The relationship between water quality and economic regeneration in the Mersey Basin


A report to Northwest Water, the Environment Agency and the Mersey Basin Campaign. The report explores the role, both actual and potential, of investment in improved water quality in the stimulation of economic activity, particularly in traditionally rundown inner-city areas adjacent to rivers and canals. This is part of the recasting of the region's image, with good water quality central to the vision of a 'green and pleasant region', and the creation of a credible setting for growth and investment. The study covers the economy, environment and policy setting in the Mersey Basin, economic regeneration and property development.
