The long-discussed plans for the new Liverpool Cruise Terminal were finally approved. The facility will be located within Peel L&P's GBP 5 billion Liverpool Waters scheme and built at the site of Princes Jetty. It has been designed to allow for some of the largest cruise ships in the world to embark and disembark at Liverpool.
The planning committee of the city council voted unanimously in favor of the application for the development's detailed design, after outline permission being granted in April last year. It will feature a baggage hall on the ground floor, a passenger lounge, a cafe, and check-in on the 1st floor.
The council is investing GBP 32 million in upgrading A565 to support the new cruise facility and North Docklands and is currently gearing up to create a GBP 20 million link road to extend Leeds Street to the waterfront to support a GBP 30 million Isle of Man Ferry terminal.
