Francesca works at Brighton & Hove City Council as the Sustainability Officer based in Planning. Francesca works to ensure planning policy delivers sustainable development; this includes delivering a sustainable food system. Francesca has worked closely with the Food Partnership since its inception and has played a role in embedding sustainable food into council policy, processes and practices. More recently this has included developing with the Partnership ambitious targets for the city and council’s pioneering One Planet Living Plan. The One Planet Food Action Plan aims to reduce the ecological impact of food, currently focusing on procurement and increasing food growing. Whilst the council has proactive food policies for its own services which deliver good and best practice in several areas, there is much further to go. The positive working relationship with the Food Partnership means this work has had a strong and steady forward momentum for over a decade.
