Stop the zip wire


The proposed Zip wire from St John's Beacon to Liverpool Central Library will destroy the oasis of calm in our city centre which is St John's Gardens; dishonour the people who died for our Country who are remembered there and ruin the visage of a Grade 1 listed building.

This is the wrong site for a zip wire. If it goes ahead, screaming thrill-seekers will fly over memorials to our war dead, and victims of Hillsborough and road traffic accidents.

That part of Liverpool is a vital part of our cultural heritage and we need to protect its appearance and its buildings. This zip wire will put visors off from going to the Museum; Central Library and Art Gallery. It will create noise and disturbance in an area that people wish to use for quiet relaxation and study.

On Tuesday 30th June 2020 the plans were passed by Labour councillors on the Planning Committee, but Liverpool City Council can still say no to having the zip wire attached to Central Library.

We are calling on Liverpool City Council to stop this project and maintain the integrity of the historical offer of our City.
