Planning permission granted

The Wirral Growth Company (WGC) submitted a planning application to Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council in 2020 to bring forward the regeneration of Birkenhead town centre.

This planning application was informed by a proactive two-stage consultation process, with planning permission granted in August 2020.
The approved scheme will seek to build on the town’s existing strengths, assets and maritime location, to create a dynamic, modern centre, with a focus on delivering a new commercial quarter and residential neighbourhood for Birkenhead.

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. The first phase is currently under construction and due to be completed in Autumn 2023.
