LIVERPOOL, UNITED KINGDOM - JUNE 17: The Lyrics to Sam Cooke's song 'A Change Is Gonna Come' are pasted onto a derelict house in Liverpool's Welsh Streets on June 17, 2014 in Liverpool, United Kingdom. A Public Inquiry begins today into plans to demolish 271 derelict houses, build around 150 new homes and refrurbish 37 terraced properties in the Toxteth area of the City.The £15 million plan has been opposed by heritage campaigners who say that the houses should be restored. The properties are nicknamed the Welsh Streets as they were built and lived in by Welsh workers in the late 19th Century and named after Welsh towns, villages and valleys. Beatles drummer Ringo Starr was born at 9 Madryn Street, one of the properties affected by the plans.
