Plans to redevelop Liverpool's southern docklands have been approved by the city council.

The Waterspace scheme is being proposed by the Canal and River Trust to develop the area from Canning Dock to Brunswick Dock, creating three "zones".

It includes a floating sculpture park in the "cultural" zone of the Albert and Canning Docks and a floating event space in Salthouse Dock.

It also involves creating more moorings for boats and floating homes.

That would be in the proposed "leisure and aquatecture" zone, which would include new opening bridges in Wapping, Queens, Brunswick and Coburg docks.
