UNESCO, Liverpool Port is no longer a World Heritage Site

At the session of the Chinese-chaired committee, the vote was 13 in favor, 5 against, and only one vote more than the required two – thirds majority. So the decision is made: from the global list via the port of Liverpool. In addition, UN education, science and culture have previously warned the city that planned urban development, including Everton Football Club’s new stadium, could “cause it to lose its identity.” .

Received title in 2004 – The English Maritime City received this title in 2004 for its historical and architectural influence. During the British Empire, UNESCO valued the city as a major trading center and valued its architectural landmarks. However, the World Heritage Commission, in a report published in June, warned that developments at the port would lose its authenticity. He cited the Liverpool Waters project and the new stadium under construction at Bramley Moore Dock. Report displeasure to the British: Thirty individuals from politics, football and academy wrote a letter TimIn June, they demanded that the city not lose its UNESCO status.

The third site to lose the title – Liverpool become the third site to lose World Heritage status since the listing began in 1978. The other two are the Orix of the Arabian Sanctuary and the Elbe Valley in Dresden, Germany.

Government: “We are disappointed” – Immediate response from the government. The spokesman said Britain was “deeply disappointed” by the UNESCO decision. “We believe Liverpool still deserves World Heritage status, given the role that historic piers and the city have played throughout history,” he added.
