Key Projects in Wirral - Liverpool City Region
Mersey Waters is a £10 billion project consisting of both Liverpool Waters and Wirral Waters.
It is the largest regeneration project in the UK, completely transforming the
semi-derelict docks on both sides of the River Mersey.
The Wirral Waters project is a £4.5 billion scheme that will completely transform over 500 acres of Birkenhead docklands over the next 30 years.
The whole Mersey Waters project is the brain child of the Peel Holdings Group, with Wirral Waters being the sister project aimed at complimenting the similarly ambitious Liverpool Waters project on the opposite side of the Mersey. The Wirral Waters waterfront will consist of 15,000 Apartments, Hotel Bars, Leisure Facilities and Restaurants, all housed in a series of state-of-the-art modern towers. Once the ambitious plan comes to fruition, Wirral Waters will be an internationally recogniseable destination that will be the envy of the world.
The Wirral Waters venture alone, is expected to deliver more than 20,000 permanent jobs for the borough. Peel's International Trade Centre in Birkenhead will be a trading gateway from Asia to Europe, it will accommodate around 1,000 businesses from a whole host of emerging economies such as China, India and South Korea.
The Wirral has a rich history trading on the global stage, with some of the world's biggest ships being built there for numerous countries worldwide.
The whole Wirral Waters Scheme was given full approval by Wirral Council's Planning Committee in 2010, with construction already underway on Phase 1 of the project.
The first key landmark at the heart of this transformational project in the Wirral Waters scheme is the new Wirral Met College Campus, providing a 'Skills & Enterprise Centre' and creating life changing opportunities for thousands of people.
The future for the Wirral is on the international stage, a premier destination for both tourists and people with that entrepreneurial edge seeking for a place to eminate towards.
A place with world-class facilities, idyllic tree-lined streets, unbeatable water-front living, eco-friendly urban design, iconic architecture and an exceptional quality of life.
The Offshore Wind Farm
The Liverpool City Region is the only place on the west coast of England
to be designated as a Centre for Offshore Renewable Engineering.
With Cammell Laird already securing a significant number of offshore wind contracts and two other major companies in Europe investing in the Bay of Liverpool, the future for the Liverpool City Region is as the new powerhouse for clean renewable energy.
The region already has two internationally renowned university institutions in the 'National Oceanography Centre' and the 'Stephenson Institute for Renewable Energy'.
Along with Bromborough based 'Bibby HydroMap Limited' operating a fleet of specialist vessels with advanced survey sensors and positioning equipment, the city region is already well positioned to become the new epicentre of clean energy production for the whole of Europe.
The UK is the windiest country in Europe, it is estimated to have at least one third of the entire European Union wind resource. The current Burbo Bank Offshore Wind Farm located on the Burbo Flats in Liverpool Bay, has 25 efficient wind turbines producing enough energy to power 80,000 homes, with annual output of 315 million kilowatt-hours.
The Wirral Peninsula is perfectly placed to offer the renewable industry an excellent range of opportunities for manufacturing and pre-assembly.
