The birthplace of Beatle Ringo Starr survives the axe for now even though the Madryn Street, Dingle, Liverpool house remains one of 460 slated for removal by the city council.

Ringo, best known for banging drum, banged his drum in the ears of council members about demolishing the Victorian homes. Starr lived in the house for three years before his family over to Admiral Grove.

The council agreed to a consultation with the Liverpuddlian residents to “help us decide exactly which properties should be demolished to make way for new housing and which should remain.”

54 million regeneration projects hinged on these streets and when the executive board declared them a “renewal area”, it cleared the way for development.

The BBC recently quoted Starr as saying, “Why are they knocking them down? If it is economically viable, they should do them up.

“Are they going to knock out the centre of Liverpool again?

“That’s what they did before. They moved everybody to high-rise apartments outside the city and forgot to rebuild.

“I believe it’s now very nice. They even have bathrooms, which we never had.”

For the moment, the “New Heartlands” project remains on hold until this issue is resolved.
