Liverpool is a city rich in history, particularly along the waterfront which played a vital role during the 18th and 19th centuries, but has now lost its status as a UNESCO World Heritage city on the back of progress made through Everton and the Bramley Moore Stadium project. .
The city of Liverpool has lost its place in the World Heritage List.

The stadium development project won unanimous approval from the UK government back in March, with the £500m project approved and Everton set to move into their new home for the 2024-25 Premier League season.
But the Bramley Moore docks, which have played such a central role in the history of Liverpool – and the UK as a whole – will now be lost in the annals of history, although many would say that’s not a bad thing at all.
Everton plan to help advance at Liverpool
In February of this year, City Councilor Joe Hanson gave an impassioned speech at a planning committee meeting to defend the development, which was estimated to deliver a £1 billion boost to Liverpool’s economy with 15,000 jobs created total of 12,000 of which come via the construction phase of Everton’s new land and local projects. other associated with it.
“Our heritage in Liverpool – and certainly to me from North Liverpool who had parents shipping on those docks for 10 or 12 months at a time, brothers who went to sea, friends and family who worked on that dock or served that dock – are historically significant. For us, they should not be allowed to stand in the way of progress.
We’re actually talking about a pier that was, in fact, a coal yard. A very important coal yard at the time, but it is a coal yard nonetheless. I think Everton in terms of looking at issues to preserve the heritage within this complex is commendable, and I’m very happy that they are willing to spend a lot of money protecting the legacy of Liverpool’s north pier.
There was great consternation from historic England over the dock wall. This isn’t the first time I’ve said it, but the dock wall was built for one reason and one reason only, to keep the people of north Liverpool away. The people on the other side of the wall were dying of starvation, they were dying of cholera, they were dying of typhoid. The dock wall prevented them from accessing anything that would help them survive. Part of this dock wall was built by Napoleon’s prisoners of war, and slave labor. Napoleonic prisoners of war died building this wall, everyone in historic England falls to protect something, or part of something, that was built by forced labor – who died in the process. Are we proud of that? Of course we are not, but it is part of our heritage.
The impact Everton will have in bringing this stadium to Bramley Moore will have an enormous impact on the people of North Liverpool and the wider areas of Liverpool and the North West. We’re talking, and Historic England is talking about denying or trying to deprive a field of employment – not just hiring but good and good employment. ” Full quotes can be found here

Liverpool Mayor Joan Andersen reflected similar sentiments in the wake of the UNESCO decision on Liverpool’s status, saying:
“I am deeply disappointed and deeply concerned by this decision to remove Liverpool’s World Heritage status, which comes a decade after UNESCO last visited the city to see it with their own eyes. Our World Heritage site has never been in better shape having benefited from hundreds of Millions of pounds of investment across dozens of listed and public buildings.
We will work with the government to examine if we can appeal but whatever happens, Liverpool will always be a World Heritage City. I find it incomprehensible that UNESCO would prefer Bramley Moore Dock to remain a desolate wasteland, rather than make a positive contribution to the future of the city and the future of its inhabitants.”
History will remain an important tool for keeping the past relevant and an incredibly useful tool for educating future generations, but in the case of Everton and Liverpool, progress should be most important.
More jobs, more money in the city’s coffers, more tourism, and more local purchasing power in the city’s supply chains (an estimated £225m increase) will help propel Liverpool forward again, and there is probably no better way to honor it than that of Bramley Moore Basins. .
