These are my Delicious Links for September 29th through October 9th:
- List of brownfield sites to drive development | Inside Housing – A new online database of London development sites has been set up by two quangos.
The London Brownfield Sites Database, set up by the London Development Agency and the Homes and Communities Agency, covers around 2,300 previously developed sites in the capital.
The database covers over 1,000 more sites than its predecessor the National Land Use Database.
The HCA is considering how to use the system for other parts of the country.
The database also lists transport routes, deprivation, social infrastructure, as well as heritage and natural environment assets for each site.
London boroughs can use the data to inform their policies, site specific allocations, and housing and employment land availability assessments.
David Lunts, HCA regional director for London, said: ‘It will also be an essential tool for the HCA’s Single Conversation with our partners in the London boroughs. We are already considering how other parts of the country could benefit from this pilot.’
- KDPaine’s PR Measurement Blog: It’s people not tools that matter – Our point is this. There's a new tool released every week. Some are free, some cost money and some are a combination of the two.. All of them do the same thing — reduce the blogosphere/twitter/social media to a giant bucket of words, pull out the relevant ones, count them. and produce some attractive charts and graphs. NONE of them measure reputation, relationships, brand health, brand strength or anything else. In order to figure out what works and what doesn't; where your money is better spent, where you're getting the best ROI, you need a sapient human, familiar with your goals and objectives that can look at those numbers and charts and draw some conclusions and make recommendations.
