The History of Childwall has been noted in many books, sources, publications, and also websites.
With its stunning views of the surrounding hillside, and its historical buildings, Childwall has always been favoured towards its location and surrounding history.
This website, however, has been designed because of a new threat to the 'village' area, and to highlight Planning applications which will spoil views of the surrounding areas as well as abandon hundreds of years of history within the graveyard.
It also presents the possible digging up of over 100 grave plots within the Church Graveyard. We have put this site together to promote these items:
1 - To highlight the Planning Application to build an extension on the Church with the possible loss of over 100 grave plots, the loss of the Plumbe's Chapel inside the Church, and the destruction of box pews inside the Church.
2 - To highlight the proposed plans to build 4 detatched houses on the on Vicarage 'lawn'.
3 - To show the proposed layout of the new plans for the Church Hall, including the demolition of the Scout Hut resulting in disbanding of the Scouts from the Church.
This website has been put forward because of local residents and concerned ex-pats of Childwall who have raised concern about the current planning applications and what it means for the area.
With local knowledge of the area, the author of the website has decided to construct this website. We are proposing only the facts. We are only looking at the same plans and drawings that can be found by contacting the Planning Department within Liverpool City Council.
We also believe that there have been fundermental errors in the process of this Planning Application, and we believe that details have been held back from the Planning Application which has not served the correct information in relation to the re-organisation of the interior of the Church.
From the new Rotunda, to the loss of the Scout Hut, and of course, the last remaining open space used for the Church for Summer Fair's. Can Childwall do without an open public space to hold Church events in favour of 4 new builds when the property market is very poor in the present climate.
Who can afford to buy a £300,000 house in the economical troubles?
