                             Liverpool’s Mayoral Development Zones   - Review   |   1
                                                  On becoming Mayor of Liverpool in April 2012, I made a
                                                  series of commitments which included creating 20,000 new
                                                  jobs in the city. Making such a commitment at that time,
                                                  whilst the country was in the middle of a crippling recession,
                                                  coupled with a series of unprecedented government cuts
                                                  being imposed on Liverpool, was always going to be a tall

                                                  But Liverpool is a city that I passionately believe in. I have
                                                  often said that the city’s best years are to come, and I truly
                                                  believe that over the last four years we have proven what is
                                                  possible to achieve against all the odds.

                                                  Key to the success of this important commitment is how this
                                                  City Council can work with other agencies and partners,
                                                  pulling together the resources needed so that we create the
                                                  opportunities to work with new and existing businesses, in turn
                                                  helping them to grow and create those new jobs.

                                                  To do this, over the last five years, the city has focussed its
                                                  attention on five key Mayoral Development Zones and two
                                                  Enterprise Zones, each chosen as areas with the most
                                                  potential for generating employment, particularly for local
                                                  people in adjacent residential areas where jobs are vitally

                                                  We have used our land resources, connections and
                                                  partnerships to provide the sites, support and opportunities to
                                                  attract businesses to invest in these zones. Since early 2012,
                                                  over £2.45 billion worth of development within them has seen
                                                  existing jobs safeguarded in new and refurbished offices,
                                                  warehouses, industries, health facilities, schools and colleges.

                                                  This document looks back at the achievements over the last
                                                  five years across the five Mayoral Development Zones and
                                                  the Liverpool City Enterprise Zone.

                                                  And it doesn’t stop there! Another £1.3 billion is currently on
                                                  site in these zones, providing some 1,589 new jobs when all
                                                  the space created is filled. The City Council is also looking at
                                                  innovative new ways to increase its rental income from
                                                  purchasing key properties or land through the “Invest to
                                                  Earn” initiative, or through investing in expanding businesses
                                                  such as Liverpool John Lennon Airport so that it can share in
                                                  future profits to reinvest in our services.

                                                  I hope after reading about the great strides this city has
