Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City
In 2004 Liverpool was inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site as the supreme example of a commercial port at the time of Britain’s greatest global influence.
The city’s historic environment continues to be a powerful engine of inspiration and prosperity, reinforcing identity and the distinctive character that sets Liverpool apart from other cities. The Council is embarking on ambitious new regeneration programmes and welcomes development that responds to the city’s unique sense of place with innovative schemes that will contribute to the successful cultural and economic growth of the city.
The Council offers advice and planning tools to guide development:
