Sustainable Route Map stakeholder consultation.

This is more fully explained on our blog 
http://h-map.org.uk/2016/05/17/towards-a-route-map-for-herefordshire/

We are planning to publish a set of sustainability indicators for the county. We need your help to make sure we've picked the best data and are interpreting it properly.

In this form we list all of the indicators in the Resilient and Fair Economy priority. 

There is more information available about how we selected these indicators.

There is space for a comment against each of them. We don't expect you to comment on every indicator.

Just the ones you are particularly interested in or have expertise in. 

If you'd rather download a consultation document and send us an email you can do that instead. Just email info@bulmerfoundation.org.uk

R1 Business support

This indicator was identified in the community consultation but it is not clear what is intended. 

Is it the number of business support interventions? The amount spent on business support or the number of businesses supported.

If you have any suggestions we would welcome them

R2 Access to opportunities and training
% of people aged 16-64 in employment, Herefordshire, by year


NOMIS (official government data) provides an unemployment rate and an employment rate. They do not match exactly for several reasons. Unemployment rate at Herefordshire level is modelled. Accordingly we are using the employment rate.

https://datahub.io/dataset/employment-rate-in-herefordshire-by-year/resource/15298304-c77e-4ac3-bd8b-d6079957d5a8
 
R3 Workforce without any qualifications or training

% of people aged 16-64 with no qualifications, Herefordshire by year

 
R4 Quality of employment

Identified as an indicator in the community consultation but it is not clear what is intended.
If you have any suggestions we would welcome them.
 
R5.1 Qualifications
Attainment of 5 GCSEs A*-C, inc. Maths and English

There are a range of qualification datasets published by DfE. Each tells a slightly different story. Should we have more education datasets and if so, which ones?

https://datahub.io/dataset/percentage-pupis-a-c-gcse
 
R5.2 Qualifications
KS 5 A levels and Level 3 Qualifications

As With R5.1 there are a range of datasets we could use. Which education/qualification indicators should we pick?
 
R6 Apprenticeships

The number of apprenticeship starts is readily available but is the raw number sufficient or should we express it as a %: of all 16-19 years olds or NEETS for example?

https://datahub.io/dataset/apprenticeship-programme-starts-by-year-herefordshire/resource/4e608d22-7bdb-49e1-843a-b3631b38b89d
 
R8 Not in education, employment or training
The % of 16-19 year olds in Herefordshire not in education, employment or training

There are two datasets that give slightly different results but only one dataset appears to be available at local authority level.

What is the best dataset to use for this indicator?
 
R9 Contribution of voluntary sector

This indicator was identified in the community consultation but we cannot identify a suitable dataset.

Do you have any suggestions for suitable datasets we could use for this indicator?
 
R10.1 Appropriate housing stock
Size

If you have a recommendation for a suitable dataset we would appreciate the suggestion.

Otherwise we will look to develop a project that will be able to generate this data.
 
R10.2 Appropriate housing stock
Quality

This indicator was identified in the community consultation. We have not been able to identify a suitable dataset to use to generate an indicator.

If you have a recommendation for a suitable dataset we would appreciate the suggestion.

Otherwise we will look to develop a project that will be able to generate this data.

We propose to use this data as an indicator https://datahub.io/dataset/fue
 
R12.2 Energy efficiency and access to affordable energy
Domestic energy efficiency improvements; Green Deal and ECO

This indicator was identified in the community consultation. We have not been able to identify a suitable dataset to use to generate an indicator.

If you have a recommendation for a suitable dataset we would appreciate the suggestion.

Otherwise we will look to develop a project that will be able to generate this data.

If you have a recommendation for a suitable dataset we would appreciate the suggestion.

Otherwise we will look to develop a project that will be able to generate this data.
 
R13.1 Access to sustainable county wide integrated and sustainable transport
% of journeys to work made by bicycle


We haven’t been able to identify a regular measure of % of journeys made to work by mode (this is measured every 10 years in the census). But the Department for Transport does publish traffic estimates for major roads each year.

We propose to use a version of this data as an indicatorhttps://datahub.io/dataset/total-traffic-on-major-roads-in-herefordshire/resource/679c0eb1-bc2d-4083-8d7c-e45bc83a2737
 
R13.2 Access to sustainable county wide integrated and sustainable transport
% of journeys to work made by walking

The census in 2001 and 2011 contained questions that allow this to be estimated. Because it only takes place every 10 years we don’t think this is suitable to use as an indicator. We don’t know of an alternative source of data though.

We would be interested in suggestions for alternative datasets or comments on whether the census data should be used.
 
R13.3 Access to sustainable county wide integrated and sustainable transport
% of journeys to work made by public transport

The census in 2001 and 2011 contained questions that allow this to be estimated. Because it only takes place every 10 years we don’t think this is suitable to use as an indicator. We don’t know of an alternative source of data though.

We would be interested in suggestions for alternative datasets or comments on whether the census data should be used.
 
R13.4 Access to sustainable county wide integrated and sustainable transport
% of journeys to work made by car

The census in 2001 and 2011 contained questions that allow this to be estimated. Because it only takes place every 10 years we don’t think this is suitable to use as an indicator. We don’t know of an alternative source of data though.

We would be interested in suggestions for alternative datasets or comments on whether the census data should be used.
 
R14.1 Traffic
Average traffic speed

Average traffic speed is related to congestion in that, if congestion increases, speeds will decrease. That said congestion is not the only factor influencing traffic speed.

Even so we propose to use average traffic speed per month as an indicator for this measure.

The Department for transport publishes a table of average traffic speeds on locally maintained roads which we have used to create our indicator data. It excludes minor roads and roads managed by Highways England (the A49, A40 and M50 in Herefordshire. https://datahub.io/dataset/road-congestion-in-herefordshire/resource/83c9c952-6bdb-4fe1-9239-0d8683ba6fda

There are reliability statstics for Highways England maintained road but we do not propose to use these as they are experimental, and were changed in 2015.
 

R14.2 Traffic
Total number of casualties on Herefordshire roads

Herefordshire Council publishes a number of different road safety statistics. We could use the number of KSI (people killed or seriously injured) or the total number of casualties.

We propose to use total numbers of casualties but we would be interested in any feedback on this choice. https://datahub.io/dataset/road-safety-statsitics-in-herefordshire/resource/122b0b22-acee-4c87-8d58-072dabcb5379

R16 College/education transport

This indicator was identified in the community consultation. We think that it refers to  accessible and regular public transport for students but as far as we know, there is no data for this.

If you have any suggestions we would welcome them
 

R17 Provision of alternative modes
Number of electric vehicle charging points per year

The service OpenChargeMap aims to publish the definitive list of charging stations. We propose to use this dataset and update it each year based on the records held in OpenChargeMap.

This means that 2016 will be the baseline year, it will take several years before we can generate an indicator for this measure.

If you can suggest alternative datasets we would be grateful.

R25.1 Digital economy
Availability of SuperFast broadband


There are a range of measures that could be used as indicators of fixed line broadband access. We propose to use “Availability of Superfast Broadband as it has been consistently measured and is well understood.
https://datahub.io/dataset/broadband-data-for-herefordshire/resource/7d6fe019-cdfa-48af-ba04-255523dc3e07
 

R25.2 Digital economy
% of county without reliable 3G


There are a range of measures that could be used as indicators of mobile broadband access. 3G is widely used so we propose to use 3G coverage. Ofcom provides coverage data for premises, roads and geography. We propose to use geography because this seems likely to be the most relevant to the rural economy.

In future years we may need to develop an indicator around 4G coverage. Should this be a third indicator or should it replace the 3G indicator?

R27 Living wage
Number of employees being paid  the higher rate (non statutory) living wage

We have data for proportion of jobs below the living wage. This started in 2014 so we propose to use this as a baseline
