The World Heritage Committee of the World Organization for Culture and Education, during its 44th virtual session in China, decided to remove the port area of ​​the city of Liverpool in the United Kingdom from the World Heritage List, distinguishing global historical features due to the loss of valuables.

UNESCO, in its report, follows concerns raised in 2012 over the proposed development of the abandoned ship Perth near the city center, which the UNESCO Commission has determined is “detrimental to the credibility and integrity of the site”.

The Everton Football Club Stadium, which proposes new additions to the city’s waterfront, is scheduled to open in the 2024-25 season as it appears taller and covered with glass and blocks the view of the city’s monumental buildings.

* Historical significance of Liverpool

Liverpool was added to the World Heritage List in 2004 in recognition of its role as one of the world’s leading trading centers in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as well as pioneering Mooring technology, transport systems and port management, and is a historic maritime city.

According to media reports, Liverpool’s mayors are dissatisfied and disappointed with the news and may consider the appeal.

Some pictures show the port of Liverpool before and after construction, as it retains its historic character before the massive construction that directly observes the port.

* Other labels have been removed, others have been added to the traditional list

The Arabian Orix Sanctuary in Oman was the first UNESCO to cross the border in 2007 following fears of poaching and habitat degradation.

In 2009, the Elbe River Valley in Dresden, Germany was removed from the heritage list after the construction of the Waltzloschen Road Bridge across the river.

The United Nations began compiling a list of World Heritage Sites in 1972, initially naming 12 sites.

These sites include Yellowstone National Park in the United States and Ethiopia’s Cave Churches in Lalibela.

Today, more than 1,100 sites are listed in 167 member countries, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe.

Recent additions include De Wahibunamu Park in southwestern New Zealand, the world’s only alpine parrot, and a rare and dangerous attack, a large unmanned bird.
