Liverpool Cruise Terminal

Liverpool City Council is seeking outline planning permission for a new cruise terminal located at the former Princes Jetty, close to the ‘Three Graces’ at Pier Head – part of the Liverpool Maritime UNESCO World Heritage site.

Project Details
  • Client

    Liverpool City Council

  • Architect

    Stride Treglown

The new Cruise Liner Terminal is being designed to cater for growth in the Cruise Sector and accommodate much larger ships at an increased frequency. The Terminal will include a terminal building, parking for coaches, taxis and cars along with landscaped areas. The terminal building will be built over two floors on top of a new suspended deck structure constructed over the River Mersey.

The development also offers an opportunity to improve and enhance the townscape character of the site.

Waterman has been appointed to undertake an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and prepare an Environmental Statement (ES) in consultation with the LCC Planning Department. This includes providing supporting technical studies including;

  • Air Quality
  • Noise and Vibration
  • Townscape and Visual Impact
  • Archaeology
  • Built Heritage
  • Ornithology, Marine and Terrestrial Ecology
  • Ground Conditions and Contamination
  • Coastal Processes, Sediment Transport and Sediment Contamination
  • Transport planning

Waterman also provided the following supporting documents:

  • Flood Risk Assessment and Drainage Strategy,
  • Habitats Regulations Assessment Screening Report,
  • Water Framework Directive Scoping Report.

The EIA involved a complex analysis of cumulative effects and the agreed approach with the Council involved two separate assessments, as some already consented developments are incompatible with the approved Liverpool Waters Masterplan and would not occur concurrently.
