Your Comments

Lets hope they take full consideration of all the wildlife at St Gabrielle’s convent. And look after them! Hopefully this will be a sympathetic scheme and the houses won’t be too modern for this part of the city as they sketches we were shown were very ‘modern’ and appreciate times move on but you have to make it fit with the surroundings. Hopefully this will be a cleansing of the site and they do something with the Grecian Lodge where all those terrible things happened all those years ago. I would not want to live in that, awful.

60 Ralli doesnt look the best, does it? But still better than most developments Liverpool city centre, which has become a dumping ground for dodgy designs in the last 20 years.

Agree – Ralli looks like its been ‘lifted’ off NV in Salford Quays!

NV has there been a bigger misnomer since Posh spce?
