A small sanctuary in the heart of the city, Bixteth Street Gardens is the last remaining green space in Liverpool's commercial district. Frequented by local residents, workers and dog walkers, not to mention the extensive animal population of birds, bats, bees, squirrels and rabbits, this space is also home to 52 large, mature trees.

This thriving community space is in danger of being lost forever as Liverpool City Council along with CTP and Kier Property, plan to destroy and redevelop the area. With the proposal of four new multi-storey buildings and allocated "public realm" intended for the site, the current green space will be cut by a third. This is, of course, if the development even materialises - all that is currently being pushed though is the complete remediation of the land! 

We need your help to demonstrate that the people of Liverpool matter and that our opinions count. Hundreds of city centre homes are currently being developed in the area; they want people to buy into the urban lifestyle and live in the city centre, yet no consideration has been given to the quality of this lifestyle - the mounting evidence of the health implications of the eradication of urban green space is indisputable. 

Please get involved with the campaign and help save to our green spaces!
