New Isle of Man ferry terminal near Liverpool city centre approved

A new ferry terminal linking Liverpool with the Isle of Man has been approved by the council.

The terminal, which will replace the current facility on the Pier Head, is set to be built on at Princes Half Tide Dock just north of the city centre.

It will mean a ferry linking the island will continue to come to Liverpool , and is set to be run by the Steam Packet Company.

According to the planning application, the current site is ‘outdated’ and the Manx government’s director of ports Ann Reynolds says that people living on the Isle of Man are fully behind a new terminal in Liverpool as opposed to elsewhere.

She said: “This location is the only one we have been offered and we have worked for a long time on these proposals.”

But residents at today’s planning meeting said the Manx government should have looked at other plans which wouldn’t require filling in part of nearby Waterloo West Dock.

Planning officers said the infilling of the dock had been reduced to the absolute minimum amount possible. The new terminal will be spread across two floors and be a short walk to the rest of the city centre.

 

The application says: “The ground floor of the terminal contains the entrance and check-in, baggage handling and security, staff offices, shop/café, and departures and arrivals space including WC’s.

“The first floor comprises passenger security, passenger departure lounge, café, management suite and departures and arrival space.

“The building includes a system of elevators, lifts and stairs to allow circulation of staff and passengers between the ground and first floors.”

A road linking the site of the terminal to the main roads in and out of the city centre are already being built. And passengers using the ferry on foot will use a bridge to get from the landing area to the terminal building.

  • The road seemed to stretch on endlessly before us, but Alexis assured me that our journey was near an end. We’d turn before long into thick woods and travel through narrow, winding roads until we reached her family’s cabin. I had no choice but to trust her as GPS had given out nearly 20 minutes ago.

    “There’s good wifi and okay reception at the cabin,” she’d told me, “but you can’t get there unless you know the way.”

    So here I was, driving alone in the middle of god knows where with a girl who was my student just a couple of weeks ago. Her and her four best friends had been together from first grade all the way through high school and now they had graduated with very different futures ahead of them. They had decided to kick off “the best summer ever” with a week long stay at Alexis’s family cabin. Alexis and I were heading up before everyone else, the four other girls and four guys.
