Birkenhead town centre is set to receive a £1bn boost as the Wirral Waters regeneration plan looks to kickstart local economies across the river from Liverpool. The scheme is an extension of the Wirral masterplan to rejuvenate the area and will bring with it huge benefits for Liverpool, Wirral and Birkenhead property investment.
Birkenhead town centre has endured a tough time in recent years as economic pressures have forced businesses and residents to move elsewhere. More recently, House of Fraser announced its decision to close its Birkenhead store as the company struggles to restructure its business in the face of massive losses.
Ambitious plans will bring much-needed attention and money to the town centre and wider area. As well as Birkenhead, brand new developments in Bebington, Moreton, Bromborough and Seacombe are planned. Such a grand regeneration project will bring thousands of new jobs to the areas and much-needed new revenue streams to local authorities that have suffered from a lack of funds for decades.
The potential for growth is huge for Birkenhead town centre and beyond, with similar benefits being introduced for Wirral property investment. The planned regenerations and developments will bring much hope to residents, businesses and property developers who see Birkenhead town centre and its surrounding areas as the new frontier. Let’s take a look at some of the main developments, including the regeneration plans for Birkenhead market and Hamilton Square, and the benefits they will bring.
