John Hall and Paul Cherpeau, leaders of two of Liverpool’s principal business-first organisations have backed The People’s Project.
John Hall, Chief Executive of Professional Liverpool and Paul Cherpeau, Chief Executive of Liverpool and Sefton Chamber of Commerce visited the second-stage public consultation roadshow in Liverpool’s business quarter to show their support for the plans and try the virtual reality headsets.
After seeing the latest plans and giving the VR tour a try both were impressed with the scope of the plans. John Hall was particularly impressed with the business opportunity available at extending town out to the northern docks, saying; “you’ve got The Titanic Rum Warehouse Hotel, which is just a little bit out from the city, along with Joe Anderson’s project with the Ten Streets so it will meld in with that. I just hope it goes through because it’s one of the suburbs of the city that does need developing.”
Meanwhile, Paul Cherpeau was keen to highlight the importance of the consultation process to Liverpool residents regardless of football preference, saying: “It’s really important that the Club consult with a wide spectrum of society to consider what the best options are for the Club and for the development as a whole whether you’re a red, a blue or of another football allegiance. It’s a tremendous opportunity for us and the consultation process has been absolutely first rate, so it’s a great opportunity for us all to contribute to the Club’s development of those plans and make sure it’s a demand-led solution that the Club are finding.”
