NML works on new 10-year waterfront masterplan

Exciting changes are on the horizon, as National Museums Liverpool—best known for the Museum of Liverpool and Mersey Maritime Museum—nears the end of the tendering process for a new masterplanner.

We’re excited to see what they come up with. Last month the World Museum, Museum of Liverpool, and Maritime Museum were announced the UK’s first, third, and fourth most visited attractions outside of London, respectively.

95% support for Everton’s Bramley Moore stadium project

Speaking at the MIPIM conference in France last month, Denise Barrett-Baxendale, CEO of Everton FC, announced 95% of people involved in their 2018 consultation “were in support of the move to Bramley Dock.”

She stated the stadium will be built within the next 5 years, but so far no mention has been made of the challenges this development would pose to the city’s World Heritage status.
