Two public consultation events are being held in the Fabric District this month, to help shape plans for future development of this emerging and exciting area of Liverpool city centre.
Whether you live, work or visit Liverpool’s Fabric District, this is your opportunity to share what you think works well and what needs to be improved in the area.
The Fabric District CIC is holding two informal drop-in events to speak to residents and locals about the future of the area.
The public consultation sessions will take place on:
- Wednesday 14 June, 3pm – 6pm at The Brain Charity, Norton Street, Liverpool
- Thursday 15 June, 4pm – 7pm at Rusty’s Bar in the Tapestry building on Gildart Street, Liverpool
Please come along and share your thoughts – this is your chance to help shape the CIC’s vision for an exciting area we know has a brilliant future.
As well as an exhibition of plans and images to explain the past, present and potential future of the Fabric District, there will be free refreshments.
Feedback from the workshops will be used by the CIC to draft a Community Development Plan.
Michael Birkett, chair of the Fabric District CIC, said:
“The Fabric District is a key part of Liverpool city centre and the Knowledge Quarter and has a brilliant future ahead of it.
“There are key things that we know need to change and we are very keen to understand the views of local people, businesses, residents and visitors to ensure that we understand what people think works well and what people think should be improved.
“It would be great if you could come along and share your thoughts and views.”
The CIC’s board has been working closely with Liverpool City Council and the Knowledge Quarter Liverpool (KQ Liverpool) team to make sure the Fabric District is included in long term regeneration and public realm strategies for the city. Exciting recent developments we have welcomed include:
- The opening of the new Radisson Red hotel on Lime Street
- The retail and residential development for the Home Group on Monument Place
- The resumption of construction work on the two student housing blocks on Norton Street
- The completion of the ‘Innovo’ housing project on Devon Street
- The recent planning consent for the conversion of TJ Hughes, keeping the original facades and towers
- Continued investment and development at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and nearby Royal Liverpool Hospital
- Ongoing investment in new facilities at all three of Liverpool’s universities, all being immediate neighbours of the Fabric District
