We are asking for donations to seek a judicial review of the City Council's decision to destroy the parkWe are seeking some initial legal advice, and if this where to progress we would require the money for legal fees, this is what any donations would be used for.
Where is your money going?
- £154 is the Application fee
- £770 is the Fee for the initial JR hearing
- £5000 - Costs if the JR proceeds are capped at this
This is why we have set a target of £7000
This Campaign (Save Bixteth Park) brings together local groups, (Save Bixteth Gardens, Liverpool CPRE, Friends of the Parkland) as well as several residents (Bixteth Street Residents, Hamilton House Residents, Princes Gardens Residents Assoc) and other local interest groups so we can all work together in any legal action.
We want to bring together everyone who cares about the future of Bixteth Gardens/Park, Pall Mall and the Area, and this is the best way to do it.
If you can't donate, please feel free to sign the petition - Started by SBGhttps://www.change.org/p/liverpool-city-council-save-bixteth-street-gardens
Some Details about the site from Save Bixteth Street Gardens
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 61 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 reclamation 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.
