In March 2017 New Ferry town centre was left devastated by an explosion which destroyed houses and businesses.

Since then there have been considerable discussions, and ideas put forward at regular community meetings, to create a viable and sustainable future for New Ferry.

In June Wirral Council appointed consultants GVA to explore the ideas put forward by local people. They have been assessing the area’s potential to establish how the town could be rebuilt, revitalised and once again become the heart of the local community. 

In September, the Council held drop-in events in the town to present some initial regeneration proposals for discussion, with the public  invited to provide comments.

These proposals can be viewed in the document below.

Regeneration plan for New Ferry

A regeneration plan to deliver on our vision for the town has now been developed. This has been informed by residents, local businesses and the views of independent experts.

The plan will provide an opportunity to redevelop the town, with new homes, an enhanced retail offer and improved economic prosperity for the local community. The plan has been submitted to the government and partner organisations to consider how we can work together to turn this vision into reality.
