Does anyone know if there will be a third phase of development in New Brighton? I'm a local resident but have only been on the prom to see the development twice. I can't say I was very impressed with what I saw. As someone who has always wanted to see a new dawn for New Brighton, is this the best they can come up with - a retail park. I was very disappointed to say the least. Surely they are not just leaving us with this.

Try to delete this topic as it is in the wrong forum. Sorry about that, perhaps one of the mods can help out. Thanks.

A casino should be opening in the summer.

The empty building at the far end of the development (next to the model boat lake) was supposed to be the "lido", but Neptune couldn't get anyone interested to take a lease for that use. Council actually stuck to their guns for a long while saying it had to be used for leisure, but last I read it was to become a soft play area plus splash pool for kids.

There was a planning application in to build flats on the next to the Floral, at the bottom of Victoria Parade. Not heard much more about it though.

Last I heard the guy that owns the site between The Queens and what was Bobby's Bar has had separate plans for apartments and retail units knocked back.

This posting represents exactly what has been wrong with New Brighton for the past 20 years, negativity - glass half empty. Never happy, never grateful........don't mention job creation, the increase in visitors and ultimately an increase in spending locally, no let's just moan and say 'Is that all there is'???????? unbelievable.

Yes I thought that too, of course we'd have loved to recreate the open air pool or something equally spectacular but I've been loads of times and it's a million times better than it was, it hasnt spoiled the area at all - there's still loads of open spaces at the dips and on the front for people to do what they always did there, except now we have somewhere to have a coffee and a bite to eat, somewhere to go see a movie, Home Bargains to buy cheap beach supplies like buckets and spades etc if we ever get a summer and a great supermarket that's giving Asda a run for its money! Lets not forget the jobs that have been created, albeit for people outside the area in many cases but give it time...locals will outnumber the people brought in to work here before very long I'm sure. Nice to see the artists impression is very similar to what we have there now, it's an attractive development. Let's hope Wirral Waters doesn't take as long to get off the ground as Marine Point did with all the opposition.

I think that these developments are the best thing to happen to New Brighton for years. After so many promises and let downs , we're seeing a lovely new theatre , a supermarket , cinema and much else.
Give us a good summer(I know , I know)and we may see loads of people going to New Brighton and spending money . As missj said the waterfront & the dips are still there - with free parking - yes - free parking. For once , I think the glass is full. Let's enjoy it!
