Ten Streets public consultation to begin

A major public consultation on the proposed dramatic transformation of 125 acres of former docklands is set to begin in Liverpool. The 6 week long event will be inviting feedback on the draft master plan which includes establishing a creativity district in the Ten Streets area of North Liverpool, which could generate up to 2,500 new jobs.  Liverpool City Council's cabinet have approved the draft Spatial Regeneration Framework (SRF) and the public consultation will be launch at 10am, on Tuesday, 10 October 2017, at the Titanic Hotel, in Stanley Dock, which lies within the City's World Heritage Site.

Business, residents and members of the public will be invited to give feedback on the document which sets out 10 ideas, 5 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, 15 October 2017, from 12pm to 4pm, Fact Liverpool, on Tuesday, 24 October 2017, from 12pm to 6pm and RIBA, Mann Island, on Monday, 6 November 2017, from 12pm to 6pm.

The draft Ten Streets SRF will also be available to view, on the Ten Streets website, with feedback forms available to collate comments. The deadline for responses will be Tuesday, 21 November 2017. Following the consultation the final SRF is anticipated to return to the cabinet in December 2017, 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, with the overall SRF area having been set out into 6 distinct buffer zones running from Leeds Street, in the South to the land adjacent to Bramley Moore Docks in the North.

Liverpool City Council recently procured HOW Planning and shedkm to undertake the task of shaping the Ten Streets SRF, which is proposing controls on the design and height of new developments in the area as well as ensuring commercial development and affordable rents within the Ten Streets district are protected. 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."

The Ten Streets vision, launched earlier this year, unveiled 10 big ideas to regenerate the Northern edge of the City Centre and the landmark Tobacco Warehouse, at Stanley Dock, which lies within Liverpool's World Heritage Site. The proposed creativity district lies within the poorest ward in the UK, known as Kirkdale.  The area has the potential for up to 1 million square foot of development and the Council is keen to attract creative companies and enterprises to flourish alongside artistic organisations.

Situated on Liverpool's Atlantic Corridor, next to Peel's ₤5.5bn is a key part of the City's big picture regeneration vision to deliver ₤13 billion of investment and create 40,000 new jobs over the next 10 years. As a predominantly creative and employment district, the proposals for Ten Streets will complement other emerging employment areas like the Knowledge Quarter and Liverpool Waters. Liverpool City Council has already made a big commitment to improving transport infrastructure in the area and is currently investing ₤100m in upgrading the roads, creating a new Cruise Terminal and is in talks to establish new rail connections. The City Council has also approved a Regional Growth Fund to be invested in The Kazimier's Invisible Wind Factory, which is seen as 1 of the primary creative incubators in the district. Other key partners in the Ten Streets scheme also include Harcourt Developments, owners of Stanley Dock.
