A recent planning application submitted to Liverpool City Council proposes the demolition of Heaps Rice Mill. Heaps Rice Mill is located in Liverpool’s historic Baltic Triangle, just yards away from Liverpool’s World heritage site. Please help save this landmark building from the bulldozer. Heaps Mill is part of our mercantile history, one of the last remaining large mid Victorian warehouse complexes left in the city. Joseph Heap founded a rice mill on this site in the 1780’s and although nothing survives of that building, the present structure which dates back from the mid Victorian period, is certainly deserving of preservation, both from an architectural and historical perspective. Back in 2006 a planning application was lodged to convert Heaps Mill into apartments. Those plans took into full consideration the architectural and historical significance of the building, unlike the present proposals which would see more of the city’s historical environment swept away.  Thank you for signing the petition and if you have time please go to LCC Planning and register your objection to secure its future.

    Liverpool is a city crammed with history a forms a huge link to our pasts. I love my city and don’t want anymore monstrous buildings like Mann Island taking the place of a building that could not only be amazing with some creative planning but is also of great historical value to liverpool

  2. angela byrne UNITED KINGDOM

    lets not make Liverpool into another plastic place the old stories told in the old buildings can not be recovered once gone.
