We want as many people as possible to attend as this needs to be high profile given local elections and planning committee are approaching. This is not just an issue for the local residents but the whole of Liverpool and wider a field as green space in Liverpool is rapidly becoming an urban jungle with mass developers putting bricks on any available green space all trying to buy a piece of capital of culture and reap the rewards, destroying green space and wildlife havens in their process of making profits. The prom is a beauty spot not just for local residents but for visitors from outside Liverpool, lets keep it as natural as possible and enjoy it along with the wildlife, not destroy it by clearing the site and chopping down trees and habitat of nesting birds.
Please support this important campaign, forward this to anyone who may be
interested (as many as possible). Also if anyone has any ideas of how the garden festival can be used and funded let us know i.e. government funding/grants of
certain environmental projects? environmental big businesses etc?- this is a big
issue as the developers have the benefit of mega financial backing (and at a
recent meeting said they were utilising some national funding re developing garden
areas, so if they can do it maybe someone else with better ethics can?) .
Environmentally friendly suggestions have included:
- Eden type Project -will certainly attract visitors and enhance capital of culture
- Environmental Project involving education where schools can come to do their
- Large garden type centre like stapley water gardens attraction, maybe council can
grow their own plants for the city green spaces roundabouts etc instead of
purchasing them externally- school kids could be involved in this as part of
their practical education.
We want people to do as much as they can, write letters to councillors, MPs local
Once its gone its gone and trees are being chopped down fast.
