A public consultation into Liverpool’s Ten Streets regeneration project this week.

Ten Streets is a major plan to create a new creative industries district across 125 acres of the city’s northern docklands.

Liverpool City Council believes the scheme could see the creation of up to 2,500 jobs and is close to Peel’s Liverpool Waters site and Everton FC’s new proposed new stadium at Bramley Moore Dock.

The council’s cabinet has approved the draft Spatial Regeneration Framework (SRF) and the public consultation will launch at 10am, on Tuesday, October 10, at the Titanic Hotel in Stanley Dock.

Businesses, residents and members of the public will be invited to give feedback on the document which sets out 10 ideas, five key themes, and a set of design and development principles to guide the current and future development of the site over the next 15 to 20 years.

There will also be a series of public roadshow events to be held across the city at Titanic Hotel on Sunday, October 15, from 12pm to 4pm, Fact on Tuesday, October 24, from 12pm to 6pm, and RIBA, Mann Island on Monday, November 6 from 12pm to 6pm.

The draft Ten Streets SRF will also be available online to view on the Ten Streets website by clicking here with feedback forms available to collate comments.

The deadline for responses will be Tuesday, November 21.

Following the consultation the final SRF is anticipated to return to the cabinet in December for approval and formal adoption as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).

The SPD document will assist in the determination of all future planning applications and any potential use of the council’s Compulsory Purchase Orders – both in the Ten Streets creativity district and surrounding areas.

The city council hired consultancies HOW Planning and shedkm shape the Ten Streets SRF.

Joe Anderson, Mayor of Liverpool, said: “Ten Streets has phenomenal potential to transform North Liverpool and the city’s future economy.

“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.”
