It's certainly not a low cost project but there's a lot of European funding being used for it.

Straight into the Developer's and the Call Centre's pockets.

Peel Holdings have backed out of the Wirral International Trade Centre - incredibly they reckon the discredited Stella Shiu will continue it alone with her Sam Wa company.

Two bits of news on Wirral Waters ....

Firstly the International Trade Centre (ITC) will no longer be in Birkenhead, it will be on a much smaller site in Bromborough but I believe financing is still in the hands of Stella Shiu so don't hold your breath.

Secondly, there is considerable progress on the old oil site at the west end of the docks, various contracts have been organised for two buildings.

Other notes are The Contact Centre on Tower Wharf (which isn't really part of Wirral Waters) is up and running and also the new college (which I think is Wirral Waters) is up and running and you can enjoy watching students hard at work as you drive past.

What are Peel's plans for Birkenhead/Wallasey now, does anyone know ?
Pretty big fiasco so far, just needs the cherry on the top really. Followed by a breakdown of wasted council funds, on the whole process !

1000 new homes...that should bring a lot more Universal Credit to the borough.. One would hope the creation of at least a 1000 new jobs to provide income for them. Just walking around Birkenhead town centre today was soul destroying..no wonder M and S want out.. I know its easy to be negative and [censored] off those who appear to be trying (on nice fat salaries albeit) but it just seems like promises been going on for decades.

A 1000 new house and a fund of £145 million, are they going to be made from recycled cardboard,A £145 million isn't going to go far i read the link and it says they expect a further £200 million, i expect to win the lottery each week but never do!
But they build a thousand new homes, and say on averge two people live in them = Two thousand home owners, plus cars where do this people work?

£145,000 a house/apartment seems pretty good.

Agree granny , Ive never seen one there either . Re speed limits , maybe councils should pay more heed to what other councils have found. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/12/17/20mph-limit-dangerous-costly-reverse-council-admits/

My response was ,...if everyone is hissed off with the stop start continuous journey all the way from Birkenhead, as soon as drivers hit an open road they will go faster, but overall I have never really noticed much speeding happening so much (considering I drive along most days) and a reduced speed limit won't change anything. Asked why should he spend the money on that, he said they have the budget and that by the dips on Barnston road/ Gills Lane there are always accidents. 15 years and I've never seen one. Bearing in mind, that is 30mph anyway! Some young trumped up twerp with baggy trousers trying to get his name in lights. If they slow traffic down much more, we won't be going anywhere. Gridlock all the way. He lives somewhere completely different to this area and has no idea what is going on.

Touting for votes ? Don't come knocking on my door, talking tripe !!! Grrrrrr

...and that Arrowe Park and Woodchurch Road is worse than getting through the centre of Liverpool and out to Lark Lane area. We don't even live in a city FFS !

He should make sure the trees are pruned instead before they get diseased and have to be slaughtered.
