A “masterplan” to boost Liverpool’s “Beatles Quarter” is to be created.
Liverpool City Council is proposing a regeneration area around Mathew Street, where the Cavern Club – which hosted the band’s early shows – once stood.
The aim was to bring an “enhanced and more co-ordinated Beatles tourism offer” to the area, the council said.
City Mayor Joe Anderson said there was a need to improve the area’s 24-hour appeal as the current offer was “not at the level it could and should be”.
The plans could involve the redevelopment of derelict and under-used buildings and the creation of a “more defined and useable public open space”.
