Liverpool has a population of c.491,500 (ONS 2017 estimate) and a wider metropolitan borough population of 1,544,400.

Due to the city's world class infrastructure, high skills base, and low cost of housing, it is identified as having more growth potential than London and many other core regional cities.

Liverpool has an estimated £10 billion development pipeline with infrastructure improvements at an all-time high, which includes transport hubs such as Liverpool Lime Street being upgraded along with consistent passenger numbers at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.
