Waterfront redevelopment most important thing for city, Post online poll reveals
DEVELOPING Liverpool’s waterfront should be the main priority for the city over the next 15 years, a survey commissioned for The Post found.
Just under 35% of the people polled on their reactions to the council’s “strategic investment framework” plan – unveiled last week – said the regeneration of the docklands was the most important element of the ambitious document.
Second most important, at 24%, were the council’s plans for improving the “Great Streets” of The Strand, Hope Street, and the corridor from Lime Street to Water Street along Dale Street.
Overall reaction to the plan was positive from almost 75% of respondents and 77% supported plans which would reduce traffic in the city centre.

One respondent said London Road should be a priority, while others pointed to the long debated tram system.
“The bus network is creaking and we need many more and properly enforced bus lanes and proper cycle lanes.
