Peel Holdings on verge of submitting largest planning application in the country for Wirral Waters project



PEEL Holdings is on the verge of submitting the largest planning application in the country for the next phase of the £4.5bn Wirral Waters project.

At a closed briefing to councillors the development company revealed the application could be submitted within six weeks or less.

Wirral’s councillors were told by Peel the application was the biggest in the country and many members were left impressed by the scale and ambition of the scheme.

Council leader Steve Foulkes said Peel had shown them “exciting plans” although Peel themselves have refused to comment following the presentation, saying instead they plan to reveal more details in the next couple of weeks.

Cllr Foulkes added: “I understand they are hoping to progress the scheme with a major application soon, but that is for Peel to say, not me.”

Details revealed so far show that Peel has divided the dockland area into four sectors, with two focused on port businesses.

The other two are a “mixed use” area around the Northbank East scheme which received planning approval earlier this year.

At the Bidston end of the dockland area Peel have so far said they want to create a “retail, leisure and residential” area.

The entire Wirral Waters scheme covers some 260 hectares – larger even than the London Olympics application which was 246 hectares.

The Wirral Waters scheme is envisaged to provide approximately 15,000 new homes, 27,000 new direct full time jobs and over 750,000 sq.m of retail and commercial development

Cabinet member for regeneration, Cllr Jean Stapleton, added: “They said it was the biggest application in the country.

“I think up to now we have never envisaged the scale of what they are doing, but now we think it will be absolutely amazing for the area.”

Peel are also said to be excited about selling Wirral’s virtues at the Shanghai Expo in China next year and the company was hoping to use that platform for attracting investment in Wirral Waters”

Wirral Council’s cabinet will this week consider whether to spend £28,000 on maintaining a Wirral presence on the Liverpool Council stand at the six month long “Business Olympics” which is being sponsored by Peel.

A report to the cabinet said: “Peel who are the major sponsor of EXPO, have asked that the Authority has a presence at EXPO as they intend to use this opportunity to promote the Wirral Waters scheme.”

The report recommends Wirral contributes £18,000 to the cost of the event, plus a further £10,000 for attending.

It sounds like Peel Holding are making the investment so are going out to try and attract companies over to buy the properties / businesses or whatever. If the councillors were to go, can you imagine the cries "WBC off on jollies to China" etc!!! nd once PH have done the developement it isn't really anything to do with WBC.

They shouldnt even have to apply for planning permission, they should be able to do what the hell they want it, the land they are proposing to develop would be better served with a nuke on it than leaving it as it is atm, just let them develop and bring in jobs, money, housing and give Wirral a chance for future prosperity.

I can't wait for this project to start, its long-term for many many years, and will do so much for the area!

yes the sooner the pos called the dock buildings are demolished and redeveloped the better. this is the biggest project the wirral has had for decades and when it's completed will catapult us into the future and will actually make the docks somewhere you want to go rather than avoid. if the councilers complain jobs will be lost then the million quid question is what jobs? those docks are so unused it's unreal.

its nothing more than hyped speculation, I dont know how many plans peels have submitted so far let alone planning applications for the pump house as a hotel, with the nearest projected project starting in five years time.

I do wish them well but also have the concern that until something actually gets built, it's just hot air.

Come on Peel, get some spades in the ground!
