Green Councillors Disappointed to Miss Out on Award.
Liverpool Green Party have applauded the residents and businesses of Lark Lane on their recent nomination as a ‘Great Street’ at the recent Academy of Urbanism Awards. The iconic Liverpool street narrowly lost out to another entrant in Walthamstow, London.
Green Party Councillor for St. Michaels, Tom Crone said:
“To be nominated for this award, only goes to show what we’ve always known; the people and businesses of Lark Lane make it a Great Street. The fact that we didn’t win on this occasion, doesn’t take that away. I’m positive the pride we all have in Lark Lane will just grow after this.”
The awards, held in London last night, recognised Liverpool’s Lark Lane as one of the best areas in the country in areas such as local character, amenity, environmental sustainability, and community health and wellbeing. Lark Lane, which houses some of Liverpool’s best independent restaurants and bars, has always been a favoured haunt of Liverpudlians from across the City.
“I’m engaging with local residents to look at more ways to improve all of the streets in St. Michaels; as a politician, that’s part of my job. As candidate for Metro-Mayor I know that the city is known for its sense of community and my campaign is hoping to replicate this right across the Liverpool City Region, bringing residents, communities and Councils together for a fairer deal in future,” added Councillor Crone.
“Right now, here in St Michaels, we’re all disappointed but we’re also immensely proud.“
