    Default Loss of Public Spaces

    Did anyone else see this in the Guardian on Saturday?

    The section on Liverpool is about half way down.

    Scary stuff.

    People don't question anything any more - that's the problem. They get their bank statements and don't question everything, they are told to pay council tax and just pay it, no one seems to sit down and work out why things are happening in Liverpool and is it legal for them to do this?

    It would be interesting to find a 'public footpath' from ancient times running through the Paradise project

    Isn't it funny when during the 80's no one was here fighting for redevelopment then and no one was commenting then. Who used Cavasse Park anyway?

    There are alot of people who write reports like this because its their job and only becuase they can compare one period in time to another, the latter being when Liverpool City Centre was a ghost town.

    Seems a little out of date. Maybe the Guardian could do a follow up in 2008?

    ]Who used Cavasse Park anyway?
    It isn't a question of who used it but why should we not still have it? It was a lovely place to go to sit down on a piece of grass by the Albert Dock which wasn't surrounded by cars. People left their offices and sat down for lunch on a sunny day.

    Where do you see a patch of grass in the City Centre today?

    The soon to be completed Chavasse Park. I'd much rather spend time amongst the new park than amongst maybe one or two people sitting on that sorrowful bench that used to be in the middle of it.
