Stanley Street Study
There are just three weeks left for members of the public to have their say on the consultation being undertaken on Liverpool’s Stanley Street area.
The council-funded study is to collect views on how the area can be marketed to compete with other cities' successful gay districts, and public views are being taken until May 13.
The consultation is being undertaken by Urban planner Feria Urbanism, who have been speaking to gay and non gay business owners in the area to look at how the gay quarter can be promoted inside and outside the city.
Richard Estham of Feria Urbanism told Seen Magazine: “We are really excited about looking at Liverpool’s Stanley Street area in more detail and looking at how the area can be better promoted and designed not only in the evening but also daytime.”
Liverpool Labour Councillor Nick Small, Cabinet Member for Employment and Skills added: “We have been working on this proposal idea for a while. After a recent council report on the city centre, there were points raised about the gay quarter an improvements to an already vibrant area.
“When we have spoken about looking into promoting and developing the gay quarter and economy, we have had unanimous support form the GLBT community.”
