that is pretty cool, is this area getting better, when i was last there it was a tad run down, the bridge was stuck in the air (for over a ayear i think) and hearby there was a boat that had sank at the dockside on the left if u was heading towards seacombe way over the bridge, what is this area like now

Peel holdings (who own all of the docks) have just put in a planning app to redevelop it and the surrounding land.

http://www.wirral.gov.uk/Planning/plansthumbs.asp?appnum=20085384&wanted=Plans

There's 300 pages of it but it looks like the building is going to be rebuilt with a resturant on the ground floor. There's also going to be a hotel over-looking the docks.

Interesting

If they do it like this Image Click me I'll be well chuffed - leaving what structure is there now standing and filling in the gaps with light and glass.

More to the point, where will they all go? The council keep knocking down/renovating all the derelict buildings, and not providing adequate affordable or suitable housing for them...

Those plans will ruin the building cause the building is in a Right mess although it be nice i dont think it should have a lick of paint and be refurbished and leave it as Listed building which it is.. I dont think Jesse's plans was to turn his building into a resturant..
