Plans for a bus layover hub at Old Haymrket in Liverpool city centre have been approved, in the face of opposition from councillors and business figures including Signature Living’s Lawrence Kenwright.
Liverpool City Council has suggested there are “compelling arguments” for expanding the city’s World Heritage Site to include areas such as Rodney Street, Chinatown, and Hartley’s southern docks, with a feasibility study due to be put together in the coming months.
Despite fierce local opposition, planning permission has been granted for the controversial replacement of Bixteth Street Gardens, a nine-month programme that forms the first part of CTP and Kier Property’s £200m Pall Mall development.
Ahead of the first detailed planning application being put forward at Kier and CTP's £200m Pall Mall Exchange in Liverpool, landscape architect Re-Form has outlined its designs for a 32,000 sq ft "green square" at the heart of the 10-acre masterplan.
The World Heritage Committee has approved the city’s status at its annual summit, but it remains on a list of “sites in danger”, a position it has held since Peel’s vast Liverpool Waters scheme was approved in 2012.
