We commissioned Arup to undertake this report in July 2009. It was a two stage project undertaken in collaboration with the Merseyside authorities, Halton Borough Council and West Lancashire District Council to help inform the development of the Local Planning Framework.
The first stage of the project provides a broad overview of the current policy context, technologies and potential for renewable energy in the sub-region. Whilst the second stage undertook a more specific investigation of the spatial opportunities, constraints and policy options for renewable energy across the sub-region.
The primary purpose of the study is to provide a sound evidence base from which to develop our renewable energy policies.
