Could Ringo's Birthplace Be in Danger Again?

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

The Welsh Streets Home Group, which led the successful campaign to preserve Ringo Starr’s birthplace, says it fears that Liverpool’s City Council may change its mind.

In an email update sent to supporters, the group reported Plus Dane, a major housing association in the area, had submitted a planning application to the Liverpool City Council to demolish all except 42 houses in Kelvin Grove and Madryn Street.

But, they expressed concern that if the council encounters delays or disruption to their proposed timetable that they will reconsider saving the homes on those two streets, which would mean Ringo's birthplace could be razed.

It was announced last May that 9 Madryn St. was saved from demolition after an eight-year battle over whether to save the area or demolish the homes.
