Liverpool stripped of World Heritage status with Everton's Bramley Moore Dock stadium project cited as reason

Liverpool has been stripped of its UNESCO World Heritage status because of developments on the city’s waterfront, including Everton’s new stadium at Bramley Moore Dock.

The decision was made following a vote by members of UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee in China.

A report in June by the committee said developments on the city’s waterfront had resulted in “irreversible loss of attributes”.
