At the end of last year, planning proposal 18F/3247 was submitted to Liverpool City Council by Australian Greg Malouf, CEO of Romal Capital. It proposes to infill most of the historic West Waterloo Dock, in order to build six, high rise blocks of 646 apartments, which will almost totally obscure the views of the historic, Grade II listed Waterloo Warehouse from the river and the Wirral. Heritage vandalism on a truly epic scale.

This proposal goes against all the Heritage pledges in the Liverpool Local Plan 2013-2033 and most of the undertakings in the SPD in support of World Heritage status. It seems inconceivable that it will not put the already at risk World Heritage status in even graver jeopardy.

We appeal to every one of you to sign this petition and also please write to Liverpool City Council with your objections to planning application 18F/3247 with regards to the infill of West Waterloo Dock. You can also do this online at Liverpool.gov.uk quoting the application number. 

I started this petition because…
I am a local resident born in Liverpool who cares about the heritage of our city. I am not a nimby who is afraid of regeneration but am passionate that the development has to be right. Hiding Waterloo Dock from the river view and filling in a dock which has so much history is disastrous.
