    But the

    proposal for the 45ft-high, three-storey structure has come as a surprise to the owner of the popular Shanghai Palace Chinese restaurant, which occupies part

    of the land needed for the development.

    The restaurant will have to be demolished to make way for the new terminal, but owner Joe Farley says he has

    not been told about the scheme.

    Merseytravel has submitted plans for the new ferry terminal to Liverpool councilís planning

    department.

    And, yet, we still wait for the old sunk landing stage to be removed. The less said the

    better!

    new ferry terminal

    Oct 30 2006
    By Neil Hodgson, Liverpool Echo





    PLANS for a new £10m Pier Head Mersey

    ferry terminal were revealed today - and plunged straight into controversy.

    The new three-storey terminal will provide better facilities for

    passengers and could be ready by spring 2008.

    But it requires the demolition of the neighbouring waterfront Shanghai Palace restaurant, whose owner

    claims he has not been consulted.

    Joe Farley has a long lease and says he has expansion plans of his

    own.

    Good luck to the Shanghai Palace restaurant. It may not look much from the

    outside, but the views are cracking. It'll take fortunes (cookies?) to move the Shanghai Palace

    Thats how I like the sky in my day pictures.

    Not too cloudy or too Grey in the sky. I like

    clear blue sky too, otherwise I'll take none on any day I take any pictures.

    Joe Farley? So an Irish surnamed person owns it eh.

    Planned ferry terminal 'a trashy tart in front of gently ageing Edwardian beauties'

    THE man who complained to the World Heritage

    Centre about high-rise building projects close to Liverpool's Pier Head last night condemned the latest plans for a new ferry terminal on the waterfront.



    The scheme, exclusively revealed in yesterday's Daily Post, would see a three-storey building for the river ferry service.

    But Wayne

    Colquhoun of the Merseyside Preservation Trust has already alerted Unesco officials about the scheme.

    Last night he said: "Right in front of our

    three gently ageing Edwardian beauties they want to stick another trashy tart as if the current proposals for the Pier Head are not bad enough.

    "If

    someone had said to me you could design a building worse than the present terminal I would have laughed, but it's been done. In Liverpool when we put our

    minds to it we can do the impossible, only it's the wrong direction. I urge anyone who cares for World Heritage to write to Unesco at 7 Rue de Fontonoy,

    Paris.

    "We need a public inquiry and a masterplan agreed by popular consensus not just nodded through by a handful of people without the class or

    culture to be able to deliver what Liverpool needs to be a 21st century city on the world stage."
