I attended a special Parks meeting last night (1st October 2012) focused on identifying a realistic and ambitious plan of projects, for the future, in and around Truro.
The meeting was chaired and driven by Councillor Miss Constance Fozzard, and following on from the fantastic success of Truro in the Britain in Bloom competition. In this initial meeting the focus was on;
Discussion of potential projects which would benefit Truro and those who visit our city.
The need to prepare business cases for those projects which are considered most realistic.
The requirement to show a real need for any projects identified.
The importance of risk and change management.
The need for a delivery timetable.
As someone experienced in commercial project management I am always driven to deliver a high quality product whilst managing value for money, risk and a realistic delivery time/programme.
The enthusiasm at the meeting was high and the ideas were fantastic. I'm excited to see how we progress.
