This assessment is an addendum to the 2019 Wirral Landscape Sensitivity Assessment. The 2019 Assessment 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 provides an assessment of the extent to which the character and quality of the landscape of these additional five land parcels would, in principle, be susceptible to change as a result of the introduction of built development.
