WORK STARTS ON GARDEN FESTIVAL SITE

On monday February 15th 2010 the property developers with the Land Restoration Trust began work on the Waterfront Park.They are reinstating the Moon wall,pagoda and oriental gardens and restoring the lake.Not sure if this is democracy in action (see previous post), I think our campaign group should have been able to access cash from the North West Development agency.
I think it's completely wrong that the original terms agreed at the public enquiry have been over ridden in a council meeting with no public there.Typical Liverpool City Council behaviour though!!!!
UPDATE
I have reported Liverpool City Council to the Royal Courts of Justice in London re: amending conditions agreed at public Inquiry.

WHAT'S HAPPENING ON GARDEN FESTIVAL SITE


Liverpool City Council had a private (unadvertised?) meeting,January 4th I think, and decided to give the developers permission to start building the Waterfront park with public money.This incurred changes to what the conditions to build were which were decided at the public enquiry.SURELY THAT'S ILLEGAL?

It seems to me that the developers are only rushing through the park because if they don't build within 3 years from when they got planning permission they have to apply again.

So, if anyone thinks they are lucky to get a waterfront park....think again.It's a dodgy move. It's all about the interests of the property developers and not the public.

Landlife- the park providers are actually unable to start though as their main man has had a heart attack. I wish him a speedy recovery but wish he'd reconsider what he's about to do.
