    Default Have Peel finally shown their hand?

    This 'Manchester-based' company is putting off the expansion of the Port of Liverpool but going ahead with ?100m on Salford Port because it is better connected to the West Coast Line. Media City is already topping out - a huge blow to the Culture Capital.

    Perhaps they will drop Liverpool Waters and Wirral Waters next; perhaps they were always going to. Liverpool Waters is now intrinsic to Liverpool Vision's plan for the city. Certainly, Peel are now ideally placed to block Liverpool's progress if they wanted to and a Peel man is now chairman of the NWDA.

    Seen lots of these plans for Merseyside and not much happens. I was amazed to see us getting this far, with all the new builds etc. Trouble with Manchester is it's geographical position and its poulation catchment area. It will always beat us on that account alone. Mnachesters councillors do appear to grab any opppertunity they can. Ours seem eager to miss out when ever they can.

    As with any private land owner whether it be Peel and the whole dock system or a bloke with a bombdie on the corner of the street, if they don't put forward and action plans to do something with it within a certain amount of time, the council should have something implemented in the sale contract to make them.

    Manchester is not in a better geographical position. It is one side of the empty Pennines, in the bottom right hand corner of the north west. Across the Pennines is the Yorkshire economic capital Leeds. Liverpool is easy to get to and North Wales is across the rivers. Ireland and the Isle of Man are in easy reach. Wrexham wants to be on electric Merseyrail with direct Liverpool centre and airport access - borderlands line.

    Liverpool is being kept back over Manchester. The point about no direct airport rail connections proves that.

    Peel were responsible for the Mill town canal development that made many docks shallow by infilling so they could make money. Deep sea ships cannot berth city centre docks. They only understand inland barges. Bizarrely, they fill in deep water Liverpool docks and keep inland Manchester docks deep.

    Have little faith in Peel to deliver anything.

    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?

    Manchester has always been the commercial capital of the north west.That is up and till now. Consider the implications of being in a European boom when it comes. Liverpool is well situated to in get on the act. Manchester rose on the back of the cotton trade and Atlantic traffic Liverpool made that possible. However consider the commercial triangle of Dublin Belfast and Liverpool and also the port of Glasgow to an extent, this is our corner of Europe what does the future hold?
