As I see it Canning is the key to linking and regenerating/improving the connecting areas. Canning is the starting point, and is a relatively easy place to sort out.

I understand that the Phil have decided to stay in Hope Street and also to develop a smaller venue on the adjacent car park.

I'd prefer that, though an amazing and huge new waterfront venue would have had an appeal of its own. If true, the restaurants in the area must be relieved too.

The waterfront thingy should be an opera house if anything.

Gladstone's home which I think is on Rodney Street should be turned into a museum, which would draw more visitors into the area and show that Liverpool is more than football, the Beatles and the sea as important as those things are.

St Andrew's church needs to be renovated and the area could do with some of its larger houses to be turned into hotels, Mayfair style, bringing people into the area.

Wheres St Andrews? Parli? if so that sadly needs urgent help. Do you live in the nearby Medici Building?

I think he means the church (filling in as Medi's off to get boozed up!) on Rodney Street (corner of Maryland St). It's been derelict for over twenty years and has been through a saga of the council trying to CPO it from its neglectful owners. JMU wants to take it over if it can. Connecting it through to the excellent Aldam Robarts library building adjacent would make an great ensemble.

St Andrew's is the derelict church on Rodney St between Mount Pleasant and Maryland St. I'll try to dig a photo out.

Is that glass building Awayo? that's a good idea. I'm pretty sure the council have CPO'd the church at a cost of £300,000, which is apparently why they are reluctant to issue more CPO'S on listed buildings under threat, not good but understandable i suppose.

Yeah, the white building on Maryland where the terrorist suspects were nabbed a year or two ago. One plan JMU had was for a restored St Andrews to provide a grand entrance to the library next door but things have trundled on for so long that plans have come and gone. The last I heard was that the no mark who'd been CPOed claimed that he had already sold it. To his brother...

It was someone from the conservation dept who told me that they'd bought it,either that or it had cost them £300,000 so far. That was the excuse when i was enquiring about the lack of CPO'S being issued anyway.

Oh right of course, well it urgently needs sorting out, it would improve the area no end

I wouldn't be surprised to see an Alma De Cuba-like conversion into a bar/restaurant. Probably more financially viable than adding it to JMU's library complex.

It's going to require a lot of money to renovate that building. New roof and all.

I still think that, if the money's in the budget, JMU is more likely to use it. It would be a great space for the university to use for receptions and the like.
