter, a formal team-briefing system and lunchtime networking sessions for managers after 60 per cent of staff complained they felt excluded from decision making.ENVIRONMENT AGENCY: The Resource Recovery Forum will discuss the Environment Agency's 'controversial' report on the lifecycle of nappies at a one-day conference in London on 4 July. The conference will focus on the policy implications of the study, which found that cloth and disposable nappies have an equal effect on the environment.

The authority wants to build three 'one-stop shop' leisure centres.

'The way we deliver services is going to change. We are trying to get people on board via public meetings and roadshows,' said Greenwich press officer Michael Diop.

The £20m Eltham Centre will be the first to be built, replacing Eltham Pools with a modern building boasting three swimming pools, a library and an education centre.

Similar centres will be built in Woolwich.
