Created to transform Wirral for the better.

The opportunity

Wirral Growth Company will bring our collective expertise together to breathe new life into the places where people live, work and play.

One of the first areas of focus for the Wirral Growth Company will be new developments in Birkenhead. Planning permission was granted in August 2021 for the regeneration of the town centre. The first phase includes Two Grade A office buildings which will offer energy-efficient accommodation to help meet the requirement for quality workspace in the town and hopefully attract new businesses to the area.

Wirral Growth Company's goals

Create new opportunities for local residents.

Increase more private sector investment.

Deliver much-needed new homes.

Bring forward new development opportunities.

Improve the built environment.

Revitalise local communities.

To achieve our aim of building a better Wirral for present and future generations we have created a modern, commercially viable organisation to help us deliver our goal: Wirral Growth Company will play a key role in boosting the local economy, providing new employment and delivering much-needed new housing.

Leader of Wirral Council

Social value – it’s in our nature

With any programme of regeneration, it’s not just looking at bricks and mortar, it’s how we can create opportunities to generate real value in the communities we will serve, through employment, economic growth and importantly through the wellbeing of everyone who lives, or comes to work on the Wirral.

We’re delighted to be engaging with the community, speaking to residents and other key stakeholders about their thoughts on Birkenhead, to find out how we can help them deliver their vision for a vibrant and attractive future town centre.

This is a key step for any successful programme of regeneration that will help shape development in the area, and enable the growth company to bring forward transformational schemes that deliver a real sense of place.
