Environmental Quality


Several partnership groups have been particularly instrumental in driving forward this agenda at different times over the last ten years:

  • Reclaim the Northwest. A ground breaking initiative to produce a single manifesto for action to reverse the incidence of dereliction
  • Newlands Partnership Board. A strategic body that drew together the key funding agencies, major delivery partners and third sector experts to manage the programme on behalf of NWDA, providing focus and strategic leadership
  • Mersey Waterfront Partnership Board. An innovative body, which brought together six councils, to unite in promoting the waterfront as a key asset. Chaired by the private sector, it was embedded within the economic development agency for Merseyside – showing that the environment meant business
  • Environmental Quality Steering Group. Tasked with re-engineering the land regeneration agenda for an age of austerity and to manage work on a new Mersey Belt regional park – the ‘Adapting the Landscape’ framework
  • Atlantic Gateway Environment Group. Formed to take forward the ‘Adapting the Landscape’ framework under the banner of the Atlantic Gateway, this group is seeking new sources of funding for environmental projects
