World Heritage Lost

January 5, 2022 Published by Alex McCoskrie


There have been three recent articles in professional journals reflecting on the recent loss of Liverpool’s World Heritage Site status. Two have been written by WHUK’s Vice Chair and former member of the Liverpool World Heritage Site Steering Group Ian Wray, in a personal capacity. The third by regeneration and planning consultant Dave Chetwyn.

The first article is a paper published in last year’s November/December issue of Town and Country Planning, the Journal of the UK’s Town and Country Planning Association and is available here with kind permission of the editor. Town and Country Planning is an informed, regular and readable briefing on developments in UK planning and environmental policy.

The second and third were first published in the Institute of Historic Building Conservation‘s members’ journal Context (Dec 2021), and are reproduced with the IHBC’s kind permission –
