UK: Local Economic Partnerships to replace Regional Development Agencies

"Ministers have confirmed their intention to abolish RDAs [Regional Development Agencies] and support the creation of Local Economic Partnerships (LEPs), to be in place by March 2012 at the latest. They have also indicated that some of the RDAs' current functions will continue at a national, rather than local level.

The Government has stated that a White Paper will be published in the autumn which will give greater detail and, we expect, clarify a number of issues–such as which work will be carried out locally, which nationally and which not at all.

RDAs accept this change is coming, and are committed to helping ensure as smooth a transition to the new arrangements as possible. Our main task in the meantime remains to support economic recovery and future growth."

(England's Regional Development Agencies, 2010)

London Underground Victoria Line ceramic tiles

The Victoria Line that opened between 1968 and 1971 "provided the opportunity to produce a new and consistent look across the whole line, from the trains themselves to the stations and platforms. All aspects of design were overseen by Misha Black, the Design Consultant for London Transport (1964–1968), who previously had a similar role with British Rail. He employed the talents of the The Design Research Unit (DRU) – a collective of designers, artists and architects who designed all aspects of the VIctoria Line.

Each platform was designed with a very muted colour scheme, described by some of the press at the time as the 'late lavatorial style' (1, P58). The tiled designs in each seat recess provided much needed colour and decoration, and gave each stop its own visual identity. The results were a mixture of direct inspiration from the station name and references to historical details of the local area."

(Ian Moore, Design Assembly, 3 May 2010)
