A PUBLIC meeting will take place later this week to discuss plans for the proposed 10m regeneration of part of Wirral's coastline.

Friday night's meeting will give people the chance to learn more about The Mersey Coastal Park Strategy, which is designed to transform 6.5km of coastline between Rock Ferry and Eastham Country Park. The area has long been neglected.

The scheme incorporates the Royal Mersey Yacht Club's plan to redevelop its land, which includes the derelict Admiral Pub, to provide members with improved facilities and a new clubhouse capable of hosting national and international sailing events.

The overall strategy is based around six projects which will improve access to this long neglected stretch of coastline.

Among them are plans to refurbish the pier and make significant improvements to the esplanade as well as reclaiming Bromborough landfill site as a green space.

Friday's meeting will take place in the large hall of Bromborough Civic Centre from 5-7pm. It will be chaired by Wirral South MP Ben Chapman.

Central to the plans is the need to improve links from the coast back into the communities of Rock Ferry, New Ferry and Port Sunlight by creating new access routes including a new entrance and exit route to the A41 bypass from the yacht club.
