Core Work

Merseyside Environmental Advisory Service (MEAS) is a specialist unit which provides advice to the six District Councils which make up the Liverpool City Region on environmental matters such as aggregates and minerals, coast management, contaminated land, ecology and biodiversity, environmental impact assessment, Habitats Regulations Assessment, historic environment and archaeology, renewable and low carbo energy and waste management.  Our main customers within the districts are the planning departments to whom we provide environmental advice on planning applications, major projects and planning policy. 

Please see our areas of expertise for more information on the range of subjects in which we offer advice.

MEAS also works in support of the wider environmental agenda in the Liverpool City Region through input to, and management of specific projects and partnerships.

MEAS is passionate about embedding a sustainable and natural capital approach into the policies and strategy of our District customers and the wider Liverpool City Region.  We encourage investment in natural capital as part of our integrated advice and seek to deliver higher quality and  more resilient places across the City Region. All our teams are focussed on working with our customers to find cost-effective solutions for the benefit of communities, the economy and environment of our Council areas.

Sefton District Council, on behalf of the six client Districts, provide MEAS with office accommodation in Bootle and with a range of support services. Our full address and contact details are provided on our contact page.
