Construction of the Isle of Man Ferry Terminal in Liverpool can start in the summer after planning approval was confirmed today.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle MHK, welcomed the news:

‘We now look forward to seeing the Island’s new terminal take shape. My thanks go to everyone who has been involved in enabling the project to reach this stage – with the promenade project now well under way and the Steam Packet purchased, this administration is proving it is getting things done for the long-term benefit of the Isle of Man. This is the first time that the Isle of Man Government has owned property in the UK so it really is a major step forward.’

The terminal will be constructed at Princes Half-Tide Dock, around 700 metres downriver of the current Pier Head facility. It will sit within Peel Land and Property’s Liverpool Waters.

The city council is investing a huge amount of money in the transport infrastructure to support this new facility and we are delighted it now has planning approval and can look forward to its completion. The Isle of Man and Liverpool have a historic relationship and this new ferry terminal will cement our strong links and forge even closer ties into the future.’
