    Question City districts

    I am new to this but I have been trying hard in the last couple of years to get two city districts (at the least) recognised by Liverpool City Council. When the council erected district signs it omitted Vauxhall and Belle Vale. Vauxhall is otherwise known as the 'Scottie Road' area and is bordered by Kirkdale in the north and Everton in the east while running into the city centre. It is often misrepresented as Kirkdale or Everton. The council signs say Everton. Belle Vale is a small area around Childwall, Gateacre and Netherley including a large shopping centre and Junior Football League. But has signs for Gateacre and Childwall in the heart of the area. But both are erased, for want of a better word, because the council says they are not areas. Rubbish! These communities are very real and evident. I want the council to change the signs! I've been down the road of writing to them and the Council Leader, does anyone want to else want to support a change in the signs or have an opinion?

    Keep trying David. The City Council finally relented and have put up signs saying Mossley Hill when only a few years ago they denied the place existed . That their signs are in some debatable locations is of course another matter.

    I'd certainly agree that the Everton sign on Scottie Rd is absurd and definitely in the wrong place. Everton really stops at Gt Homer St.

    When all these new signs were done hey seemed to be done strictly on council ward boundaries, hence none was done for Vauxhall - there is one for Everton near Toys r us which is a farce. Quite a few have been changed, such as one for Old Swan on Derby Lane near Queens Drive becoming Stoneycroft.

    There are large areas, Toxteth for e.g, with sub areas in: Dingle, St. Micheal's, Granby, etc. The subs are not recognised. You are saying sub areas should be. The original areas are in some cases rather more ancient.

    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?
