The Map of Doom

Full consultation on demolition plans for the Welsh Streets began in winter 2003. However, it seems the demolition zones in south Liverpool had already been drawn up.

This hitherto unpublished map showing the areas of south Liverpool 'containing potential for redevelopment' was produced by the council in June 2003, presumably to cultivate developer interest. The map is crucial because it shows that the areas for demolition had been defined, before open consultation meetings took place with Welsh Streets residents. 

The areas shown in yellow are those earmarked for potential clearance. The Welsh Streets area is the rectangle of land to the west of Princes Park.
