Wirral Council will hold a public meeting to discuss regeneration plans for the Mersey Coast between Rock Ferry and Eastham Country Park.
The Mersey Coastal Park Strategy is a £10m programme designed to regenerate 6.5km of coastline. The council is working with the Royal Mersey Yacht Club on plans to redevelop their land, including a 100-berth marina which will create 24-hour access to the River Mersey and boost the club's aspirations to host national and international sailing events.
The Mersey Coastal Park Strategy is based around six signature projects which will improve access to this long neglected stretch of coastline. The projects are:
- Rock Ferry Waterfront Regeneration Scheme – Led by RMYC
- Rock Park Conservation Area and Esplanade
- Shorefields Community Park
- Newlands 2 Bromborough Landfill Site
- Wirral International Business Park
- Eastham Country Park
The public meeting will offer the public the chance to find out more information and give their views. The event will take place this Friday, 22 January, from 5pm to 7pm at the large hall in Bromborough Civic Centre. Local MP Ben Chapman will chair the meeting.
