History

The Project Jennifer scheme will transform this part of North Liverpool providing a new District Centre for the north of the city, with a new supermarket, new shops, improved public spaces and new homes.

Why is the scheme called Project Jennifer?

The project is named Project Jennifer after the niece of the Auxiliary Bishop of Liverpool, Tom Williams, who suggested the name in his former role as a local parish priest of St Anthony's Church on Scotland Road. The name has been associated with the scheme ever since and has become a symbol of the united community in the Great Homer Street/Scotland Road area of Liverpool.
