Detailed plans approved for new Liverpool cruise terminal


The Liverpool cruise terminal is expected to create a number of jobs and boost the city’s economy and tourism, in addition to making Liverpool Waters an even more exciting area to live and invest in.

Liverpool City Council has been given the go-ahead for the detailed designs of the Liverpool cruise terminal. Outline planning permission was granted in April 2018, and the City Council’s Planning Committee voted unanimously for the project’s detailed designs. Throughout the development of the proposals, Liverpool City Council was advised by Ramboll, JLL and Stride Treglown.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson commented on the project getting the green light: “This is the latest milestone in the re-emergence of Liverpool as a cruise destination.

“We are creating a world-class experience for the cruise companies and their passengers, and working with some of the very best in the construction industry to deliver the facilities.”

Landmark cruise terminal

Being constructed at the Princes Jetty site, the terminal will be built on a suspended deck on steel piles in the river. The landmark cruise terminal will span 10,000 sq m across two floors with a baggage hall on the ground floor and check-in, the passenger lounge and a café on the first floor. The proposals also include new public open space and hard and soft landscaping. Site preparation works are expected to start at the beginning of 2020.

The cruise terminal is expected to create a number of jobs locally and boost the economy and tourism. The project will allow the world’s largest cruise ships, which can hold up to 3,600 passengers, to come in and out of Liverpool. Mike Hopkins, planning director of JLL, stated: “The proposal will be a landmark facility, which complements the historic Liverpool waterfront and helps to promote the city as an international cruise liner destination – generating new investment into the tourism and retail economy of Liverpool.”

Liverpool City Council is also investing an additional £32m in upgrading the A565 to support the new cruise terminal and north docklands. On top of that, the council is looking to create a £20m link road, which will extend Leeds Street to the waterfront and support a new £30m Isle of Man Ferry terminal.

£5bn Liverpool Waters regeneration scheme

The new cruise terminal is situated within the £5bn Liverpool Waters Scheme, an ambitious project aiming to completely transform the city’s northern docklands area. At its waterfront location, the project will create five new neighbourhoods, which will be home to 9,000 residential units, 315,000 sq m of business space and 53,000 sq m of hotel and conference facilities.

One of the neighbourhoods being created is Central Docks. The second phase of the Central Docks residential developments includes Park Central, an investment opportunity with BuyAssociation. The development will feature 129 one- and two-bedroom apartments in an appealing area of Liverpool.

The apartments will have uninterrupted views of either the 12-acre park being built opposite Park Central or the canal riverway towards the city centre. On top of that, Central Docks will be home to unique businesses, world-class entertainment and leisure spaces, making it the beating heart of Liverpool Waters and an exciting area to invest in.
