New brand for the city

Liverpool Council is working with a marketing agency to develop a new brand for the city.

A council spokeswoman said the council was "embarking on a number of strategies to transform Liverpool into a destination of choice to live, work and do business — and to attract local jobs for local people".

"The council is working with marketing agency principals to develop the new city strategy and to build a consistent and compelling new identity," she said.

She said the council would involve the community and business people throughout the re-branding process.
