There is a huge number of extensive and complex development projects set to fundamentally change Liverpool over the coming years. Some are already underway, others in the works - and some are a few years off yet.

A new bill approved by the New York City Council last week will make thousands of large buildings in the city — including those bearing the president's name — comply with strict environmental regulations. "President Trump might scrutinize or even outright deny the existence of climate change, but New York City is committed to fighting its drastic effects, which pose a serious threat to our future," Council Member Costa Constantinides, a Queens Democrat who led the effort, told CBS News."Reports show Trump Tower and other properties are among the dirtiest emitters in the Big Apple.
