The mayor of Liverpool has submitted a proposal to the new prime minister for a £230m Green City Deal to tackle climate change and boost the economy.
The new deal would aim to tackle climate change at the same time as growing Liverpool's economy, and would hope to create 10,000 new jobs, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The Mayor of Liverpool has pitched the £230m bid to Boris Johnson’s new Government in a bid to boost the city’s economy through new powers and funding, including incentives for the private sector to build more energy-efficient homes.
The bid aims to make the city carbon neutral by 2030 and, according to the city council, support 35,000 people into work, and train 4,000 apprentices.
The plan includes incentives for the private sector to build more energy-efficient homes, 6,000 homes built or retrofitted with energy saving features, the establishment of a Liverpool Mutual Bank and financial incentives for the most energy efficient homes.
It also proposes to make the £1bn Paddington Village development one of the country’s greenest new development.
‘This proposed City Deal centres on positioning Liverpool as the go-to place for clean technology investment, training and job creation through an inclusive and sustainable growth strategy,’ said mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, told the Echo.
‘We know the Treasury has set aside fiscal headroom to deal with the impact of leaving the EU, and we need to be ready to take advantage of this with a clear plan for our economy.
‘Through targeted and long term investments in the city’s infrastructure and skills development, we can become a global destination for inward investment focused on the new clean growth industry.
