Lithuanian Government visit to South Yorkshire

Published on Monday, 24th April 2017 in People and communities news

South Yorkshire will play host this week to a high-level delegation from the Lithuanian Government who are looking at public private partnership projects in the county.

During the three day visit they will see schemes in Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield and talk to the teams behind them about planning, procurement, construction and management.

The 12-strong delegation includes Ministry of Interior Heads and municipal Mayors from regions across Lithuania.

Projects they are due to visit include the Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham (BDR) Waste Partnership’s waste treatment facility at Manvers, Sheffield Street Lighting project, Newfield with Talbot Specialist School in Sheffield, Barnsley Horizon Community College, Rotherham Leisure Centre, Doncaster Adwick Leisure Centre, and St Thomas Wharton Community College in Doncaster.

The visit, from 25 to 27 April, will end with High Tea at Rotherham Town Hall hosted by the Mayor of Rotherham, Lyndsay Pitchley. The Mayor of Siauliai City in Lithuania, Arturas Visockas, said the delegation was very much looking forward to learning from developments in South Yorkshire.

He said: “It will be very interesting to take a closer look at the UK’s PPP projects and especially the good practices that led to their success. It means we will be able to approach future PPP projects with more diligence and confidence.”
