There could be exciting news for the city of Liverpool as a ruling could allow the city to be used as a starting point as well as a stop off point for cruise ships. The cruise terminal opend in 2007 with the help of £18 millions in grants but a stipulation of the grants was that the port could not be used a start and end point for cruise ships, only temporary stops.
In order to overcome the rulings, Liverpool City Council have put forward proposals for a partial repayment of the subsidy in exchange for a lifting of the restrictions. The figures suggest that Liverpool City Council plan to repay £5.3m over 15 years.
A decision on the proposal is likely to be announced early in the new parliamentary year.
