Consultation on Cavern Quarter and Williamson Square Draft Strategic Regeneration Framework

Start date: Monday 21st October
End date: Friday 22nd November

What are we consulting on?

We are undertaking a five-week consultation on a Draft Strategic Regeneration Framework (SRF) and Supplementary Planning Document for the Cavern Quarter and Williamson Square, in accordance with planning regulations.

The SRF seeks to guide future development and investment within the area to support regeneration and includes strategies for music and art, tourism, heritage, connectivity, public realm and mix of uses.

It has been produced to maximise the area’s strengths specifically with regard to its cultural and built heritage and to address issues facing the area in respect of functionality and identity to enhance the quality of place and visitor experience and maximise its contribution to the city’s economy.

In preparing the SRF significant engagement has been undertaken with key stakeholders including the BID, Playhouse Theatre, Beatles Legacy Group and Mersey Travel. The documents that are the subject of this consultation are as follows:
