Land Use Consultants will work in association with GHK Consulting on the project over the next 6 months.
The study has been commissioned to ensure economic growth in the region can be sustained and is within environmental limits, but also enhances environment and social welfare.
The research will include:
- Development of a methodological framework for defining and measuring environmental limits, for example in carbon emissions and water resources, that is relevant to the East Midlands.
- Testing the framework in situations where it is considered that economic growth in the region could be coming up against environmental limits.
- A stakeholder consultation workshop as part of the testing process.
- The preparation of a ‘learning and development' package of the final framework for potential users.
