Location: St Helens
This is an exciting time for highly motivated people to join the (Regeneration Service) Growth Delivery and Prosperity Team here in St Helens, to drive forward our ambitious boroughwide place making and growth plans.
In support of our vision for a better St Helens Borough, we have already secured significant initiatives across all sectors, and this is a real opportunity to work together for a better borough, with people at the heart of everything we do.
There is comprehensive town centre regeneration; in St Helens town centre we have secured Town Deal funding for a series of transformational projects and a masterplan framework is under development which includes new retail, market, office, hotel, homes, transport hub and extensive public realm investment. We have a boroughwide partnership with the English Cities Fund that proposes significant development in both St Helens town centre and the historic market town of Earlestown.
Glass Futures is the globally significant £54 million glass production, research and innovation facility that will be built on a brownfield site next to the Totally Wicked Stadium. Most recently showcased at COP 26 the new Centre of Excellence will be used to deliver industry and government backed research and development projects aimed at reducing the carbon footprint of glass production. It will also provide a platform for industry to test and trial their own commercial ideas and short production runs, both collaboratively and individually.
The delivery of significant employment schemes in the borough includes Parkside, which is a joint venture for a 230-acre employment park and a £38m link road connecting the scheme to the M6. Parkside is also the largest Freeport site within the Liverpool City Region providing a fantastic opportunity for you to work with the combined authority and national government to shape the future scheme.
Omega West is a private sector led scheme for over 1m sq feet of distribution space in Bold, which is on the boundary of St Helens and Warrington along the M62 corridor.
Perfectly positioned we are ideally placed to play a big part in our regional debate too at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse with easy access to the Liverpool City Region, Cheshire, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, and excellent transport links being just 2 minutes away from the M6 and M62.
Become part of our exhilarating journey and help build our legacy. Now more than ever, we need to drive innovative change across our services, enabling the Council to take the next step in delivering its ambitious agenda and adapting collectively to a changing world – From Industry to Ingenuity.
