World Heritage not a factor in Cloud demise

  • Comment

Your article 'World Heritage status scuppers Alsop's Cloud' (AJ 22.7.04) is misleading. The press release that announced the decision not to progress the scheme gives a clear explanation of the reasons and the financial challenges facing the scheme. No blame whatsoever is attributed to the recently awarded World Heritage status.

Liverpool's historic environment provides an extraordinary opportunity to help the city's regeneration and I am disappointed that the AJ continues to portray it otherwise.

Malcolm Cooper, director, English Heritage (North West region)
