Plans to build a new ‘international standard’ cruise ship terminal in Liverpool UK could take one step closer next week.
The outline proposals of Liverpool City Council for a GBP 50 million facility on River Mersey were recommended for approval at planning committee meeting.
Currently, the local authority is asking for permission to demolish Liverpool's existing derelict landing stage located at Princes Jetty, which is next to Princes Dock, in order to make way for the new development which would allow the port city to welcome much bigger ships than it is currently possible.
The new terminal would feature state-of-the-art passenger & baggage facility, with passport control, cafe, lounge, toilets, vehicle pick-up point and taxi rank.
A report that recommended the scheme for approval said the new development would expand the capacity to enable Liverpool to accommodate bigger ships with up to 3,600 guests and "add turnaround capabilities to the existing operation".
