Birkenhead Town Centre Regeneration


Entrant's Summary: In 2019, Wirral Council and Muse Places formed a joint venture, the Wirral Growth Company (WGC), to transform Birkenhead town centre for its residents. Since then, Stantec has supported WGC in developing the scheme and driving stakeholder engagement to deliver their vision. Over the next 15 years, WGC aims to create a sustainable neighbourhood with a commercial heart, transport and leisure enhancements and new green spaces. This application was the largest to be submitted in the North West during the pandemic and the planning permission will turn the fortunes of the town centre around, delivering new jobs, new homes, a social value charter, biodiversity net gain and environmental benefits.
