    Default Land by Stealth at the Docks Again

    British Waterways Are At It Again - Land By Stealth

    Application Number 06F/2292 Backfill of West Waterloo

    Dock was rejected on 10th October 2006, after widespead protest. British Waterways have now subitted application number 06F/3125 to move the proposed canal

    to one side of the temporary partially in-filled Trafalgar Dock.

    This is seen as Brtish Waterways, backed by Peel Holdings, stacking up dominoes to

    keep Trafalgar Dock permanently in-filled to gain lucrative land and eventually have West Waterloo Dock filled too.

    British Waterways have made the

    planning application, however it is clear that MDHC/Peel Holdings are pulling the strings of this application. It disguises the canal links true purpose,

    which is a land by stealth strategy.

    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?

    Forgot to mention. Please will you object to this proposal as it is the thin end of the wedge.
