New Ferry regeneration

Work has started on the construction phase of the New Ferry regeneration project, which will rebuild and revitalise the area with the creation of more than 70 new homes.

In March 2024, M&Y Maintenance and Construction – part of the Regenda Group, the council’s partner in this programme - officially started work on sites B and C; Boundary Road and Bebington Road, which represents the first phase of the scheme.

This phase of the development will bring 34 new homes to the area – 20 homes on Boundary Road and 14 apartments on Bebington Road. These will be available through a combination of affordable rent thorough Regenda Homes and Rent to Buy through Redwing, another part of the Regenda Group.

Phase 2 – Sites A and D

Planning permission has been now been granted for the development of the second part of the regeneration programme on Woodhead Street and part of New Chester Road. 

A further 43 new homes will be constructed in Phase 2, with construction work on site expected to begin next year.

Prior to this work starting, public car parking on Grove Street will be revamped, including the creation of additional parking spaces and the installation of new street-lighting and CCTV. 

The land that is now Woodhead Street car park is incorporated in phase two and earmarked for the new housing development. However, Additional car parking spaces is being created next to the new housing development, between Bebington Road and Grove Street, creating an additional 54 spaces (including seven disabled spaces). 

The new parking will be free to use for the public and visitors. This car park will have a footpath to the main high street on Bebington Road, with signposting to make sure it’s easy to find.

The existing car park next to the Village Hall on Grove Street will not change and will also be free and available for visitors to use.

Public realm improvements

Wirral Council has been granted £3.2 million from the government’s Future High Streets fund, some of which will be used to support the redevelopment of New Ferry with improvements to the public realm, particularly around the shops on Bebington Road. The aim is to make the shopping areas more attractive for traders, visitors and residents and will include traffic-calming measures, new planting and seating, additional CCTV to deter anti-social behaviour and a re-provided public car park.


Wirral Council appointed The Regenda Group as its development partner in March 2022. Regenda is an experienced housing and regeneration organisation and is delivering a housing scheme in New Ferry in two phases over the next few years.
