Liverpool Waterfront Protection

New legislation by the Region of Queens Municipality will keep big business away from the Liverpool waterfront.

Land on the north side of Henry Hensey Drive from Mill Brook, to the west side of the new tourist bureau, is now a designated greenspace.

Mayor John Leefe says the designation will help citizens protect the space from commercial development.

Leefe says after public consultation, the by-law may be amended to allow for a farmer's market on the property.

The recreational designation excludes the Privateer Landings Condos.
