This study is an addendum to the 2019 Agricultural Economy and Land Study. The 2019 study paid specific attention to sites identified for further investigation by Wirral Council in an Initial Green Belt Review in September 2018.

As part of the preparation for the new Local Plan, a further comprehensive review of the Green Belt was undertaken. The Wirral Green Belt Review 2019, which replaces the Initial Green Belt Review, identified five additional land parcels that were assessed as making a weak overall contribution to the Green Belt. This addendum incorporates the five additional land parcels into the relevant findings from the 2019 study.
