Sisk on board for Liverpool Waters central park plan

Peel has submitted plans to deliver enabling infrastructure and high-quality public realm, including a new park around the Central Docks neighbourhood.

This area will be the largest of the five planned neighbourhoods at Liverpool Waters, with the planning application paving the way to deliver thousands of new homes, alongside commercial, retail, leisure and community developments.

The proposals outline plans for new street infrastructure, the development of the 4.7 acre Central Park, and public realm areas north of Jesse Hartley Way.

They will also significantly improve connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists from the city centre and Princes Dock through to Everton’s new stadium at Bramley Moore Dock and the city’s northern docks.

If approved, Central Park will become one of the city centre’s largest green spaces and will include over 1,000 trees.

Chris Capes, Peel L&P’s Development Director for Liverpool Waters, said: “This is a very exciting moment for Liverpool Waters as the submission of this planning application is critical to the development of Central Docks.

“These proposals are significant for Liverpool and the North West, and will enable development of the whole neighbourhood over the next ten years. At the same time, we are setting a quality benchmark for all new public realm in later phases of Liverpool Waters.”
