Liverpool Chamber of Commerce said the recent withdrawal of Housing Market Renewal Grant Funding has left Liverpool with less money to regenerate certain renewal zones and has left the city with many publicly owned houses that were previously earmarked for demolition.
The seminar will look at how a strategy for bringing empty homes back into use using social enterprise and local firms, and retrofitting them to make them energy efficient, could be used to deliver not just housing, but how this could be used to maximise training and job opportunities for local people in this new emerging sector.
Liverpool Chamber said this could be the catalyst for a wider retrofit project of the city's building stock and help make Liverpool a leader in this sector.
