Wirral


Is that the Globe talking, the council PR department or national data base ?

Wirral is unique in the fact it's a cul-de-sac. People would have to be wanting to visit for a particular reason, it's not a road through.

Historic warships, Wirral Show, Kite Festival, Balloons across the Mersey, Wirral Museum, Pacific Road, Europe Day, Scarecrow Festival, plus a lot more, were all things that brought the public to the area but alas no longer do.

Work ? Don't know

To live... yes, I reckon it's very pleasant in many places and easy access to Chester, Liverpool, Manchester and beyond.

Sorry Fish but to me the word Wirral now only means one thing Animal cruelty. This once lovely place must be the Capital of the North for horrendous injuries or death mainly to dogs. If anyone reading this recognises the lovely little dog who was thrown off a bridge in Moreton please contact the authorities & report his owner.

Looks like another council attempt to spend £000s to attract business into the region. Jobs for the boys..I suppose they have to try...

A new Vision for Wirral
Wirral Growth Company
“Driving economic growth is a key priority for my administration. The creation of a joint venture property company – Wirral Growth Company – will bring new expertise, new ideas and new investment to Wirral. It will allow the Council to share in the risks but reap the rewards of the regeneration of key sites across the whole borough.”

– Cllr Phil Davies, Leader of Wirral Council.

Workwise its getting more precarious, now we are in Liverpool City Region we no longer have as much control over our own investment budgets, already one of our major employers is opening a new building in Liverpool.

Wirral has got amazing facilities at its disposal but it needs continual maintenance which hasn't been happening much for a number of years.

Public Loos are woefully missing which can never be good for tourism or local people that want to get out and about.

Parking is very hit and miss but I guess that goes for much of the rest of the country.

There is far worse animal cruelty in other parts of the country.

Would 'obese' people dis-courage people from coming here or anywhere else for a day-trip?

I have never seen a Trip Advisor review advising 'Watch out!! Fatties in the vicinity'?!

....and how much is this new business development programme costing ?

£ 1 billion !!!!

They've done all this before. Regeneration etc.etc. Different name, same thing.
It's tedious . Maybe they can tell us where the previous re-generation lacked and failed, who was responsible and why it was not maintained and so much money wasted.

How come it's a 'private limited company ' registered at Wallasey Town Hall ? Does that make sense ?

Come on DD, put us straight.

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10669793

Wirral owns 75% or more of the shares

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10669793/filing-history

David Armstrong registered as Director (Assistant Chief Executive of WMBC )

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10669793/officers

Christopher Harper the previous Director who was a Solicitor ? Appointed on the 17th March 2017 ,resigned on the 21st March 2017.

Jeremy....nice turn of phrase....your talking of a former employer of mine.i wouldnt quite go that far but after working for them part time for nearly 15 years and having to stop due to back problems i never even got a thank you from them. cest la vie.

Peel Holdings still on the scene? Wirral Waters and all that. Cant help thinking its another gravy train for cronies. Ok lets hope ...

Wirral has the potential to be one of the greatest places to live, from the point of view of access to coastline, views and greenspace; Livepool, Manchester and North wales all within an hour etc. Cuts to services, reduced maintenance of infrastructure, decreased vitality of small shopping areas, increased charges (most recently parking in country parks!) could certainly take the shine off the place's appeal. To mention just one problem, I'm getting a bit sick of hearing about Peel Holdings and not seeing any proof of their interest in regeneration in the docks area...

Nah, Peel have moved onto new projects in Leeds and Sheffield now. The latter is getting a lot of investment from big companies such as McLaren and Boeing in the new manufacturing parks close to the old airport.

I said years ago that Wirral wasn't a suitable site for big business because its too far from anywhere. They need central locations close to good road and rail networks.

The peninsula area and location is really unique, I'm surprised WBC have completely blown the tourist thing, even offering it as a retirement location, which is kind of understandable for WBC, considering.

I had two people from New York stay here on separate occasions, and they love the Wirral. They had never seen a sheep in a field before, and liked how North Wales was right next door (which is another matter), how everything was so compact and being so close to water on all sides.
