Peel to hold Wirral Waters public exhibition this week

Michael Hunt

A public exhibition is being held this week showing the final revised East Float scheme, which forms part of the proposed £4.5bn Wirral Waters project.

Representatives of developers Peel will be available to talk through the plans and the public will be able to view some new images together with a new scale model showing latest changes.

The proposals have taken into account points previously raised by the public and the exhibition, the third event of its kind to be staged by Peel, is prior to the submission of a planning application to Wirral Council.

Lindsey Ashworth, development director at Peel, said: "We have now had two exhibitions at Birkenhead Market, both of which have been extremely successful and helpful in making changes and progress. The people of Wirral have been very supportive of our proposals and the purpose of this particular exhibition is to show the public the final East Float scheme which has taken in to account their views and to once again encourage them to give their opinions and hopefully further support for the scheme."

The council approved Peel's £200m Northbank East proposal paving the way for a mixed-use first phase of the vast Wirral Waters development in August.

The Northbank East proposals are part of Peel's wider masterplan for the East Float area, which will see one of the largest planning applications in the UK submitted, comparable only, Peel claims, with nationally important projects such as Greenwich Peninsula and the Olympics and its Legacy.

Peel's exhibition stand will be open Friday 4 December and Saturday 5 December between 10am and 4pm, in Birkenhead Market Hall.
