HMEP's Objectives

HMEP's Objectives:

The HMEP Vision and Annual Plan are ambitious and focus on enabling and embedding transformational change across the highways sector. Three strategic objectives set out to deliver the HMEP vision and plan - each being led by an HMEP Board member

1. Encourage Leadership

HMEP will provide a more compelling case for change; working to secure the support and buy-in from elected members, senior officers and practitioners. We hope this will encourage leadership and help the sector to recognise the opportunities for transformational change so that they positively engage and take action.

2. Build Capacity

HMEP will help the sector to help itself, by connecting a broader range of people, organisations and networks. We will offer support to ignite ideas and build capacity from within and beyond the sector so it understands the benefits, and feels equipped to deliver transformational change.

3. Enable and Embed Change

HMEP will offer targeted support that enables and embeds change. Our range of tools and guidance, as well as indicators will help the sector to measure their progress towards improved efficiency and effectiveness, so that services are sustained long into the future.
