Last night Wirral’s Planning Committee approved the £4.5 billion ‘Wirral Waters Scheme’, which was submitted by Peel Holdings. The planning application the biggest ever in the United Kingdom if it comes to fruition would see the Birkenhead docks skyline change dramatically, with thousands of jobs being created during construction and beyond. The site will see over 13,000 residential properties being built, with retail and leisure outlets, there will also be a huge investment in the public transport network locally to make sure it can cope with the extra demand placed on it.
A Dream, a Vision or a Reality? I sincerely hope that Peel can deliver their vision, but only time will tell!
