planning framework and principles for the ten streets area

shedkm’s vision for Ten Streets in Liverpool is based on innovative placemaking and using the existing qualities and heritage of a place.

Liverpool City Council and Harcourt Developments selected HOW Planning and shedkm to establish the planning framework and development principles for the Ten Streets area in Liverpool’s historic North Docks.

The production of a Spatial Regeneration Framework (SRF) sets out what can be achieved in the overall district. The Ten Streets area itself, at the heart of the SRF, will be progressed with a design code to help generate a successful balance of retained character and a new cultural and creativity hub.

The Ten Streets area of Liverpool is a unique opportunity to create something new for the city, building on the positive regeneration that has occurred to date, while creating an area with its own identity that can draw footfall, jobs, and visitors north from the current city centre core.
