MINUTES OF ROPEWALKS RESIDENTS MEETING – 18TH FEB 2016

If you have any additional comments/ changes, please just get in touch on info@ropewalksresidents.co.uk

We have had an extremely busy start to the year… A few highlights:
– Extensive campaign for the current Cumulative Impact Policy (CIP) for the Ropewalks to stay in place for another 5 years (results to be published in June/ July 2016);
– Work with Liverpool City Council and Signature Living on their new venture in the heart of the Ropewalks: Arthouse Square – achieving a great result for everyone involved;
– Active involvement in the Ropewalks CIC, focussing on accessing funding to invest in initiatives lifting the Ropewalks (in 2016, we particularly focus on Duke Street – one of Liverpool’s great streets);
– Positive contribution to Liverpool retaining its ‘Purple Flag’ status, including hosting visits of other cities to look at the Liverpool model;
– Successful lobbying for the implementation of a Recycling scheme for City Centre apartment blocks;
– Support for the REST Centre to become a permanent feature of the support network for people affected by issues such as street drinking and related issues (incl addiction & homelessness);
– Support for the Kazimier Garden to remain in its current place in the Ropewalks.

Phew…………………………. What a great year so far!

The next meeting is scheduled for Thurs. 19/5/16 at 10am in FACT.

Please drop us a message if you want to get involved or be kept informed about what’s happening in the Ropewalks.

Thanks and best regards,

To all Ropewalks Residents – New Year Message 2016

Posted By Peter / January, 25, 2016

Dear All,

Happy New Year!

Another eventful year has come to a close. And it was another challenging but good year for the Ropewalks!

Our group has gathered even more momentum, more residents than ever are involved and are happy to sacrifice their time to make a difference – and it shows:

The REST Centre has been opened for a first (successful) Summer, the bin/ rubbish situation is being tackled, co-operation between local bars and residents has never been better (although there are still exceptions…), licences have been supported which brought truly innovative and exciting concepts to the Ropewalks, we contributed to this year’s Purple Flag re-accreditation process and the consultation surrounding St Luke’s future and many many day-to-day issues have been sorted with and for local residents and other stakeholders. We can be proud.

But we could never accomplish all of this without our many partners and supporters – including local Ward Councillors, Liverpool CC officers, Merseyside Police, FACT and many more. Thank you!

Let’s make 2016 another memorable year – pushing on our defined priorities and other worthwhile initiatives for the area:

– Continue supporting local residents on a day-to-day basis and working closely with other local stakeholders (incl. Liverpool CC, Merseyside Police, etc.)
– Further pushing improvements to the Ropewalks Traffic Order
– See the REST Centre become a permanent fixture to Liverpool’s support network for street drinkers
– Schedule more community events (such as the Ropewalks Litter Pick (next one planned for February/ March 2016))
– Further improve Arthouse Square, once the new leaseholders have moved in
– Continue our work with stakeholders around Wolstenholme Square, following the closures of Kazimier & Cream
– Working with Liverpool CC to improve Recycling facilities in the Ropewalks and City Centre
– Continue our work at grassroots level and attract even more active members and continue to foster our local network and relationships

Thanks in advance and let’s have a productive and positive year 2016 – making the Ropewalks an EVEN better place to live, work and play.

Best regards,
Peter
