    All this talk of baths!

    Back on topic: aren't we in danger of throwing out the baby with the bath water?

    I'm serious! Aren't we in danger of repeating the mistakes of the '60s? It seems to me there are too many here who once again believe that all the dereliction and deprivation can be swept away simply by bringing in the bulldozers! We should have learned by now! Yes, Peel look like being our only chance of achieving that 'progress' that some of us so fervently crave, but that doesn't mean we have to sign up to their rather questionable agenda without question...

    Has anyone yet put forward what this questionable agenda is?

    It's not without question at all though is it - that's why the planning process allows for objection which is what has happened with the over 50s brigade aka the preservation trust (one arl bloke)

    Rather than being in danger of throwing out the bathwater, we are in danger of missing a trick.

    I don't understand why "Peel" should be scrutinesed any more,than anyone else? You've got to keep an eye on any developer ("Maghull developments" for example)for any tricks they might try to pull! Fair enough,sometimes they do get away with it,(I wonder why???) but generally,the normal planning process works,and this has been demonstrated to work well enough,in this thread!

    Thumbs up More questions than answers about Peel, I'm afraid

    Thanks Lindylou,
    I'm sorry if I've missed your posting saying you were from Anfield. I live on the Pinehurst estate and where our house stands was countryside until the late 1920's. LCC sold the estate to a housing association and there has been a sense of community in recent years. If this estate were to be demolished would your views be the same as your "Everton area" views?
    Ged, why bring up LFC's development plans again? If you really want to know what I think, they're wrong, Stanley Park should have never been a part of the Red's expansion planning.
    Now we've got that out of the way, could you give me the benefit of knowing your area, Ged?

    Back to thread

    Planning decision on Liverpool Waters will be delayed until after Unesco inspection


    Who bankrolled the recent LCC visit to Shanghai?

    Will
    Peel go bankrupt if the deal is off (mentioned by Peel at local inquiry)? ....If so, how solid are their companies?

    If
    Peel deal goes through who will pay for the infrastructure costs (new access roads, road widening, demolition of property etc.)? Other areas could well be affected by the proposal, Peel are noted for their manipulation of councils.
    http://councillors.liverpool.gov.uk/....aspx?ID=83903

    As previously mentioned, are Peel involved in Salford light air crash inquiry? Are their planning/building practices under scrutiny?

    Thanks to all for keeping this thread active,
    ps, apologies to anyone offended by bold type
    Chas
    another arl bloke

    I know the Pinehurst estate like the back of my hand. I went to Pinehurst infants school (now demolished) and Pinehurst jnrs. I went on to Stanley park Comp - now also demolished.

    My grandmother (born in 1905) remembered the days before the estate was built, and also when Clubmoor - down Townsend and Maiden Lane, Larkhill way, was 'countryfied' as she put it. She remembered fields and the brook running alongside Maiden lane and Richard Kelly.
    Apparently there were ponds around where the Pinehurst estate and St Columbas church is.

    Townsend lane - once a thriving shopping road is now a disgrace - derelict properties, waste land and flytipping on some of the street corners, general scruffiness and lots of empty boarded up houses in the side streets.
    It's like the forgotten land.
    There was a time when Anfield was a desirable area to live, but now it is neglected and forgotten - always looked over and ignored while other areas get their regeneration. I wonder if our turn will ever come ?

    I have to agree with a lot you say, Lindylou, particularly the empty shops on Townsend Lane. I first noticed the rundown starting in the Breck Road area in the late 70's but it's spread. I think lots of property owners were waiting for LCC's plans to widen the Breck Road/ Townsend Lane for access, could be they're still waiting. But that's just me, always looking for hidden agedas.
    Pinehurst estate looks fairly good I'm told. We live in a Boswell house that's been tarted up on the outside, mutton dressed as lamb. We voted for the demolition and rebuild of the houses, but somehow the vote went the other way. The main thing is our neighbors are friendly, kids are generally polite and community spirit is good. Pinehurst infants was a lovely building, it is a shame it had to go! There are plans to make it's site a "play area" for other neighboring communities(?).
    I take it you no longer live in Anfield, Lindylou?
    Regards,
    Chas

    The Shanghai Expo visit has brought in millions of pounds worth of orders and investment. Do you ever listen to Frank McKenna on Downtown Liverpool or the Liverpool money programme on City talk on Sunday mornings which I catch on my way to 5-a-side, I doubt it or ridiculous questions wouldn't be asked. Imagine being the only English city invited to sell yourself and then saying, nah we won't bother. Such as short sighted attitude.

    Where have I brought lfc into it again - can't see it in my last 2 posts before you mentioned it?

    Now back to the thread please

    They should be scrutinised especially carefully, because [1] they now own the whole of the Waterfront, all the way up that famous airport of theirs and [2] because they've got form for 'pulling tricks' as Chas and others have pointed out here and elsewhere. I would make the analogy with keeping an especially watchful eye on Murdoch in the media field: it is almost certainly true that Mirror Group newspapers can't say that they have never hacked phones, but they're not running an outfit that's got ambitions to take over all Western TV broadcasting too! Peel now has the BBC in hock too as the landlords of Media City - NOT in my view a very healthy situation!

    I agree with regard to the Shanghai Expo - that can only be good for the whole city, not just the land grabbers and property wheelers and dealers.

    On the Peel issue, however, I had assumed that ever since mixing with all the wheelers and dealers who hang around such enterprises as the new Museum, your head must have been turned by the experience... But no, it's just a matter of retuning your radio, it seems! Listening to City Talk is hardly likely to provide you with an objective, unvarnished account of what's going on - on the few occasions when I've tuned in I've been quite shocked to hear various so-called 'money experts' being blatantly encouraged to expound right wing economic analyses by their resident shock jocks! Anyway, you don't have to stray into the snares of Mammon... I know Roger Phillips is on holiday, but Paul Rowley is doing a grand job on Radio Merseyside in his absence!

    Believe me, realising that a private developer wants to invest their money into desolate wasteland is good is a no brainer doesn't come from radio city, nor hanging around the museum. I do however prefer to listen to people in the know rather than a few grumpy old men who if left to run this city would rather see desolate wasteland remain, no L1, no JLA, no Cammell Lairds, no post panamax facilities etc etc....

    Tell me why there's no thread regarding Maghull Developments. Remember the Josephine Butler house, Jamaica Hotel, Sir Thomas st building???

    Tell me why there's no thread on how lfc continue to be given new deadlines regarding their proposed redevelopment of the Anfield area which is leaving residents in limbo which was part of the deal in them securing Victorian public parkland???

    I know all about Peel's past, which as stated above, has included some good things for the city but i've no reason to believe that if their Liverpool Waters plans weren't continually knocked back, we may have seen something commenced on the site by now.

    Any land bought by Peel is available to anyone you know, not just them. Why don't you buy some of it???

    Egsakerly.....and it doesn't matter if Peel own the whole city....plannining laws still apply,and any proposals are open to the usual scrutiny,by interested parties!!

    Wink Ged's rattles of LFC

    Ged, I'll paste post #87 and show your lfc reference in bold letters. I recall the same thing happening in another of your posts (76). LFC mentioned again for some reason, when I told you I'd be happy to give my opinion in the correct thread, never mind though. I feel I've explained myself on your Everton area question.

    Ged's post# 87

    Chas, you brought the Everton area into this thread on post 19.

    ---------- Post added at 09:42 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:38 PM ----------

    Grosvenor's motivation was profit, so what if the means to the ends results in a better place to be. Every single developer that ever developed an area did it for profit, not for the love of the place. LFC likewise when if ever they get around to sticking to their end of the deal with Anfield. Peel took an ailing airport and have turned it round. Peel took acres of derelict land that nobody wanted and now it's the Trafford Centre. Are you up to speed on what they have actually achieved rather than the scaremongering of what they might do?

    ps. Writing in bold/capitals/different colours/larger text doesn't make your point any more valid.
    ps apologies for any offense caused by bold writing and for me taking time out to reply, the thread is still:-
    Planning decision on Liverpool Waters will be delayed until after Unesco inspection

    Cheers,
    Chas
