    Exclamation Edge Lane Development

    Hundreds of homes in Liverpool are to be demolished after the Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott upheld the findings of a public inquiry.

    The houses will be knocked down as part of a road widening and regeneration scheme on Edge Lane.

    Mr Prescott confirmed a public inquiry decision that developers can secure the land with compulsory purchase orders.

    Liverpool Land Development Company plans to spend 300m on the scheme which will see 400 homes flattened.

    Edge Lane links the M62 with the city centre but it is often congested in the Kensington area.

    The public inquiry was called following residents' objections when the compulsory purchase orders were issued in January 2005.

    The developers claimed the scheme would improve traffic flow and regenerate the area, but residents argued it would just create a motorway into Liverpool and destroy historic Victorian houses.

    there's no doubt that edge lane needs sorting out and i am glad they're doing it. if you've ever been near there in rush hour you know what i mean.

    the thing that i don't agree with is the way compulsory purchase orders affect the families who live in the targeted houses for demolition. the problems affect home owners predominantly in such a way that i can't actually believe the process is legal but it is.

    apart from the obvious stress of having to uproot and move away from the area you may have lived in for years the real stress comes when you see how much they actually say your house is worth which is certainly not funny. they offer you what the house is worth. but what they don't say is that you get what your house is worth AFTER the compulsory purchase order has been served and not before. now if you've got half a brain it's not difficult to work out that you wont get a lot for a house thats earmarked for demolition. it's not exactly a star buy for anyone looking to invest in propertly is it?

    you might think I'm making this up, but this is how it's done and it's perfectly legal for them to take a house off a retired couple for example, who's paid their mortgage off and who's house is worth 200k and give them 50k and tell them to go and rent somewhere. they're too old to get a mortgage and didn't really need to pay rent as they worked all their lives to buy their house outright.

    this is how it works unfortunately so i fully understand why residents are upset.

    people should get fully compensated and should not be left worse off but there will be a lot of people who will be worse off.

    The problem is that the development is not being undertaken for the benefit of the community (but for the benefit of those passing thru' it) and residents are not being treated fairly in the pittance they are being offered for their properties. They are being offered 'market value', but that value has resulted from the regeneration activity itself i.e. once you declare an area a demolition area then the property prices collapse. Those facing compulsory purchase orders will either have to return to renting or take on large loans to remain as home owners.

    If plans are withdrawn though, wont it be to the detriment of the area resulting in nothing getting done? Millions of pound taken away from the area? I'm sure I've mentioned that before.

    Far more properties are being demolished than is necessary for the road widening so as to provide for a row of new apartments on either side. There are alternative proposals that involve far less demolition and the renovation of existing properties. The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister though is firmly of the opinion that regeneration equals demolition - a position that is not supported by many regeneration experts.

    City route redevelopment begins

    Controversial 350m redevelopment work is due to get under way on one of the main routes into Liverpool city centre.

    The Edge Lane scheme includes the demolition of hundreds of homes to make way for a dual carriageway linking the city to the M62.

    The Liverpool Land Development Company plans will also create new homes, shops and offices to regenerate the area.

    But some residents are still fighting the compulsory purchase orders issued on their homes.

    The scheme is backed by English Partnerships, Liverpool City Council and the North West Regional Development Agency.

    WORK begins today on a 350m project to transform Edge Lane in Liverpool.

    The scheme will widen the eastern gateway into the city with 550 homes being built as part of a huge expansion and regeneration package.

    Liverpool Land Development Company is leading the project that is expected to create and safeguard a total of 1,900 jobs.

    The changes have been controversial, with many residents protesting against the scheme which ordered the compulsory purchase of 490 homes and 24 businesses.

    Liverpool council leader Warren Bradley will meet David Waugh, chief executive of LLDC, this morning to mark the start of the work.

    The 65m road widening project, which will make the full length of Edge Lane a dual carriageway, is due to be completed in time for Liverpool's Capital of Culture year in 2008, though the full regeneration of the area is expected to take longer.

    The former Littlewoods building will be redeveloped into a mixed-use residential, leisure and commercial site. And a science park with 260,000 sq ft for offices and laboratories is planned for the former MTL bus site.

    Deputy Prime Minister John Prescot finally gave the controversial plans the go-ahead in February.

    David Waugh said: "The significance of the Edge Lane corridor for the wider prosperity of Liverpool cannot be overstated.

    "This project will create a new high-quality gateway into the city centre, help in the drive to attract new jobs and investment and improve the local environment for people who live and work in the Edge Lane area.

    "Indeed, the project will act as a catalyst for regeneration throughout the whole of eastern Liverpool, helping to promote economic growth."

    ONLY a harsh winter of Russian proportions will prevent Liverpool's Edge Lane widening scheme from being completed on time.

    The confident prediction was related yesterday by City Council leader Warren Bradley as work started on the 350m regeneration project to transform the key eastern gateway and rebuild homes and businesses in Kensington and Wavertree.

    More than 550 houses will be built and 1,900 jobs will be created by the project but developers are still fighting a high court challenge by local residents protesting against compulsory purchase orders (CPOs).

    The 65m plan to widen the road will turn it into a full-length dual carriageway which is due to be completed by the end of 2007, in time for the city's Capital of Culture year, while the extensive development of surrounding areas will be staggered over the next five to 10 years.

    Cllr Bradley said: "I don't see any reason why the road will not be finished by the end of next year. I have been told that, unless we see a particularly harsh winter of Russian temperatures, the road will be finished by the expected end date."

    He added: "This community has waited for many years to see improvements. It is important to have a gateway that we can be proud of like other world-class cities.

    "But the most important benefit of the project is what it will do for those local communities that for the past 20 years have only seen businesses pulling out of the area."

    Cllr Bradley arrived on the building site with David Waugh, chief executive of Liverpool Land Development Company (LLDC) -the company leading the project.

    The extensive scheme is expected to bring in 120m in private sector investment for related projects and will create more than 1million sq ft of new and refurbished commercial and retail floorspace.

    Mr Waugh said: "We are confident we will have a complete highway in place by the end of 2007. Everything is in order and the only delay is in the commencement of Edge Lane West where the CPOs have been challenged by a few local people.

    "We hope that the small number of people - maybe five or six - aren't going to delay a scheme that offers tremendous benefits to the local community and to Liverpool as a whole."

    Preliminary work is being carried out today on Edge Lane Central, close to the former JCM Building on Edge Lane, with major digging work due to start on the road in the next fortnight.

    Congestion on the road is to be expected.

    500k extra for Edge Lane firm
    May 10 2006
    By Sam Lister Daily Post Staff



    THE company behind demolition of thousands of homes in Edge Lane was last night criticised because it is to get an extra 500,000 of public money.

    Liverpool Land Development Company will use the cash to carry on its work over the next two years.

    The organisation is made up from the North West Development Agency (NWDA), English Partnerships (EP) and Liverpool City Council, which has applied for the extra funding.

    But Liberal Party leader Steve Radford claims it could easily find the money itself by dropping parts of the Edge Lane demolition scheme.

    He said: "It is 500,000 at the moment but how do we know that is not going to keep rising?

    "We should not be signing blank cheques, particularly when the money could be found quite easily.

    "They could reduce their costs and still achieve their objects by re-drawing the Edge Lane scheme.

    "There are thousands of homes that are needlessly being demolished under these plans, homes that people do not want to move out of.

    "Instead they want more public money. People are deeply unhappy with this scheme, which is one of the main ones it is responsible for."

    Work started last month on the contentious Edge Lane scheme which will widen the eastern gateway into the city and see 550 homes built.

    Many residents have protested against the changes after the compulsory purchase of 490 homes and 24 businesses.

    In April 2003 the city council was awarded 1.5m of European funding to fund LLDC, just under half of the total operating budget.

    It has been behind 30 projects in the city but its most high profile are Edge Lane and Liverpool Science Park, which are still a long way from completion.

    Liverpool City Council pays for its operating costs and asked the Government Office North West to apply for European funding on its behalf, but was initially told it was reluctant to step in because it felt its budget was sufficient.

    But it has now agreed to hand over the 500,000 over a two year period.

    The council has also had to increase its own contribution to LLDC by an extra 250,000 a year between now and 2008.

    A spokesman for the city council said: "This money is to provide support for all of LLDCs projects, not just Edge Lane.

    "The European money is not for meeting housing costs."

    LLDC, which was set up in 2003 and runs until 2009, insists money earmarked for capital projects such as Edge Lane could not be used to fund other costs.

    A spokeswoman said: "LLDC is very pleased that Liverpool City Council is giving due consideration to the continued support of LLDC in delivering a range of high quality commercial and mixed use schemes across Liverpool.

    "LLDC has worked consistently to deliver its business plan projects which have been endorsed by all its funding partners.

    "To date, LLDC has created over 3,000 jobs, delivered over 45,000m2 of new commercial floorspace and has attracted 313m of private sector funding to Liverpool.

    "Urban regeneration projects are often complex and long term and it is excellent news that Liverpool is able to make a long term commitment to economic growth in the Strategic Investment Areas."

    High Court bid to stop demolition


    Developers wants to spend 350m regenerating the area


    A 350m plan to demolish hundreds of homes in Liverpool is a "return to the bad old days of 60s' clearances," the High Court has heard.

    Resident Elizabeth Pascoe, of Edge Lane, was beginning a legal fight against plans to bulldoze hundreds of homes to build a dual carriageway.

    Mrs Pascoe, 59, faces losing her Victorian terraced home after a compulsory purchase order (CPO).

    She is asking the judge to quash the decision by Deputy PM John Prescott.

    'Social cleansing'

    Her counsel Robert McCracken told Mr Justice Forbes the scheme had been described by Liverpool Wavertree MP Jane Kennedy as "a form of social cleansing."

    About 400 residents could be forced to sell their homes.

    Mrs Pascoe, backed by many neighbours who are refusing to move, believes the decision by Mr Prescott, when he was responsible for planning control, will destroy the community.

    Mr McCracken told the court: "Not surprisingly, the scheme is controversial, both locally and nationally. Critics say it is, in architectural terms, a return to the bad old days of the 1960s' clearances."

    He added that the process which allowed the scheme was legally flawed.

    Human Rights

    Mrs Pascoe argues the Urban Regeneration Agency, which issued the CPO operating under the name English Partnerships, did not have power to issue it for her home, and Mr Prescott, in approving it, misdirected himself in law.

    She also claims that the CPO breaches Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which protects the right to respect for family life and home.

    The Government and English Partnerships argue that the scheme is intended to revitalise a deprived area and provide an attractive entrance to the city.

    The court hearing is set for two days with a reserve judgement expected.

    I do want this regeneration to take place without delay. Can it continue without demolishing the homes in question? To restore the old Victorian homes makes sense, but the rest? I wonder.

    Yes, and more people dying of hypothermia.

    New house can be made to look like anything you want to. There is no sense is keeping crap energy inefficent buildings. It is cheaper to demolish and build proper houses.

    If you go on Google Earth or something like that, it is clear that the Grand Victorian homes on Edge Lane are inadequate for families to live in. But, the street running behind both sides of Edge Lane (thats Royston Street and Toft Street) can be pulled down so that Edge Lane homes can have gardens and also off street parking. If this were to happen, the homes would be desirable as there would be space to the back of them. If so desired, the houses on Stamford Street would also recieve gardens too.

    Now, As for the junction with Durning Road and Holt Road, I would remove it completely and close off the two roads. As Holt Road is a shopping street, I would pedestrianise it and create a place where the community can both meet and take pride in. Holt Road could be home to so many shops, bars and restaurants if it was pedestrianised and refurbised. The traffic would be diverted down Needham Road and Botanic Road. This might mean a little diversion if you are wishing to use Tunnel Road, but overall, this would be a better plan. Besides which, Edge Lane is wider at Botanic Road and so Rush Hour delays would be reduced.

    Thats what I would do anyway. This area needs to be conserved. Not reduced to rubble. Speacking of which, weren't there plans to make this part of Edge Lane into a conservation area???

    There was a counter-proposal that involved only the demolition of the houses necessary for the road widening but it was not accepted. This scheme is more about providing an attractive gateway into the city for the visitors to the European Capital of Culture 2008.

    PS. The Holt Rd/Cameron St area is to be demolished in a few years time if John Prescott's other proposals go ahead.
