On behalf of Wallace Land Investments Ltd and Redrow Homes, Pegasus Group, provided comments on the draft version of the Liverpool City Region Strategic Housing and Employment Land Market Assessment (SHELMA).
The draft SHELMA looks at the demographic and economic data and market evidence to consider what the appropriate Objectively-Assessed Need for housing and employment land is for the Liverpool City Region and West Lancashire as a whole and for each Council area individually, for the period 2012-2037.
The economics team provided input as follows:
- A critique of the SHELMA’s economic growth assumptions, reviewing what the document’s different employment scenarios forecast regarding future growth in the City Region.
- Identifying an additional employment scenario that would better represent the future growth trajectory of the City Region.
- Reviewing future growth in each district of the SHELMA area (Liverpool City Region and West Lancashire)
