Liverpool City Council is planning to transform 125 acres north of the city centre into a creative hub

A report on the transformation of 125 acres of Liverpool’s former docklands to the north of the city centre will be submitted to the city’s council next week for approval.

The document sets out a planning framework and key principles to shape the 15-20 year development and subject to approval will then go out to public consultation next month.

Architect Shedkm and planning consultant How Planning have been appointed by the council to shape the framework.

The Ten Streets Spatial Regeneration Framework document will then be resubmitted in December for approval and formal adoption as a Supplementary Planning Document.

The Ten Streets district is to be split into six distinct buffer zones running from Leeds Street in the south to the land adjacent to Bramley Moore Docks in the north with no buildings taller than eight storeys. It is to be a predominantly creative and employment district

Liverpool’s mayor Joe Anderson said: “Ten Streets is a long term project but we need to get the right foundations in place so can deliver something unique in the UK.

”This new framework document will no doubt be of huge interest to everyone who wants to see the transformation of this part of north Liverpool and the public consultation will be critical to shaping its direction.”
