World Heritage Site SPD

About this SPD

The World Heritage Site Supplementary Planning Document provides detailed guidance for new development, regeneration and conservation in the Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City World Heritage Site (WHS) and the surrounding area.  It was adopted in October 2009.

The SPD supplements the Unitary Development Plan and deals with the management of the site, and embodies the principles in the existing WHS Management Plan.  You can download the SPD and associated documents below.
