There has been a recent announcement: an office development, plus a 40 storey tower for Princes Dock. However, along with many I'm not a Peel fan, and in many ways think they are holding the city back due to their influence on decision making in the city. They have no real concern for the city itself; in fact they oppose other proposals which they feel will counter or compete with their own future plans or proposals. And as is the case so often these days in the corporate world - do nothing without the promise of some public funding.

Yes! And as said, it will be replaced with a public park/garden and a new bio-campus.

Here are the drawings. The Clatterbridge cancer centre will also be re-locating from its current Wirral location on to the site of the new bio-campus:

Luxury flats, restaurants and shops - big plans could transform world famous Mathew Street

Mathew Street could be given a new lease of life as a series of developments look set to transform the world-famous tourist destination.

The Beatles hotspot could see several new restaurants, shops and flats opening up in the coming months if city planning chiefs give their backing to a host of schemes.

And while Mathew Street itself could get a makeover, Cavern Walks shopping centre is also being overhauled thanks to a new manager with ambitions to fill its empty retail units within months.

Developers and businesses have their hearts set on a number of projects on Mathew Street and Victoria Street which, together, could revitalise the popular city centre attraction.

Already a huge draw for Beatles fans due to the Cavern, Mathew Street also offers fans the chance to revel in Merseyside’s musical history by taking in the Wall of Records.

But vacant buildings and shop units have cast a shadow over the street despite its popularity with tourists.

All that could change this summer, however. The huge Produce Exchange site, which the ECHO exclusively toured last week, is set to be overhauled as part of a several separate projects being considered by Liverpool council’s planning department.

Caribbean restaurant Turtle Bay and BBQ specialists Grillstock have both applied for permission to build restaurants on the ground floor of the Grade II listed building, which runs through to Victoria Street.

Both have already been granted premises licences by the council.

And, on the floors above the proposed restaurants, developers Foster Marlon have revealed plans to turn the vacant former office space - littered with spectacular decorative features - into luxury apartments that will be marketed around the world.

While those plans could see a big increase in the amount of people living and eating on historic Mathew Street, visitors could also be set for a variety of new shops to browse.

Cavern Walks, already home to designer stores Cricket and Vivienne Westwood, has just installed a new manager with grand plans for the centre, currently dominated by empty retail units and office space.

Revealing he was excited and honoured to take on a role in such a prestigious site, Gareth Hide told the ECHO he has big plans for the centre.

Mr Hide said: “I’m making sure that the place is going to be full in the next 12 weeks. I want to get the place going again, it’s a lovely building - an historic building. I want to bring it back to life, a lot of people come through and take pictures and they have not got anything to keep them here unless they have got thousands of pounds to spend on clothes.

“We have got a lot of enquiries at the moment and I’m confident we are going get the bottom floor full - it’s on Mathew Street, it’s a great place.”

After just weeks in his new position, Gareth has already changed the centre’s logo and secured tenants for three retail units and one floor of the building’s vast office space.

All of this is welcome news to Cllr Nick Small, whose Central ward covers Mathew Street.

He said: “I’m really supportive of all of this, it’s time we really cleaned up Mathew Street and really started making the most of it. This is perhaps one of the real world class tourist hotspots we have got in Liverpool with its links to The Beatles. I welcome anything that is going to bring more people into Mathew Street - it’s good news for the city.”

Joe Anderson boosts cruise hopes after Three Queens success saying expect 'positive' news within weeks

Hopes that Liverpool could expand its cruise ship terminal facilities were boosted today as Mayor Joe Anderson revealed there would be a “positive” announcement within weeks.

He said the opportunities the lucrative cruise market offers the city are not lost on him and behind-the-scenes work to take advantage of them is ongoing.

His comments come after Cunard director Angus Struthers expressed his delight at Liverpool’s huge reception for the Three Queens but added improvements were needed before the firm would consider “big ship turnarounds” in the Mersey.

This morning Mr Anderson said: “What he is saying is, as many other companies are saying to us, that they would like to put Liverpool in their itinerary but the facilities that we have at the moment aren’t good enough. We are very much aware of that and will be dealing with that over the next few weeks and I will be making an announcement on what is going to happen.”

Speaking after the spectacle Mr Struthers had admitted there were no plans for the company to resume turnaround voyages from the Mersey - but did not rule out revisiting the issue.

While heaping praise on the city and its reception for the Three Queens, he said: “Until there are substantial improvements to the capacity of the terminal, it’s very difficult for Cunard or any other cruise company to consider big ship turnarounds... if there were bigger facilities, or the opportunity came up again, then of course we’d look at it, because Liverpool and Cunard are inextricably linked.”

Mr Anderson said discussions were taking place with a number of people over the creation of a bigger cruise terminal facility and that he wanted a return to the days when he saw cruise ships anchored in the Mersey as they waited to come into Liverpool.

Highlighting the potential of the city’s cruise industry he said: “I think there’s 32m people that live within the catchment area of Liverpool - in terms of Scotland, the North East, the North West - who rather than travelling down to Southampton could just travel to Liverpool. The opportunity for us to actually take advantage of that is not lost with me.

“We will be reflecting on that, we are already doing things behind the scenes, we are very very much aware of what Angus has said but also what people higher up at Cunard have said and we are excited about that. It shows the special place Cunard has in our hearts as shown by 1.3m people coming out to watch the magnificent sight [of the Three Queens].

“They know they have got a fantastic opportunity in the city of Liverpool if we get everything right.”

Planning permission granted for 100,000 sq ft office at Liverpool Waters

Peel has received planning consent for its 100,000 sq ft Grade A office development, William Jessop House at Liverpool Waters within the Mersey Waters Enterprise Zone.

Liverpool City Council’s planning committee unanimously approved the application.

The development site is off William Jessop Way adjacent to the existing Princes Dock’s multi-storey car park and the building has been named William Jessop House after the 18th century civil engineer.

The building will have sub-dividable floor plates of around 10,000 square foot with the ground floor having the option for leisure usage to help bring further animation to the waterfront location.

Director at Peel responsible for Liverpool Waters, Lindsey Ashworth, said: “This had been a long journey since we started with the planning process several years ago and it is very comforting to be in a position to have the first detailed planning permission through.

“We brought forward this application as a signal of our commitment to, and belief in, the city’s commercial office market and would like to thank the city council for their swift resolution of our application which now allows us to take the project to the next stage.

“This has been a team effort to get to this stage with the many Liverpool organisations and entities involved continuously helping and supporting us.

“With an outline planning permission that spans over three decades, this is the end of the beginning of Liverpool Waters.

“Our focus now is on identifying an occupier for some or all of the building which would unlock the development.“

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said: “Liverpool Waters is an extremely ambitious scheme which has the potential to be a game changer for north Liverpool over the next few decades, and I welcome this progress.

“We are supporting Peel’s marketing of the development, which will deliver vital jobs and investment for the city.“

Liverpool always seems that much more charismatic and photogenic than the other English cities. Following this forum on and off it always strikes me that liverpool continues to have the edge. The what's Englands second city debate for me is obvious, Manchester and Birmingham third and fourth.
