Victorian Society legal challenge over zipwire


Liverpool Central Library (Victorian Society)

An application has been filed by the Victorian Society to request leave for a judicial review into Liverpool City Council's decision to allow a zipwire in the heart of Liverpool's World Heritage Site.

One end of the proposed zipwire would land on the roof of Liverpool's Central Library, a listed building in the heart of historic Liverpool, within the World Heritage Site.

The Victorian Society has applied to the High Court for leave for a judicial review into Liverpool City Council's decision to grant planning permission for the proposal, and also not to require listed building consent for it.

Tom Taylor, Conservation Adviser for the Victorian Society, commented:
