What is the Birkenhead 2040 Framework?

Over the last year Wirral Council has developed a framework for the transformational regeneration of Birkenhead, the Birkenhead 2040 Framework. This is a 20-year plan which sets out the most radical proposals for the town since the 1947 Town Plan.

At the heart of the proposals is the creation of family-friendly neighbourhoods with beautiful, green public spaces and parks. The plan will re-connect the revitalised town centre with the amazing opportunities along the Mersey waterfront, and will make the most of the town’s iconic heritage and buildings. The changes already underway at Wirral Waters, Wirral Growth Company’s new office quarter and market in the town centre, and the opening of Eureka! Mersey in 2022, are tangible evidence that major change is underway.

Have Your Say

We are pleased to be able to share the draft Framework for an initial eight weeks of consultation. We have produced a detailed Framework document as well as a Summary version, plus there is a video to explain the proposals. This consultation will run until Wednesday 19 May 2021. This is only the beginning of sharing and engaging a wider audience in the regeneration plans and there will be many more opportunities to Have Your Say over the coming months.
