    Seftons Technical Service Dept has started measuring up the Queen Victoria statue that stands on Nevill Street & the Promenade. The statue is to be moved piece by piece a short distance away near to the shops in early 2005.



    This will mean a new junction at the Promenade so you can expect delays while Queen Victoria is being moved to her new home.

    I really cannot understand WHY we need to have this 'regenaration of Nevill Street.

    The pavement is quite wide enough.

    The Council are doing everything they can to discourage traffic and yet without the visitors this town would die.

    The Queen Victoria Staue is part of Southport. I have been here since 1985 (I was 5 or 6 at the time) ans one of the first things i remember of the town is this statue. It is part of this towns history and need to be saved which it will be. Where ever it is moved to it needs to be as dominate as it is now (people will object but what i mean it cannot be moved to a corner of the town and forgotten about!)

    If you look at the plans..... it is only going to be moved a few feet from where it is NOW.

    It travelled a lot further last time it was moved. Its original place was outside the Southport Library. In the town Hall Gardens.

    The Statue of Queen Victoria, designed by Frampton, was unveiled on 15th July 1904. It was moved to Nevill Street in December 1912.

    I am just saying at that age (5 or 6) it is one of the first things i remember of the town (I origionally lived in Stoke on Trent). How many other people can remember this point of interest of Southport?

    Where it is being moved to is near to where it is now. But the way Sefton work and how many times they have changed their minds of different projects. Totally ripped up their origional ideas and gone for something else?

    The people of Southport need to keep the pressure on Sefton to make sure they move it to where they say they are. And NEVER put it in storage as Southport will never see this great statue again!!!!!!

    Why move it a few feet, it's fine where it is and always has been.
    Another lame excuse for the council to waste a bit of ca$h!!!!

  9. kaybean says:14/08/2004 09:02 AM
    Does this means that Sefton council are promoting yet more traffic along Lord Street, promoted through Sefton tourism guides as a Victorian tree lined boulevard. Perhaps they should completely pedestrianize Neville Street and Chapel Street and let Southport's Lord Street become a huge car park like the M60.:(

    so the council can have meetings,free food & drink & claim expenses thereby justifying their existence (simple realy). DID U EXPECT COMMON SENCE FROM A HUNG SEFTON MAFFIA:confused:

    Does anyone remember Queen Victoria being knocked over in the movie "Mr Love".

    linda perhaps you should suggest that the council members bring their own packed lunch and flask of tea.:cheers

    why are people so angry that this statue is being repaired and renovated?

    are these opinions about our elected representatives true or jokes? Why do you elect people who you hate? Why do you complain about them repairing a statue you like?

    Can you explain your anger or is it irrational?

  15. pedoja says:17/08/2004 09:07 AM
    They are NOT repairing the statue they are moving it to make way for so called regeneration of the area. This involves narrowing the carriageway and therefore restricting the vehicular access.

    The pavement on one side of the road is going to be widened, this is really unnecessary in this day and age as the foot traffic it certainly a lot less than it was even when I was a child ..... which was much less than when my mother was young.

    It is this unnecessary move that is the cause of the discontent.

  16. IndianLady says:17/08/2004 01:08 PM
    if it is not being repaired why was it reported as so, and why was there an interview with the person responsible explaining why it needed repairing and how it would be done?
