Knowsley Council is considering creating a Knowsley Energy Services Company (Knowsley ESC) that could deliver a range of energy services to businesses on Knowsley Business Park.  

The council does business with many suppliers in delivering its objectives.


Groups such as voluntary agencies, community groups and charities can express an interest in bidding to run particular council services.

If your business activities could be harmful to the environment, or to people’s health, you’ll need an environmental permit to operate.

You can commission a wide range of services from Knowsley Council, including IT support, grounds maintenance and building services.

All businesses should prepare themselves for emergencies and develop business continuity plans.

Knowsley offers a range of business development opportunities , including key industrial parks and high-quality business environments.

The Localism Act 2011, which came into effect on 21 September 2012, creates opportunities for local groups to bid for buildings and land defined as community assets when the owner wishes to sell them. Assets of community value.

The transfer of a community asset is about giving local people and organisations greater control over the future of their area and community.

Knowsley Council is responsible for Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE) in the borough.
