The £10 billion Mersey Waters project comprises Wirral Waters and Liverpool Waters, two of the UKs largest regeneration schemes led by Peel Holdings. Wirral Waters was granted planning permission in 2010 and includes mixed use office, residential and commercial schemes, advanced manufacturing and light industrial development with related training and education facilities. On the other side of the Mersey, Liverpool Waters will create a world class, mixed use waterfront quarter in central Liverpool reflecting the site’s cultural heritage.

Advanced Supply Park:

Wirral Waters will provide a supply chain location that benefits from direct motorway and port access as well as additional financial benefits such as Enhanced Capital Allowances. The site will support supply chain growth for key LCR sectors including the strong automotive offer, and renewable energy linked to investment in wind farms in the Liverpool Bay and Irish Sea.

Boosting skills:

Wirral Met College has announced plans to build a new campus in the heart of Wirral Waters Enterprise Zone. Supporting by the Skills Funding Agency, the new Campus will be a dedicated Built Environment, Skills and Enterprise Centre.

This Enterprise Zone has a planned extension from April 2016. More details here.
