LIVERPOOL’S planning policies will be streamlined to help deliver 40,000 homes over the next 15 years.
The efforts to cut red tape and create one central strategy for the city will also help towards efforts to grow industry, council regeneration chiefs said.
They plan to deliver 300 hectares of land for industrial and commercial use by 2028.
Cllr Malcolm Kennedy, cabinet member for regeneration, said: “This approach will make the production of our planning policies more effective and quicker.
“Having them all together in one document will also make them easier to understand and use.
“We have to ensure that we have a plan which can drive the city forward despite the current recession and deliver the Mayoral priorities for growth.
“The Local Plan will set out clearly how we can achieve this. It will embed the core strategy which we have already approved and which sets out the way forward for city in the next couple of decades.
“It will be a very important document to guide the development of Liverpool at a crucial time.”
The new, single framework will be put to city bosses for approval at this Friday’s cabinet meeting.
