Beatles' Ringo Starr's Liverpool Home To Be Demolished
March 25, 2011
The former Liverpool home of Beatles drummer Ringo Starr is to be demolished after local campaigning failed.
Councillors have finally decided that the property, in Madryn Street, Toxeth, is not worth saving.
It will now be knocked down as part of widespread redevelopment in the area. The property has been facing destruction since 2005 but the decision drew a mixed reception from locals, many of whom claimed the house was a visitor attraction.
"The community in that area have been waiting for 11 years to have these houses demolished and believe they have waited long enough. I listened to both sides [of the argument for maintenance or destruction], and the majority of people in that area want us to do something about it rather than waiting with a blighted, derelict site," Joe Anderson, leader of Liverpool City Council told Clickliverpool.com.
