    Default Gillmoss

    THE last few residents of a Liverpool “ghost town” are on the verge of being moved out after five years of hell. Liverpool council has found the £1.7m it needs to purchase the remaining houses in Gillmoss, where a massive regeneration plan has been on hold. continues...

    Sad to read Frank Hargreaves’ newsagent shop getting torched. My Dad used to take our kids there to buy their sweets when he was alive. Kev's Echo link mentions that just the Post Office remains on that block next to Shard Close, but the Red Rum is still serving pints as well. I think the snooker club is still going. That side of Stonebridge Lane is a tip and there are some ****heads living over there. Yet on the other side around Stonedale Crescent they're a cracking bunch of people and hardly any problems at all around there.

    Since this was announced Cockerham Way has been demolished and an empty row of houses in Preesal Way has gone.The remaining residents should be on the move soon and then the lot can then be demolished,our image will benefit from this with it being a main gateway into the city.

    I've notice 3 ghost towns over the weekend. A big part of Crocky seems boarded up and ready to go, Gillmoss of course too and flats near to the Buckley Hill fire station/cabbage pub.

    All the maisonettes in Belle Vale are being demolished as well.The 3 blocks of flats on the lancs (Altbridge Park) are empty and awaiting demolition as is the block of flats on Lowerhouse Lane (Langholme Heights).

    THE water vole, one of Britain’s most endangered species, is to be given a new home at a “green” business park which is being created in Liverpool.

    A team of conservation experts plan to release 25 water voles into Stonebridge Park, a business park with office and light industrial space created by Liverpool Land Development Company in Gillmoss.

    The business park incorporates lakes and watercourses linked to the River Alt and its Sugarbrook tributary, making it an ideal ecological habitat for the water vole.

    Having been bred and reared in a secure environment within the confines of Chester Zoo, the water voles will be transported in individual cages to Stonebridge, and released at regular intervals into the special man-made burrows along the park’s central waterway.

    The burrows will provide temporary accommodation while the voles familiarise themselves with life in the wild. The conservation team expects the voles to build their own burrows once they are settled, and believes the young mammals will have all the skills to thrive in the wild. continues....

    A LIVERPOOL ghost town is to be shut off from the rest of the city.
    The once close-knit community of Gillmoss is almost completely boarded up and blighted by arsonists and vandals. more

    There's been an oversite in the planners plans as the Post Office at the Red Rum is still open . They hadn't realised that there was a business still running and they were planning to take away all access to the shops. Allegedly the kind landlord of the shops wont let the manageress of the post office out of the lease despite there being nobody around to use it.

    LONG-SUFFERING residents are to have their say on a multi-million pound plan to finally revitalise a Liverpool ghost town.

    Just 12 households are still occupied on the near-derelict Gillmoss estate in Croxteth, some of which has already been demolished.

    But council officials are now preparing to consult people in the area on proposals to build hundreds of houses, flats and a football complex off the East Lancs Road.

    Community leaders welcomed the news that the site, blighted by arsonists and vandals, may soon be redeveloped.

    A previous plan to transform Gillmoss with a massive new Tesco and other shops collapsed late last year, after five years of delays.

    Croxteth councillor Phil Moffatt said: “Ultimately, the decision always has and always will remain with those who live here.

    I'll be glad too see the back of it,I can't believe they've took so long to re-house the last remaining residents considering this ugly eyesore occupies a prominent position on one of our main thoroughfares.Imagine the amount of damage that has done to our city just sitting there in its derelict state,the least they could've done was put up banners saying demolition in progress or something.

    THE final few houses in a Liverpool ghost town should be demolished by the end of the month.

    The last two residents moved out of what used Gillmoss after putting up with years of misery. more
