At the recent Care for Air Conference in Sheffield, Gary Mahoney from Sefton MBC gave a presentation on the progress that the partnership has been making with development of the Low Emission Toolkit.

We are working with TTR, CERC and RPS Planning to develop the toolkit. It will include:
In September, the consultants produced a ‘prototype’ version of the tool, which we are currently testing. The Partnership received additional funding through the Defra AQ Grant to develop the tool further, ready for a wide-scale release in 2011.
