Wirral stands on the threshold of a new era in its economic history, and has the potential to take advantage of significant opportunity. The council has worked closely with all its partners to produce a five year Growth Plan with a focus on a long term vision for Wirral to understand our place and how we want it to look in the future.

We must continue to support the world-class businesses that make a vital contribution to the Liverpool City Region's economy today. Yet we also need to look to the future – and support the new sectors that will generate jobs and growth in the years ahead.

This plan will deliver benefits felt across Wirral and throughout the region but to succeed, we need the active and ongoing participation of local businesses, communities and other partners to be part of delivering significant and sustainable growth.
