Armed with new powers from central government, and matched with a Local Finance for Growth funding package worth an initial £120 million, Liverpool’s Mayor took responsibility for developing the strategic vision of the city in 2012. 

Liverpool set up the first Mayoral Development Corporation outside London, promoting both the City and the City Region at home and abroad, and implementing a single investment programme package.

This has included:-


Using the city’s assets to create employment opportunities

Our priorities are to encourage investment that brings positive benefits to the city in terms of jobs, education and training facilities, and greater housing choices.

The City Council provides support through a number of teams with a regeneration focus.  These teams work together to market the city and showcase potential development sites and opportunities – including Council or other public owned sites wherever possible – to either potential new investors or to existing companies based in the city wishing to find land or premises in which to expand.  Business investors are supported through a range of financial support options such as the Mayoral Investment Fund. For qualifying investment projects, the support on offer may involve equity, loan or flexible funding packages.

Did you Know?: Since 2012, some £2 billion has been invested in schemes across the Mayoral Development Zones, resulting in over 5,000 jobs being created and 3,000 existing jobs safeguarded.
