Planning

Despite being allocated within the adopted UDP as an employment site, no employment development has been forthcoming. Subsequently, and despite being a departure from the adopted Development Plan, the site benefits from outline planning permission for circa 249 residential units (DPP4/22/01080). The acceptability of residential development on this site is reflected within the emerging Wirral Local Plan which seeks to allocate the site for 250 residential units.

The outline planning permission for the site identifies that an application for approval of the reserved matters shall be made to the local planning authority not later than 3 years from the date of this permission and that the development hereby permitted shall be implemented no later than 2 years from the date of approval of the last of the reserved matters to be approved. The 3-year outline will expire on 21st December 2025.


The site has been brought forward together with the adjacent Riverside Park site, in a comprehensive manner with associated infrastructure, to create a new residential area of up to 466 dwellings. The Riverside Park site has also been subject to an outline application for residential development (OUT/20/01/1881).
