PLB : Leeds & Liverpool Canal- Creative design and consultancy for cultural and natural heritage

Leeds & Liverpool Canal Corridor
For Mersey Waterfront

The Brief:

  • After years of neglect, the Leeds & Liverpool Canal has become the focus of major regeneration initiatives in Merseyside.
  • Aim to become a strategic multi-user route linking Liverpool with the coast at Crosby and eventually part of a long-distance route around the Mersey basin.
  • Includes planned Liverpool Canal Link opening more navigable waterway providing a destination for canal boaters with a dramatic increase in water traffic on the canal.
  • Our Solutions:
  • An Interpretation Plan aimed at turning a neglected part of Merseyside’s heritage into one of its major assets, without damaging areas of ecological significance.
  • Survey of the canal, mapping natural and built heritage features of interest for educational or interpretive resources.
  • Seek the input of communities living near the canal to understand their aspirations and priorities at all stages.
"Thank you for your hard work on this project. Feedback from the steering group has been very positive and we feel we have a thorough and relevant plan to work with. The PLB team was easy to work with and offered solutions that were innovative and creative."
