A month-long public consultation has been opened on Ten Streets Liverpool, the regeneration district north of Liverpool City Centre forecast to create an estimated 2,500 new jobs over the next decade.
Ten Streets is part of the city’s big picture regeneration vision that will deliver 11 billion investment and create 40,000 new jobs in total over the next ten years. As a creative economy district, Ten Streets will complement other employment areas like the Knowledge Quarter, Commercial District and Liverpool Waters.
The Ten Streets vision is being launched to engage local businesses, stakeholders and the wider public in a debate about the area’s future. The starting point for the consultation are Ten Big Ideas, encompassing such themes as innovation, culture, growth, connections and collaboration, that will provide a broad direction for future policy and an emerging vision.
The headline-grabber of the Ten Big Ideas proposals is a revolving theatre, based on the successful Stage Around system first created in an aircraft hangar in Holland, while the proposal also ha an air of Bruce Katz’s work on innovation districts. There is also talk of Ten Streets being a renewable energy exemplar.
The new music and theatre venue will be the UK’s first-ever Stage-Around Theatre, based on the hugely successful performance space in Amsterdam.
Elements of the scheme include adding new squares and public spaces into the area, which is typified by former dock buildings and industrial spaces. Ten Streets covers 125 acres of former dockland between the northern edge of the city centre and the landmark Tobacco Warehouse at Stanley Dock and is designated as a “creative economy” district by the council.
The city is currently investing £30m in upgrading the A565 Great Howard Street and Regent Road in the area, while a new rail connection is being discussed.
Mayor Joe Anderson said: “The launch of this vision for the Ten Streets district is an opportunity of a lifetime to define Liverpool’s future as a creative powerhouse of the 21st century.
“For me, this new theatre says everything about our ambition for Ten Streets and how the creative sector can unleash the untapped potential of these once celebrated docklands and make them once again a beacon of economic growth.”
