Airport and docks group Peel Holdings has received approval to build skyscrapers as part of the £5.5bn Liverpool Waters development project in England.

Touted as the city’s biggest regeneration project the buildings are planned for city’s northern Central Docks area, a World Heritage site buffer zone.

The city council approved high-rises in Central Docks and mid-rise buildings of seven and 15 storeys in the quayside area north of Salisbury Dock, part of the Liverpool Waters scheme.

The original plan of Liverpool Waters project included building high-rises in just two areas – the commercial district around Old Hall Street and Parliament Street’s southern gateway.
