Peel Ports action plan

[ April 4, 2012   //   ]

Peel Ports said on 4 April that it had identified a programme of actions to tackle the main areas of concern raised in the consultation, which took place between June and September 2011.

Issues include Seaforth Nature Reserve, the environment, port traffic and congestion, Eastham Village, the Warrington swing bridges, and jobs, training and skills and procurement.

Peel will encourage the development of multi-modal freight solutions in partnership with existing port operators and as part of new development opportunities and continue to work with regional stakeholders to lobby Government for funding for surface access transport improvements.

Together with local authorities it will also launch a targeted recruitment campaign to enable local people to better access port jobs and work with local schools, colleges and universities to highlight the opportunities within the ports sector and develop training in the necessary skills.
