Here’s how Liverpool plans to save its World Heritage Status
Liverpool’s Mayor Anderson said the North Shore Vision Plan would make Liverpool “an international beacon for heritage led development” in a live webinar.
The North Shore Vision 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. The plan will be used to guide the future growth of 260 acres of largely derelict brownfield land in one of the poorest areas of the UK. This area encompasses Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters and the Ten Streets District, and lies almost exclusively with the city’s World Heritage Site and its Buffer Zone.
The vision has presented by a consortium of planning professionals, designers and heritage experts including the city’s World Heritage Team and World Heritage Task Force and Steering Group – as well as representatives from Historic England, DCMS, RIBA, and the University of Liverpool.
