Welcome to Wirral Waters!

Peel Holdings, owners of the MDHC, have finally revealed their masterplan for Birkenhead’s dockland. The plans are to be “the biggest regeneration scheme in the UK” and will give this area a skyline to rival any city in the world.

The plans include:

  • A Retail and Leisure quarter at Bidston Moss
  • Mixed use (residential and business) developments around the East Float and Vittoria Dock
  • Port employment would continue at the West Float and Twelve Quays
  • Around 25,000 new residents
  • Around 27,000 new jobs (!)
  • £4.5b worth of investment
  • 50 Storey+ buildings

The scheme will come to fruition over the next 30 years, but wil first need to pass a public inquiry, due to the sheer size of the plan. For the sake of the area, we can only hope it passes. Another plan like this will never come along.

The masterplan can be found here.
