Digital Town Hub Engagement Platform

A Digital Town Hub will provide selected communities within the London Borough of Croydon (LBC) with a locally managed platform to support social cohesion, resident engagement and local economic growth.

COVID-19 Early Response

As the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic became apparent, a number of discussions were initiated with local council service providers.

Social Distancing and Traffic Insights

RBK and LBS officers expressed a strategic requirement to better understand how the Council could support the reopening of the highstreet (and other areas in the borough) while still helping to protect its residents.

Introduction

“The South London Partnership boroughs are starting out on an ambitious project which is considered “market leading” across the UK. This is an opportunity to enhance the lives of our residents using the insights we’ll gain from the project. We are proud to be playing a significant part in this groundbreaking and collaborative initiative.”

Programme Sponsor for the InnOvaTe Project

The South London Partnership is working with London Councils to deliver an exciting and innovative “Internet of Things” (IoT) project across the five south london Councils of Croydon, Kingston upon Thames, Merton, Richmond upon Thames and Sutton. This initiative is funded by the Strategic Investment Pot (SIP) as part of the London Councils Business Rates Retention scheme which is administered by the City of London Corporation.

Overall, 22 bids were received from 15 accountable boroughs for a total of £123.4 million and in July 2018 it was recommended that the South London Multi-Purpose Internet of Things Platform would receive funding to an amount of £4 million.

The funding will allow the SLP boroughs to deliver a multi-purpose Internet of Things (IoT) platform which will connect various sensors across borough boundaries. The project will use IoT to obtain new data insights using internet-connected sensors, with minimal human intervention to support and drive economic growth across the sub-region.

The project will bring together technology and places to create spaces that address challenges in our communities and opportunities to help people live better, healthier lives and live independently for longer. It could also deliver financial savings to boroughs.
