Another Landmark building coming soon, the hoarding, which must have cost a fortune, proclaims. Another ad-sign on the other side of the old Coopers bar which closed a couple of years ago despite protests from the lessees to keep it open (Sunday was a particulary busy afternoon with Cy Tucker a old favorite, in some quarters, did his gig there) advertises the grand job they are all doing for us. This site was another CPO job by the North Vested Interest Development Authority. (NWDA). http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2010/01/north-west-development-agency-shysters.html Directly opposite the Mann Island Development where the "Vested Interest" Development Quango gave away a plot of land worth 15 million for 3.25 million pounds. This can only be described as a conservative estimate by the shysters involved in the deal. I find it hard to believe that a site claimed to be worth a finished site value of 300 million pounds could be lied about in such a way as to devalue its worth to suit a few. Correspondent does another exellent article about the landmark building coming soon............a Travelodge...yes a Travelodge, has anyone seen the quality, or lack of quality, of the Travelodge chain. http://condensedthoughts.blogspot.com/2010/01/hotel-reservations.html Correspondent calls it Hotel Reservations and usually critical to the Oldham Hall Street Brigade he picks up on the fact that even they are against this one. http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/views/our-view/2010/01/20/liverpool-s-world-famous-waterfront-needs-better-than-another-budget-hotel-100252-25637804/ Even those dimwits at the Oldham Echo and the blind people at the Daily Ghost can see through this one. I noticed a lampost notice last Tuesday which states they are giving a small triangle of our land, pavement, to the developers. All objections have to be in by the 21 January, which was two days away after it was posted. What chance have you. This really is a city run by spivs who give away our land to their mates who have snuggled up to them. It is bad enough having a tacky travelodge in such a location but giving the pavement away is one step too far, or one too less as the case may be.
The Planning App and its Chris (The Riddler) Ridland dealing with another dodgy application, again, with The Reichmarshal Lee's our planning nightmares, thumbprints all over it.
The Application is 10F/0029 The planning departments number is 0151 233 3021.
The spivs have told Unesco everything is alright, it is far from it. www.liverpool.gov.uk/Environment/Planning is the portal they claim you can find all the details at.............bet it does not say they have spivved the pavement away in front of our noses with no objections because no-one knew anything about it. We could write to Colin Cover Up the Liverpool Chief Executive but as part of the Executive Board, he has already passed this I am sure and now its a case of banging it through.
Through all those dark years of depressing times all I needed sometimes was to see our majestic world heritage site to believe in myself, to think that it could be done here in Liverpool we have got a start above other towns. When Sir Neil Cossons http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2009/05/sir-neil-cossons.html the then Chairman of English Heretics, at the symbolic unveiling of the WHS inscription. "This is some achievement, now we have to build on what we have at the World Heritage Site" surely he did not mean it.
