Deloitte to map 10-year Liverpool investment strategy

Working with Planit, the consultancy giant will advise the city on how to make the most of its development potential and drive the city council’s vision of a “multi-billion pound investment boom”.

The aim of the 10-year investment strategy, which will be launched this summer, is to create a “route map for Liverpool to become one of the UK’s major economic powerhouses”, according to the city council.

“Liverpool is setting out its stall for the next decade,” said Simon Bedford, partner at Deloitte.

“Having developed and delivered materially on the last city-wide investment strategy the city produced in 2011, the intention here is to map out a future plan that captures all the positive attributes the city has to offer such that it can embark upon a new chapter.

He added: “It’s a very positive step forward and we look forward to working with a wide variety of stakeholders over the coming months to ensure that the framework delivers on the city’s restated ambitions.”

A key focus of the strategy will be to identify development sites that will be used to inform a “place-based approach to regeneration”, according to the city council.

Deloitte’s investment strategy will be informed by Liverpool’s local plan and various other city centre policy documents including the waterfront strategy, tall buildings framework, and transport plan.

Earlier this month, Liverpool City Council announced its intention to appoint a partner to work up plans for the “once-in-a-generation” development opportunity around Central station.

Don’t they do this for all the major cities though.

So another survey commissioned by LCC , any chance they can offer us some tangible worthwhile action in the city . Clearly the 2011 strategy and know doubt expensive fees have delivered nothing transformative.

Perhaps start with the basics and stop declining planning permission or reducing heights to developments that regenerate and create homes and jobs.

Survey after survey, crying out loud get something done

Surprising choice given the fact that this consultancy closed its Liverpool office. Will the report recommend that everybody consolidates in Manchester. Good work Agent Bernstein!

They could probably double the value of the city by picking up some litter.

A true example of borrowing your watch to tell you the time !

Yet another strategy and yet another plan and the city does not feel as though it is moving forward at all. The saying ‘Nero fiddled whilst Rome burned’ immediately springs to mind when reading this posting. It sounds as if it is all talk and no do planning wise and in respect of the city actually moving forward in any way!
