– Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson
I’m absolutely delighted that the Secretary of State shares the confidence we have in our ability to deliver this vitally important regeneration scheme, while protecting our architectural heritage.
Today’s announcement marks the start of a new era for Liverpool, paving to way to us delivering a world class development which will transform a part of the city that has been in desperate need of investment for decades.
Liverpool Waters will create thousands of jobs and opportunities for local people, as well as providing new housing and attracting new businesses and visitors.
The government has given the go-ahead to Liverpool Waters, a £5.5 billion scheme to regenerate 60 hectares of dock land in Liverpool.
