John Hinchliffe-Liverpools World Heritage Waste of Space.

Liverpool’s World Heritage Officer. Yes we have one and have done for over five years. Funded by English Heritage its John Hinchliffe, the man who has sat idly by and watched the desecration of Liverpool’s World Heritage Site while doing nothing about it. What is the point in holding an office of such distinction if you roll over when any developer with a scheme to destroy key views tiggles your belly. Can you imagine letting them build the Three Black Slugs across the key views to the Taj Mahal or Stonehenge. Well Johnny come lately has. I would have been lying down in front to the bulldozers I once told him after a live Radio 4 interview whereby we called him into account over the destruction of Manchester Docks, which pre-dated the Albert Docks by 60 years. I had sent off a piece to Private Eye and it was edited for Piloti’s column that has been good to us over the years. Civic Vandalism I called it he could only stutter sitting next to me.

http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2009/03/manchester-docks-obliterated.html “What is the point in having the backbone of a jellyfish as far as world heritage principles are concerned”? I said to him outside. What is the point in allowing any old rubbish to be built without even an opinion? What is the point in masquerading?

Not from Liverpool he was bussed in from Yorkshire. He thanked Peter De Figueiredo the Heritage Fraud who was English Heretics Historic Building advisor for his help. http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2009/04/who-polices-heritage-police.html  Figueiredo is now working for Peel Holdings. What good is all the money in the world if you sell your soul? Talking of selling your soul http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2009/05/henry-owen-john-english-heretic.html  here’s one we did earlier about the Heretics North West Development Director. Yes Development Director not Heritage Director Henry Owen-John.

If there was a World Heritage Officer abatement society this World Heritage Waste of Space should have been reported to them. http://www.nwda.co.uk/news--events/press-releases/200401/liverpool-world-heritage-centr.aspx  They speak with forked tongue.

What is the point of having your job description as World Heritage Officer if you are such a week willed man that you will not forward yourself for anything that upsets the Status Quo? http://www.liverpool.gov.uk/Leisure_and_culture/Tourism_and_travel/World_heritage_site/Management_plan/index.asp  Does he really believe the rubbish he writes that Liverpool has a management plan? http://www.liverpooldailypost.co.uk/liverpool-news/regional-news/2007/09/13/liverpool-ordered-to-safeguard-waterfront-64375-19782564/  You would have to be a fool to do so and even more of one to help in preparing such a lie. http://www.architectsjournal.co.uk/home/liverpools-heritage-bid-is-a-site-for-sore-eyes/147046.article He wrote into the architect’s journal some time ago. http://www.openlylocal.com/documents/4238-Minutes-for-North-Liverpool-Scrutiny-Panel-meeting-May-11-2009-1-30PM  Now what is he doing about the Peel proposals.

What is the point in being there sitting in the same office as the Reich marshal Nigel Lee the Chief Planning Officer disaster who has done what the Luftwaffe couldn’t do “rip the heart out of the city”. http://liverpoolpreservationtrust.blogspot.com/2009/04/knock-off-nigel.html

I hope you are happy with your conscience Mr Hinchliffe We are far from happy with the disgraceful mess that we the public have had to watch unfold while you stand idly by as World Heritage waste of space.


  1. "that we the public" you are not we the Public, you a small group of people who cannot cope with change, and who if you where born 100 years earlier be complaining about the buildings that you now praise.

  2. What we are "me hearty" are people who are prepared to put their money where their mouth is and wish to be upstanding and speak about our convictions istead of hiding behing stupid pseudonyms such as "Pirate".
    We would be glad to enter into any debates that are serious debate based on architectural knowledge with people who know what they are talking about. If thats you "Pirate" lets know who you are and who you represent. If not go and chew some one else's "Bucaneer" off.

  3. Just found this site and will be visiting daily. as someone who has done as much as possible to restore (and still am)some of Liverpools neglected heritage I am heartened at the amount of effort you put in on behalf of Liverpools heritage and forgotten treasures.

  4. Thank you. We have tried to do what we can to alert the public as to the heritage structure that has become a farce in this once great city.
    The neglect by the architectural uneducated people running the city astounds us.

  5. How has he got away with this. The invisible man.
