Householders will be charged an average of about £16 annually to pay for Steve Rotheram's £77,500 salary, as well as his transport and housing projects.

The precept, expected to raise £7.6m per year, will also cover the general running costs of the mayor's office.

Mr Rotheram said funding cuts had left him with "no option" but the Taxpayers' Alliance said it was "insensitive".

Neighbourhoods need 'good design' says mayor

Good design should be higher up the agenda when it comes to planning new buildings on Merseyside, according to the Liverpool City Region mayor.

Mr Rotheram said it was "impossible to overstate the importance of the quality of the buildings we live, work in and see every day, for our wellbeing and quality of life".

Liverpool has some of the finest public buildings and spaces in Europe and I hope my role as Design Champion will help to ensure that new development supports and builds on that legacy".
