A range of housing types and densities, and a mix of employment opportunities will be responsive to the changing economy. The vision is to create a thriving river city, a green and social public space and a beautiful place in which to grow the functionality and business activities of the Liverpool region.
The riverfront will be rejuvinated and transformed with better public access and a new town park as Liverpool’s focal public space. A new public boardwalk will breathe new life to this upcoming lifestyle destination creating new recreational activities.
The ecological value of the river will be protected and restored, with flood risks managed by raising land for development or lowering it to maintain the floodplain area.
A new pedestrian bridge from Lighthouse Park is to be erected, creating a sense of movement and connectivity. This new River precinct is set to create a thriving retail and outdoor community space and social hub.
A connected, walkable street network will improve accessibility to the area, including new river crossings connecting the Liverpool City Centre, Liverpool Train Station, the River Precinct and existing parkland on the Western bank.
Upgraded public transport services and new on and off-road cycling routes are also proposed. The intention is to create safe transport and user-friendly for all those who access the precinct.
New open spaces, community facilities, and schools will also be provided in the Precinct. This includes three potential vertical schools, new linear open parks connecting to the river and enhancements to existing parks in the precinct.
In addition to this, plans include a multi-purpose district community hub, an indoor recreational facility, children’s services such as day care and preschools, and a library.
