Community Land near Collingwood House – Submission to Council

Recently Liverpool City Council has proposed to re-allocate the land between Liverpool’s Historical Collingwood House and the Liverpool Regional Museum  from ‘Operational Land’ to ‘Community Land’.

You can view Liverpool City Council’s Public Notice to re-allocate here.

I have made a Submission to Liverpool Council in support of the re-allocation and detailing my proposal for it’s use for and by the community. Please click here to view my submission.

Unfortunately, we are up against the possiblity that developers and business groups will also petition council with submissions. If we want to secure this land as a community space (even if you invisage something that I have not included or something different!) we still have to submit in support of the proposal. Or run the risk of losing out to those in favour of it remaining ‘operational’ land. Please help us gather numbers to secure this proposal in favour of our community!

If you would like to help create a community space on this land, celebrating our common and rich local history, you can do one of the following:

  1. Print off a copy of the letter here, fill in you address in the top right hand corner, place your name at the bottom and sign and send as per the address I have there for the General manager of LCC.
  2. Contact me via the details listed on the Contact Signe page and I can list you on a petition in support of my submission.

The deadline for this submission is December 3rd 2008.

Together we can build a wonderful community celebrating our rich history and making new places in which we can do so.

    I look forward to feedback regarding this submission. I know that many people took the time to petition LCC in regards to this and I see great potential. Please keep us informed.

    What a terrific result, thank you to you and the community for supporting my submission, there were a total of 95 Submissions received in support and 68 were from a standard template (thank you, thank you to those who took the time and effort to make this happen) the majority of comments received stated that the reclassification was supported as it will: *Preserve the heritage value of the precint, *Retain the existing amount of Public open space * Preserve the area for its European and Aboriginal significance *retain view to and from the site and * Allow the site to become a tourist destination.
    When we now include that the $160,000 Rudd dollars will be used to begin refurbishment and repair of Collingwood House WE DID GOOD!!!! Well done to all.
