The future of Liverpool’s International Festival Gardens site is to take a major step forward this week.
The public are being invited to give their views on a draft masterplan that aims to create a ‘cultural garden suburb’ that would also transform the site into a major visitor and cultural destination.
A four week public consultation will be launched today by Liverpool City Council, who took control of the site last year, with the feedback to be used as a guide to a future outline planning application in 2017.
Surveys are being undertaken to assess ground conditions with the intention to revitalise the gardens, which are open to the public, and southern grasslands as public amenity space with opportunities for sport and recreation.
The draft masterplan also sets out to enhance connections with the surrounding community, including a safer pedestrian route to Priory Wood and St Michaels train station.
This masterplan is a comprehensive approach to regenerating the wider Festival Gardens site with greater benefits for the local community. This will be a long-term process to carefully develop what is a hugely important site to the city and its residents.
Two public consultation events will be held on: · Wednesday, 30 November, 10-6, at Sefton Park Library, Aigburth Rd, L17 4JS · Wednesday, 7 December, 10-6, at Liverpool Town Hall
