Liverpool launches UK's first heritage-led development plan

Liverpool is seeking to retain its World Heritage Status through the launch of the UK’s first heritage-led development plan.

The North Shore Vision document will shape the redevelopment of the city’s derelict northern docklands. It is the first development document in the UK to adopt guidelines set out by the United Nations on Sustainable Development and UNESCO’s own model for developing Historic Urban Landscapes.

Liverpool City Council commissioned the document after UNESCO placed the city’s World Heritage Status on the at risk register in 2013.

Mayor of Liverpool Anderson said: ‘Liverpool has wrestled - often quite publicly - with the idea of balancing the economic need to develop, with the need to respect the heritage of these unique but dilapidated docklands.

’We’ve been listening to the concerns of UNESCO – and we’ve been talking to Peel L&P to see how those concerns can be addressed without compromising the ambition we all share to develop this area.

’The result is the North Shore Vision and it is going to play a fundamental role in the multi-billion pound renaissance of this area over the coming decades, creating thousands of much needed jobs. I firmly believe the way this has been developed will make Liverpool an international beacon of heritage-led regeneration.’
