Issue Date:- 12 May 2008


WITH its Phase 1 launch just a matter of weeks away on 29 May 2008, Liverpool ONE, the £1bn retail and leisure regeneration of the heart of Liverpool city centre, is set to inspire pride and passion into the hearts of people across the whole of the North West.

The reconnection of the city to its historic waterfront coupled new and exciting retail opportunities is already making waves amongst shoppers and retailers alike. The project is also turning the heads of national design commentators with it’s attention to detail that is far beyond the scope of most urban regeneration schemes.

With the 5 acre Chavasse Park at the heart of the development, underneath lies a much demanded 2000 capacity car park tucked out of sight to give shoppers easy access to the city centre once again. Avoiding the pitfalls of previous generations of subterranean car parks, Liverpool ONE has award-winning architects employed to ensure that walkways and stairs within the underground network are all given natural daylight flooding through a glass floor that acts as a key feature of the park itself. Already being hailed by BBC Radio 4 as an innovation worthy of awards its sure to turn the heads of those who think that Liverpool ONE is a shopping mall like a Trafford Centre or a Bluewater.    Then there’s the piazza above South John Street overlooking the park. By Phase 2 launch in September this will be filled with a throng of people enjoying coffee and perhaps a drink sheltered by a state of the art aerodynamic glass structure allowing people the opportunity to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine the city has to offer throughout the day and long into the evening.

Liverpool ONE is full of innovations such as this that reinforce our commitment to a long term future for the city. The fact that it will be appealing to people from all over the North West only goes to show that Liverpool ONE is, from the largest to the smallest detail, set to put this beautiful historic city right back on the map. So much so that Liverpool is predicted to rise in ranking from 16th to Top 5 in terms of retail and leisure offerings in the UK.


MOST break - ins can be avoided by thinking about the security of your home and building security into your daily routine.

45% of burglaries reported to the police in Sefton in recent months have been via insecure doors and windows. By taking a few simple precautions you can greatly reduce the risk of becoming a victim of burglary:-

* Always lock your windows and doors

* Keep your house and car keys out of sight, away from doors and windows

* Don't leave your keys in the back of the door lock or on hooks where they can be seen from windows or doors

* If you have an older style UPVC door ensure you lock it from the inside using the key (this type of door can be accessed from outside if left unlocked)

* Always check your front and back doors are secure even if you are in, burglaries can often occur via insecure back doors whilst residents are at home watching television

Inspector Neil Moss the Neighbourhood Inspector for Southport North East is advising residents, particularly in the Norwood ward and High Park areas, to be particularly vigilant as there has been a rise in the number of burglaries in the area.

Entry has been gained through the properties being left insecure. Laptops, computer consuls and televisions have been some of the items taken

If you have any information about these break ins or have been offered any of the named items for sale, please contact the police on 0151 709 6010 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
