This study has now been superseded by the 2012 Employment Land & Premises Study Refresh above.

The joint ‘Employment Land and Premises Study’ (ELPS) was carried out by Sefton, Knowsley, Halton and West Lancashire Councils. The Study looked at issues such as the need for additional business land and the quality of existing industrial estates and business parks. 

The Study was prepared on our behalf by Consultancy BE Group, and is base dated to April 2008. It was subject to a formal 6 week public consultation between 28th May and 9th July 2009.

The final Study and appendices are available to view below.

Following the publication of the Study, it came to our attention that a consultation response from the Environment Agency had been overlooked. The addendum below outlines how the Study would have been amended had the consultation response been taken into account.
