City’s modern museum bid rejected
A bid for lottery funds to help finance a futuristic museum on Liverpool’s waterfront has been turned down.
The Museum of Liverpool is planned for Mann Island and will replace the current Museum of Liverpool Life.
On Wednesday, the Heritage Lottery Fund said it would not be giving the project the £11.4m it asked for, saying the plans were not detailed enough.
Planning permission for an X-shaped building is currently being considered by Liverpool City Council.
The North West Development Agency (NWDA) approved funds of more than £33m for the redevelopment of the site close to the historic “three graces” in July.
National Museums Liverpool said it was disappointed by the Heritage Lottery decision, but has not given up hope that it will deliver the project for Liverpool.
