- SQUARE DEAL FOR RESIDENTS
A COUNCIL Select Committee has called for the regeneration of part of the city centre to be speeded up.
The Regeneration and Environment Select Committee endorsed the £50m development of the Kent Street site, including the use of a half-a-million pound grant from the NWDA for public realm works.
However, the Committee called for the regeneration of the Great George Square area to be speeded up as an integral part of the City Centre strategy.
Councillor Eddie Clein, Committee Chairman, said:- "We want to make sure people living in the city centre are not overlooked in regeneration projects and that their communities benefit from the investment which is currently taking place.
We also want to see a Good Developers Charter adopted. One of the prime aims of this would be to ensure that the beneficiaries of City Centre development contribute to tackling poverty throughout the city."
The Kent Street site - now known as the East Village Development - is being developed by a Joint Venture between David McLean and Iliad. It is a mixed use scheme including residential development, offices and a new facility for Liverpool Community College.

Dolphins at halfway to New York...
WHILE the crews race hard in these tricky conditions the dolphins have been distracting them with magnificent displays. Do they really jump and show off for the benefit of others? Thanks to the fleet's great Olympus digital cameras we are expecting some stunning photographs to come from these displays.
We are now approaching the halfway stage in this 4,200 mile race. Today and tomorrow will be a critical time as we see the boats take up their positions to transit the Trades.
