Liverpool City Council has appointed consultants to help push forward the procurement of its Festival Gardens joint venture.

Mace has been appointed to the role, beating off competition from 13 other bidders.

Under the plans, the firm will help prepare the procurement of the new development that will deliver housing and other spaces to the waterfront area.

The council will look for a “high-calibre and experienced development partner” to deliver a “thriving, sustainable, healthy and inclusive new neighbourhood for south Liverpool”.
