@ak really interesting to hear about these sorts of things thank for posting about it. It's important to be mindful of what's being redeveloped and why but making places like this world heritage sites feels like it's ignorant of the underlying issues and just sticking a plaster over a wound for the sake of trying to ignore it rather than trying to heal it. We need stronger and significantly more trustworthy LAs and councils, not world heritage list project creep

@nuala One of the issues with World Heritage status is that it elevates one aspect of the heritage of a place above all others

For instance Liverpool has made important contributions to things like British Chinese heritage, left wing and radical political heritage, musical heritage from Merseybeat through to electronic dance music and clubbing

These are things that come out of a changing and evolving city - not a UNESCO museum with a "lol no" approach to new development and regeneration
