Wirral Council have recently revealed plans for huge regeneration across the area. Council led Wirral Growth Company will seek investment for the scheme from a range of global investors and developers. The Wirral is a great location with much to offer. It is also in need of vital regeneration to improve prospects and create jobs for local people and create a better living environment with more leisure and retail services.
What will the project involve?
The project will focus on redeveloping several areas along the Wirral. Over a 15-year period, hundreds of jobs will be created as well as new homes and commercial enterprises. Some of the proposals for the project include:
- Redevelopment of Woodside waterfront into a global destination for leisure and culture
- High quality commercial and residential developments in New Brighton
- Residential, commercial, and leisure projects in Bebington, Moreton, and Seacombe
- New retail, civic, and leisure developments in Birkenhead town centre
Following on from recent success stories in nearby Liverpool and Manchester, the Wirral looks set to become a global destination for business and tourism.
A partnership between the private and public sectors
Through the Wirral Growth Company, the Wirral regeneration plan will be proposed to prospective investors in the private sector. Council owned land and buildings will be combined with privately funded investment to create a better Wirral for all its residents. Wirral residents have often felt neglected next to their prosperous neighbours across the Mersey. This looks set to change when the Wirral regeneration plan gets underway.
