Wirral Economic Strategy

Wirral Economic Strategy 2021 - 2026


  • Wirral is at an important point in its economic history. Places throughout the UK are being challenged to come forward with ambitious plans for economic renewal as part of the government’s Levelling Up agenda and Wirral provides a unique and unprecedented opportunity for positive change.

  • The Council and its partners have embarked on a transformational regeneration programme along the ‘Left Bank’ of the River Mersey stretching from New Brighton to Bromborough, with a particular focus on the creation of a sustainable, waterfront urban garden community in Birkenhead, underpinned by the Birkenhead 2040 Framework and Local Plan.

  • This presents us with a unique opportunity to use our significant regeneration programme and emerging government backed initiatives to build on our growing sector strengths, support accessible opportunities for our residents, and lever new investment to the area.

  • This new Economic Strategy for Wirral 2021 - 2026 provides the opportunity to make sure Wirral is fully aligned with this new policy backdrop and to provide a fresh articulation of Wirral’s economic and social objectives.

  • This strategy is intended to provide a high level framework for Wirral over a five year period. It will guide our local decisions on projects and programmes and inform our detailed yearly action plans, all underpinned by regular performance review and evaluation of progress.
