    Liverpool Waters developer Peel unveils latest proposals
    Jan 28 2010
    by Neil Hodgson, Liverpool Daily Post



    LIVERPOOL will get a vision of its future this weekend when property developer Peel stages a public consultation on its plans £5.5bn Liverpool Waters proposal.

    The waterfront scheme is proposed to transform derelict dockland to the north of the city into a vibrant commercial and residential hub rivalling anywhere in the world.

    Its exhibition near the cityís MetQuarter, at 9 Whitechapel from 10am-5pm tomorrow and Saturday, will feature the latest scale model of the draft project and exclusive new images, to encourage visitors to offer their views on Peelís ambitious plans that could take up to 30 years to complete.

    An outline planning application is currently being prepared for the scheme, which is the largest urban regeneration project in the UK.

    It includes more than 150 acres of disused dockland, which it is planned will be redeveloped into a high quality, mixed-use new quarter of Liverpool where people can live, work and enjoy the spectacular waterfront.

    Peelís vision for Liverpool Waters includes creating a major sustainable community in this part of the city.

    It is being designed to make a significant contribution to the economic resurgence of Liverpool and its wider area, with new and existing residents and increasing the number of visitors to the city.

    Part of Liverpool Waters is planned to accommodate city centre expansion and it is also intended to stimulate regeneration in adjoining areas of the city centre, north Liverpool and the wider area.

    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the

    how it once was?

    That's good news! I hope they can find the finace to do it, as the banks still aren't lending? Though it says they're only submitting for outline planning consent at the moment? A case of watch this space then?

    Peel are a property company and the most money is made in dealing with land. All their proposals involve water spoace filling in Liverpool and Wirral Waters.

    They are aiming to build mini Dockland in two locations. Should we take them serious? Merseyrail rapid-transit is essential to ensure the success of Liverpool Waters and Wirral Waters. They require direct Underground rail access to: Liverpool city centre, to each complex and to Liverpool John Lennon airport. There are no firm proposals to run rapid-transit rail into the two complexes. There has been no formal plan to run rapid-transit rail into the Liverpool Waters complex - we will see in a matter of days.

    They proposed running trams to Hamilton Square for Wirral Waters. They cannot be taken seriously when they propose a mickey mouse transport system for this?


    Post-Panamax for Seaforth? Freight terminal for the airport? None there.

    Sounds a bit hicky without a solid transport infrastructure on the table. They'll need to convince the planners with a robust plan, before any permission is granted? It'll be interesting to see how it develops? As for building it, many developers are struggling at the moment to finance schemes such as these. I don't think that's their motivation though?
