Commercial Development of the Year

Liverpool City Region Combined Authority

At the Combined Authority, our aim is to ensure that everyone benefits from the decisions we make. We want to create an environment which allows our economy to thrive for the good of everyone who lives and works in Liverpool City Region.

We work together to make investments in areas that have a real impact on our communities such as transport, employment, culture, and digital and housing. By using the devolved powers we have, we can make a real and meaningful difference to the lives of the people living and working in the area.

The Combined Authority is led by Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram and brings together Liverpool City Region’s six local authorities – Halton, Knowsley,  Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and Wirral – to tackle the big issues that matter to us all. together.

As a proud Kirkby lad, Knowsley will always hold a special place in my heart. I’m incredibly proud of the investments we’ve made to help secure the borough’s long-term future and economic recovery in the aftermath of the pandemic.

Thanks to the opportunity devolution regions like ours are charting our own course and transforming places like Knowsley. The investments we’ve made in projects like Kirkby Town Centre, the incredible Shakespeare North Theatre in Prescot, and the brand new £80m train station at Headbolt Lane, which will be served by our £500m new trains, are testament to that.

These are exciting days for Knowsley. We’re helping to create lots of local jobs and apprenticeships and attract investment into the area. A bright future lies ahead and there couldn’t be a better time to run a business here!
