Public Meeting: Planning for a green Liverpool City Region

The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) Lancashire Branch invites members of the public and community groups with an interest in the environment in the Liverpool City Region to attend a public meeting to discuss progress towards a greener City Region, and how communities can get involved with the process. The meeting will also see the official launch of the CPRE Lancashire Brownfield Land Registers Toolkit, which CPRE has developed to enable communities and planning departments to work together to maximise the potential for brownfield development in their areas.

Liverpool City Region is comprised of the local planning authority areas of Halton, Liverpool, Knowsley, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral, and the charity has extended the invitation to the meeting both to residents of these six authorities and to those in neighbouring areas.
 
CPRE sees the creation of the LCR Combined Authority, led by Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram, as an opportunity to plan strategically for the City Region’s environment, as well as for its economic and social infrastructure. With devolved powers including planning and transport, combined authorities can be at the forefront of environmental solutions. Steve Rotheram’s mayoral manifesto dedicated an entire chapter to his “Green” ambitions.
 
Speakers include Gideon Ben-Tovim (LCR Mayoral Advisor on the natural environment) and Mark Dickens (Liverpool City Region Combined Authority), as well as CPRE’s Jackie Copley and Andy Yuille.
 
The meeting is to take place betweeen 10am and 12.30pm, on Thursday 19th July, at the Quaker Meeting House, 22 School Lane, Liverpool, L1 3BT. Booking is essential but tickets are free - visit https://tinyurl.com/Planning-green-LCR to book or visit Planning for a Green LCR to find out more.
