    Default Kensington District



    A NEW fire station is the centrepiece of a £10m plan to transform a former ice rink site in Liverpool.

    It will be built at a busy road junction in Kensington if the scheme wins council backing.

    The station would replace the ageing Low Hill premises and be thrown open to the community.

    Shops and offices are also planned for the derelict area, also once the site of a bingo hall, at the corner of Prescot Road and Beech Street.

    Advertisements -------

    Modern homes for Prescot Road and nearby Lister Road are the third part of the ambitious project, which would create a new neighbourhood centre.

    It is hoped it will bring back shoppers and stop the drain of residents out of deprived Kensington.

    The site, passed by thousands of motorists going in and out of the city each day, is currently surrounded by advertising hoardings.

    The plans were revealed today by Kensington Regeneration, the organisation which has £62m of government cash to create jobs and transform people's lives. more

    That's by Howie's isnt it? Any thoughts people? Ceratinly would be great!

    Howie, this translates to:

    It is hoped that new and affluent shoppers will come to Kensington. We welcome the continued drain of poor minority residents out of deprived Kensington, but we really really really want some wealthy residents to come spend money here.

    If it means tearing down every Victorian and Georgian house in sight and replacing it with modern Bauhaus architecture, then by God, we'll do it.

    Honestly, not sure why I have to translate. Fortunately for you, British politic-speak is very similar to American politic-speak.

    I am tryin' to look on the bright side. I mean what's the theft of workers' homes and pensions here compared to the murder of tens of thousands of innocent civilians abroad?

    The British Labour Party has lost the plot. Campaign for a new workers' party here.
