    Welsh Streets - The Welsh Streets Home Group was formed in 2004 by some 20 neighbours who discovered their homes were included in what would be the biggest land clearances since the 1960’s. The Welsh Streets is an area of around 450 terraced houses next to Liverpool’s Princes Park. The fight to save them from demolition has lasted 7 years so far. Even though the government has cut the HMRI scheme responsible for condemning the area, the battle is far from over. Liverpool City Council continue to pursue demolition whilst the campaigners, co-ordinated by the residents of the Welsh Streets Home Group, pursue alternatives.
