Lambeth launches cooperative council plans, January 28. The plans involve ‘community-led commissioning’, and a Lambeth Cooperative Incentive Scheme. "This will take the form of credits that people can use for discounts in local shops, for local leisure or sports facilities, or as a council-tax discount. To make sure the money is spent locally, any credits will be awarded in a new local electronic currency, building on the success of the Brixton Pound that already operates in the borough and is the UK’s only local currency in an urban area."
