Urban Splash progresses £55m Wirral Waters modular neighbourhood 

The second phase of a scheme that will eventually see 351 factory-built homes installed at the £4.5bn regeneration project is progressing. 

Urban Splash, in partnership with Peel L&P, has lodged a planning application with Wirral Council to deliver the next 55 modular houses at East Float, part of the Northbank zone within the Wirral Waters masterplan. 

The next phase, comprising a mix of House by Urban Splash’s Town House and Row House designs, will add to the initial tranche of 30 properties that are currently being installed at East Float. 

Richard Mawdsley, Peel L&P’s director of development for Wirral Waters, said: “Through our joint venture with House by Urban Splash, we are bringing the very latest in sustainable housing design and innovation to Wirral Waters.  

“This much-needed second phase of modular homes will mean we can further contribute to the shortfall in local housing, well away from any green belt land, and will ensure the delivery of new homes for families, individuals and couples in a highly contemporary, sustainable and accessible location.” 

Planning applications for the final two phases are expected to be submitted next year. 

The £55m residential project is one part of the wider 500-acre Wirral Waters, which could eventually see 13,000 homes delivered over the next 20 years.  

Eden Planning is advising Urban Splash and Peel on the scheme.

Bring it on, this and the Wirral Waters One/Northbank scheme now on site, is going to make the area into a HafenCity type development, when the landscaping matures it will be impressive and surely a catalyst for more residential and infrastructure.

This scheme is so unambitious. What happened to the original plan that included a tower?


‘Could eventually see’. Never were three simple words so accurate.

The article actually says ‘will eventually see’.

Looked good as a concept 5 years ago, now average; either they have slowed down or everyone else has caught up. As dreary as Eastbourne marina

Good for people who want to live between a busy motorway and an industrial wasteland with no amenities.

“Good for people” who choose to live near a landscaped waterside and a short walk from a ferry terminal, or a bike ride to a beach, and who have a vision for the future.

Meanwhile across the Mersey, when will Peel be making a further announcement about Patagonia Place, I think they said more than a month ago a new developer would be announced in a few weeks, as discussions were underway.
