Comments: Save the Banksy Rat

Copy of my comments sent to object to the CoU Application for the Bansky Building.

As a native Liverpudlian I feel that the city should embrace the 'Banksy' work.

Our city has a wealth of artistic, architectural and cultural history and this building should be added to it, not destroyed.

This building is now known as the 'Banksy building', to me, this means that people have already taken this artwork into their concious mind.

Art is not alays to viewed within the confines of a gallery.

I robustly object to any application that wishes to remove the artwork from the building.

The application should include an informative requiring the artwork to be kept and should any damage or 'accidental' removal occur, then a hefty fine would be levied - and I mean HEFTY, not a £2000 'slap on the wrist'.

Save the Liverpool Banksy Rat, a modern icon of this "Cool" City (or carefully transfer it to YHA Liverpool south wall) GB1
