Baltic Triangle - Development Framework
The Baltic Triangle area of Liverpool sits to the immediate south of Liverpool city centre and is bounded by Liver Street in the north, Mill Street to the south, St. James Street to the east and Wapping to the west.
As a result of the areas proximity to the city centre and its new popularity – fuelled by a blossoming creative and digital sector overseen by the Baltic Creative C.I.C – it has attracted significant levels of development.
Since January 2012 £128 million has been invested in new developments with a further £62 million currently on site.
Following feedback from stakeholders the City Council established a draft framework to guide future development in the area to manage these conflicts of interest and ensure quality design and development. After a public consultation exercise, the Baltic Triangle Development Framework was endorsed by the council in December 2017.
In January 2018, the city council announced it had appointed LDA Design to develop a Spatial Regeneration Framework (SRF) to ensure the future success of the area.
The draft SRF, which will include an expanded area incorporating Cains Brewery and surrounding neighbourhood south of Parliament Street, is now out to public consultation until Friday, 3 April.
Once adopted by the council it would be used as a Supplementary Planning Document to inform any planning applications in the area. This will be enforced when Liverpool’s Local Plan is adopted later in 2020.
