Council unveils new vision for Festival Gardens

Liverpool City Council has revealed the next phase of its vision for the former International Festival Gardens site.

The local authority is seeking a development partner to help it create a “cultural garden suburb” with the potential to include up to 2,500 new homes at the waterfront location.

The development – which is envisioned as a mixed-use project with new public open space, cultural venues, leisure outlets, docks and a waterpark – will be known as Festival Park Liverpool.

The council elaborated on its plans to transform the site at the MIPIM expo – a global property convention held in France – and revealed new artist’s impression images of how the scheme could look.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson, says: “Festival Park Liverpool presents a unique development opportunity at what is a hugely important site to Liverpool and its residents.

“We need a partner, or partners, to help realise the vision and create a cultural garden suburb which will have no equal in the UK.

“The site is fully owned by the city council and we see the Festival Park as a key component of Liverpool’s future prosperity, addressing the need for more quality homes and complementing what the city is achieving at the Knowledge Quarter and Liverpool Waters.”

The council has confirmed that it will draw up a revised masterplan for Festival Park Liverpool within the next six weeks following a successful public consultation.

    Two developers have already walked away from building houses on this site as the land is contaminated and would cost to much to treat as it use to be the main refuse tip so methane gas is in the soil, again Joe Anderson is playing Monopoly with Council tax payers money
