D.D there probably is animal cruelty in other parts of the country but Fish wanted to know our opinion of Wirral & that's my opinion. Maybe I should also mention the lack of bus services since September plenty of areas my own included have been left without buses. We no longer have a bus route to Liscard or New Brighton so have to pay more to go to the corner shop (at least it's open) .Politics aside personally I wouldn't recommend Wirral if your an elderly,careless animal lover.

I think downtown Birkenhead is a disaster area. As close to a 'failed city' as its possible to get. Despite huge sums of money spent on the 'Hamilton Quarter', it remains more or less deserted much of the time. A great deal of money was spent on an idiotic tram project, but it seems that riding on a tram is a rather unattractive prospect unless you are a tram enthusiast, and few people are.

The Pacific Road theatre DID attract people to it for various events, but that has now been shut down too. I guess it wasn't economically viable.

I am not sure if the council is to blame for this, or that it is just too close to Liverpool which is a lot livelier and just as easy to get to for shopping or entertainment.

As to 'uniqueness', I can't see much that is unique to Wirral in general. It has some nice features too. I quite like it here, but others mightn't. But I think 'league tables' of which are the best towns is a pretty futile exercise. I suspect you'd get very different answers depending on when in the day or the year, you asked the question.

Wirral is a weird place. I can't think of many places that have such abject poverty 10 minutes away from £1/2/3m houses.

Brilliant facilities, coastlines, excellent shopping within 15 minutes of anywhere and nice rural walks the same distance away.

Come on DD, put us straight.


That is actually one of the few things the Council has got absolutely right. Being a limited company reduces the risk to the rate payers should the company go bust.

The downfall of Birkenhead can be contributed to many things however going back to the build up of Birkenhead it is generally thought that its ambitions were set way too high, also the carefully planned layout of Birkenhead was virtually destroyed by the railways. However much can also be attributed to Liverpool purposely limiting the ambitions of West Wirral, something that continues to this day.

I read that one of the projects of the new 'private limited company ' is to build an hotel in Hamilton Square.. Now I ask myself, where could that be and why ?

http://www.movecommercial.com/search-underway-wirral-investment/

Areas earmarked for regeneration under the plans include the waterfront side of the Woodside Ferry Terminal, Birkenhead town centre, Hamilton Square, Moreton, Bebington and Seacombe.

https://www.insidermedia.com/event/north-west-invest-in-wirral-breakfast-2018
The panel will discuss:
•Building a world-class maritime hub.
•Where is Wirral on its 20/20 vision, and where next for 2030?
•What is the inward investment pitch, and how can everyone in the room help articulate it?
•What are the plans for tourism, and specifically the hotel and resort pipeline?
•How does Wirral become an exciting place to live, work, play and visit?

Peel Holdings are like a praying mantis waiting for dinner to come along.Filling docks in and building a World class maritime hub, a World class golfing resort and a World class hotel. Birkenhead town centre is a World class shit hole!which is a truer statement than anybody in the council has made.they should sort out the stuff they broke over the years before inviting our visiting guests to enjoy all inclusive dont go out after dark World class Wirral.

I believe Wirral Council owns 25% of the shares - who owns the rest since it looks like theyll have a big say.

Cant be a good omen for efficiency when the person mentioned at Companies house as 'person of significant importance' at Wirral Growth Ltd , is (according to company house page on him ) also a director of the company 'Edsential Community Interest co' ( the two shares held between Wirral and EP councils), whos filings at company house are already in red ink as overdue.

Damn I cant get a clear photo. Basically the middle section of that paper says

" The other registerable person holds directly , or indirectly 75% or more of the shares in the company . The other registerable person has the right , directly or indirectly to appoint or remove a majority of the board of directors of the company. The other registrable person holds, directly or indirectly, 75% or more of the voting rights in the company"

Interesting, they were talking about a 50-50 Limited Liability Partnership last year. The decision of which partner to choose has not been made yet but will happen very soon afaik.

The councils P artist has been at it again. Peel Holdings are going to look very silly with all this around them. The boats will look a bit high and dry twice a day as well.

I might as well put them all up open the window and listen to the people of Wirral gasp/groan in anticipation.
