Strategy of Liverpool City Council for the reactivation and reuse of Wellington Rooms

The Wellington Rooms is a neo classical building on Brownlow Hill. Designed by Edmund Aikin and built in 1816, it was a subscription hall that was popular with the well off in Liverpool, where meetings and dances were held. I only recall it as the Irish Centre which closed in the 1990s.

It’s now in a shocking state and requires immediate attention. I sometimes wonder if buildings like the Wellington Rooms are placed in managed decline (the irony), in the hope that it will eventually collapse and be replaced with student accommodation. That was a joke. Students are very welcome and the more the merrier. I was just repeating a negative cliche by some in the city.
