Wirral Growth Company preps mixed-use Moreton plans 

Dozens of homes, a Lidl supermarket and an extra care facility all feature within the joint venture’s proposals for a 7.4-acre site off Pasture Road. 

Wirral Growth Company, the 50:50 JV between Muse Developments and the local council, is preparing to submit a hybrid application aimed at overhauling the Moreton plot.

Working with planning consultant Barton Willmore now Stantec and architect AHR, the consortium plans to deliver a 20,000 sq ft Lidl in the first phase, as well as making improvements to Moreton library. 

Subject to planning approval, this phase of the project could complete by the middle of 2024. 

The outline element of the application would feature 45 homes, an 80-bedroom extra care development and an outdoor community garden. 

This phase of the plan could complete by mid-2026. 

Under the proposals, the former youth centre and family centre would both be demolished. 

Wirral Growth Company held a public consultation on the proposals in February. 

Elsewhere in Wirral, WGC is progressing its flagship project, the redevelopment of Birkenhead.  

Contractor Morgan Sindall is on site delivering a £75m project comprising 150,000 sq ft of offices in two blocks.

Lots of new homes in Moreton , and sensibly many next to the train station, so can see why Lidl want be involved.

What traffic controls are going to be put in place? It’s already horrendous in Moreton, particularly trying to get out of side roads like Maryland Lane onto Pasture Road, even worse since the daft cycle lane was done by aldi causing tailbacks at rush hour

What about all the extra traffic coming out to Pasture road? Any traffic lights planned?
