    Default Waterloo Dock Area

    Please send an email or letter ASAP to:

    Proposal Number:
    06F/1421

    Jon Woodward (planning officer)
    Planning Department
    Liverpool City Council
    Municiple Buildings
    Dale Street
    L69 2DH

    I advise all to make an objection by letter or email ASAP to the filling in of West Waterloo Dock

    Email for objection:
    jon.woodward@liverpool.gov.uk


    ADVERTISING




    Some points of objection. I'm sure you can think of more

    1. West Waterloo dock is historic nearly 200 years old, dating from 1834.
    2. The historic dock is a part of the rich heritage of Liverpool
    3. The dock forms a water environment for the flats between West Waterloo Dock and East Waterloo Dock. The residents bought those flats because of the water environment the locale offered. This will be obliterated.
    4. Filling in of the dock further “obliterates the City On The Water”, which the city was promised the redundant docks would be, transforming the city to world renowned Amsterdam or Hamburg.
    5. Dock being filled in as a convenient dump for waste material for the canal developer.
    6. Filling in the dock degrades the water based environment of the area for future developments.

    Is it valid to make an objection when not resident in the City of Liverpool? Are such submissions considered, or deemed invalid?

    Anyone can object no matter where they live. Many people are away for a few years for job purposes ect.

    A result by retaining the dock? Yes if enough people email. The canal link is not important and many just don't like it.

    The developers are trying it on and a naive city desparate for something to be done may just say yes to them using the historic dock as dump for waste materials.

    I would rather the scheme is scrapped if they insist the dock is filled in.
