THE former Liverpool home of Ringo Starr is unlikely to be saved from demolition, after city leaders said they thought there was little merit in allowing it to remain standing.
The house in Madryn Street, Dingle, is in the midst of an area earmarked for new housing.
Discussions have taken place in the past about recreating parts of the house elsewhere, or in Liverpool’s museums, but last night there were no firm commitments in place.
When asked if he thought there was any merit to saving Starr’s house, Liverpool council leader Cllr Joe Anderson said: “My own personal view is no.
“If it was next door to Paul McCartney’s house or something you could make the argument, but given that it’s stuck in the middle of a block of terraces that have to be demolished, that has to be taken into account.”
A Museums Liverpool spokesman said discussions about saving the house “were some time ago, and we are unaware of any current plans for the house.”
