Liverpool Waters plans are just a badge on the wall in the Town Hall. Passed by the City Council planning committee poodles in March and hailed by Peels Chinese Circus at the planning committee meeting as a new dawn for Liverpool, 6 months later they are still no nearer to building anything, in fact the past 6 months look as if they have been a waste of time, as they have now got to resubmit the application to the planning committee. Despite the city council press machine feeding the local press with mistruths that the application was to be submitted to the Secretary of State in August IT IS NO FURTHER ALONG THAN THIS TIME LAST YEAR.
IN THE MEANTIME LIVERPOOL HAS BEEN PLACED ON UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE IN DANGER LIST.
So the application was rushed through by Joe Anderson to help his Mayoral campaign and it is now clear that this was forced through with little thought. We do not have a Chief Planning Officer in Liverpool, since Nigel Lee retired. It is no wonder, the full gravity of the planning application was not discussed adequately.
In the meantime The UK State Party A.K.A The Government have been told by Unesco to submit a programme to remove Liverpool from the Unesco In Danger List.
A full report has to be submitted to Unesco by February 2013.
