A crowdfunding project has just weeks to go to meet its target to look into turning the Churchill flyover into an urban park for Liverpool.
The project is the brainchild of entrepreneur Kate Stewart who is lobbying the council to create an urban walkway/park instead of a proposed £3m demolition.
Kate, who also runs Made Here in Metquarter and specialises in building design, said: ‘’Our vision will deliver a public space of benefit to residents and visitors, connecting neighbourhoods and civic buildings with the rest of the city. We’ve been overwhelmed with the response from all walks of life. With creative use of low cost materials, this great scheme won’t cost the earth.’’
The Spacehive funding target is to raise £41k by April 15. If met it will trigger detailed plans into options such as planting, kiosks, cafes, lighting and other infrastructure.
