    Would definitely improve the look of Park Rd and create jobs etc, but do we need ANOTHER flippin' Tesco??????

    Are they not at the point of saturation?

    An updated planning application was submitted at the end of January 2009. I expect we'll hear something in a couple of weeks.

    This is just plain bad planning. The dumb Liverpool planners at it again.

    Park Rd was a long road full of shops and pubs from Warwick St up over the hill at High Park St and down to the Dingle. There was no centre, as the road served the streets immediately off the road.

    The overhead railway had an underground station at the end of the road at the Dingle. The station was built after the areas was built up and failed to make that vicinity a centre as underground stations tend to do. The station being a terminus serving only one side was of little help either.

    The station should have been brought onto Merseyrail in the 1970s with a view to extend the line further inland, as the original Overhead Railway plans. In the 1970/80s there was lots of redevelopment about around the station The area around the station then could have been a local vibrant centre and the shops and amenities focused around the dip in the Dingle.

    Instead the city's largest supermarket is being built on the hill away from the station which in the future could be recommissioned. How dumb.

    It is not too late, bringing the station back into commission by implementing this, Circle Line, the area could be even more of an attraction. People from the south docks could get to Park Rd via Brunswick, and Lodge Lane too and beyond. Regenerating an inner city area by using rapid transport - which is already there waiting.

    Too easy isn't it!!!!!

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?
