– From Strategy to Delivery
In July, the Marches LEP and its three partner councils (Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin) published an Energy Strategy for the area. The first question to answer is how to take the aspirations of the strategy and mould these in order to develop an achievable action plan!
