£5.5bn Liverpool docklands regeneration plan submitted

4 Oct 10 Plans for a £5.5bn regeneration of Liverpool's docklands have been submitted to the local council.

Plans for a £5.5bn regeneration of Liverpool's docklands have been submitted to the local council.

Peel's Liverpool Waters scheme includes the 55-storey Shanghai Tower, which will be the tallest UK building outside London.

It also features high-rise offices, housing, shops and up to 14,000 apartments on the derelict site.

The developer has already received planning approval for its £4.5bn Wirral Waters scheme, on the opposite side of the River Mersey

Councillor Joe Anderson, leader of Liverpool City Council, said: "Liverpool Waters is a hugely ambitious and exciting scheme which has the potential to bring about the transformation of an area which has been in need of regeneration for decades.

"We, along with other agencies, have worked with Peel to help shape this scheme but we do recognise that there are great sensitivities attached to it and there will be full consultation before a decision is made as part of the normal planning procedure to ensure the best possible outcome for the city."

The council will start looking at Peel's planning application this week.

The final decision will be made by the Secretary of State.
