Master plan revealed for Liverpool City Centre

Posted: 05/11/2012

The blueprint for yet more regeneration in Liverpool was unveiled on Friday which includes many changes to the city centre that Pali are very excited to reveal!

Perhaps one of the biggest changes listed in the proposals is to demolish the Churchill flyover and create more green spaces to reduce the amount of traffic. St Georges Hall was also included in the regeneration scheme in the hope that it can be transformed into a Trafalgar Square type of destination. Key improvements to the waterfront including an all seasonal walk way are also part of the latest plans for the city.

Hope Street, the Strand and the corridor from Lime Street to Water Street along Dale Street are another major part of the blueprint with upgrades to the area. These plans have been created by the regeneration agency, Liverpool Vision.

Inspiration has been taken from other great cities like Hamburg, New York, Boston and Ottawa which has helped create a 140 page document full of plans to secure Liverpool’s future as a major city whilst improving the environment for residents as well as visitors.

Perhaps one of the most demanding proposals which has been outlined in the report is the need for a rapid transport link between Liverpool John Lennon Airport and the city centre because the current lack of this is considered a constraint on growth of the city, according to the report.

Housing is also a key part of the regenerations plans because there are a lot of Georgian houses in Liverpool that have been divided into flats but the proposals outline the need for larger family homes as well as the construction of office space and an exhibition centre.

What do you think of the latest plans for Liverpool City Centre? Do you think the city needs further redevelopment and do you believe the proposal will get the go ahead?
