Move comes after Unesco threatened to withdraw city’s World Heritage Site status
Liverpool council has appointed a consortium led by London-based planning and design consultancy Urban Initiatives Studio to come up with a “tall buildings policy” for the city.
The council is seeking to strengthen its position around the development of tall buildings after Unesco threatened last year to pull the city’s World Heritage Site status over concerns around the impact of a number of proposed high-rise schemes, including two residential blocks of 31 and 15 storeys located a short distance from the historic Pier Head area.
Liverpool won a stay of execution over the Unesco threat by creating an initial tall buildings policy for the next incarnation of its core strategic-development document, called the Liverpool Local Plan.
