Knowledge Hub: the LGA’s antisocial media

Last week, I joined the Knowledge Hub, the successor to the Local Government Group’s LACORS website. I was also persuaded to join Twitter, and am now tweeting @garethsimkins.

LACORS – once the Local Government Coordinator of Regulatory Services, then more blandly LGReg – was a source of information and guidance on the various enforcement activities performed by councils. It was consulted regularly by ENDS, but fell victim to government funding cuts. It was absorbed as a ‘regulatory support unit’ within the Local Government Association last year and the LACORS site is no longer being updated.



Sometimes a tweet can say it all

At ENDS we are used to condensing heavyweight documents and complex situations into far more digestible material. But I doubt we have ever managed to reduce anything to a mere 22 words.

Simon Birkett, who heads the Campaign for Clean Air in London, managed to do just this on 23 February, in a post on microblogging website Twitter:

Hope @JanezPotocnikEU has seen Marylebone Rd already shows 12 exceedences [sic] of PM10 daily limit value vs 9 by now in 2010
