Environmental Sustainability Technical Assistance (ESTA)

The Environmental Sustainability Technical Assistance (ESTA) project supported the North West Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) areas to embed environmental sustainability into their economic development priorities and work streams:

The project was funded by the Environment Agency (EA) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and ran from April 2012 to December 2014. 
Technical assistance was provided through two core project resources. Experienced environmental practitioners worked with the local partners providing expertise and knowledge, commissioning additional technical research as required supporting collaborative activities between LEP areas and bringing in further specialist skills. 

Published ESTA project resources can be found on the Project Outcomes page.
