Liverpool’s Ten Streets plan could see the creation of 2,500 jobs over the coming decade

A major regeneration plan for Liverpool’s North Docklands that could see the creation of 2,500 jobs will take a step forward this week.

Liverpool city council’s cabinet is being asked to endorse the commissioning of a Spatial Regeneration Framework (SRF) – a key planning document that will shape the future development of the Ten Streets area.

The SRF document is a critical piece in the Ten Streets masterplan as it will be considered for adoption as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to assist in the determination of all future planning applications in the area.

It will also be used to determine the potential use of the Council’s Compulsory Purchase Orders.

The report will be debated on Friday and comes just two months after the successful launch of the Ten Streets vision, which unveiled 10 big ideas to regenerate 125 acres of former dockland between the northern edge of the city centre and the landmark Tobacco warehouse at Stanley Dock.

Ten Streets has the potential for up to 1m square foot of development and the city is keen to attract creative companies and enterprises to flourish alongside artistic organisations – which will include the UK’s first revolving theatre.

Ten Streets is also being seen as a second potential cluster for the creative and digital sector.

Baltic Triangle, just to the south of the city centre is now home to more than 400 creative and digital businesses but capacity for more growth there is restricted.

Joe Anderson, Mayor of Liverpool, said: “The launch of the Ten Streets district was a phenomenal success and has generated a huge amount of interest from the creative sector.

“The vision for the area is the right one and now we need to move to the next stage to start creating the foundations on which to build an exciting new future for this historic part of North Liverpool.”

The area also lies on the boundary of Peel’s £5.5bn Liverpool Waters scheme with Stanley Dock situated less than a mile from Bramley Moore Dock – the proposed home for Everton Football Club’s new stadium.
