Statement: July 21st 2021

Following UNESCO's decision to delete Liverpool from the list of World Heritage Sites, Chris Capes, Director of Development for Peel L&P’s Liverpool Waters, commented:

“UNESCO’s decision to remove Liverpool from its list of World Heritage Sites is very disappointing, particularly given the considerable investment that the city has put into protecting and improving its heritage sites in recent years.

Without the World Heritage Site status, however, Liverpool’s rich history remains and Pier Head, the ‘Three Graces’ and the city’s many other fantastic historical assets will continue to attract visitors in their millions.

Regeneration for this part of the city is vital and, like our partners across the city region, we are focused on delivering it - creating new homes, commercial space, amenities, public realm, leisure facilities and key infrastructure on previously disused brownfield land.

We will show the world that regeneration and the protection of Liverpool’s heritage can happen together.”
