Great news! Planning has been granted for the second phase of our New Ferry regeneration project. 

On Thursday 18th April, Wirral Council’s planning committee unanimously approved plans to create 43 affordable homes on the site of the Woodhead Street car park and a former Co-op store on New Chester Road. 

Councillors praised the development for its new green spaces and energy-efficient homes.  Additional improvements to the high street will be carried out by Wirral Council which will revitalise the area.  

As part of the project, 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 new homes will be constructed by M&Y Maintenance and Construction and will be available for affordable rent thorough Regenda Homes, and Rent to Buy through Redwing.   

Employment, training and work experience opportunities will be available for local people, including apprenticeships supported by The Learning Foundry. Primary school children will explore the world of work through the Positive Footprints’ award-winning Raising Aspirations Programme. 

The regeneration of New Ferry will create more than 70 new homes in total. Construction to create 34 one and two apartments across two other sites began earlier this year. 

Martin Davies, Director of Development for The Regenda Group, said: “I am delighted that Wirral Council has unanimously approved the creation of the new properties. As a regeneration group, we’re creating not only affordable, energy efficient homes to the area, but also employment and training opportunities for local people.”  

Michael Birkett, CEO of The Regenda Group, said: “This is a truly transformational project that will see the regeneration of New Ferry. We’re not only building great quality, affordable homes, we’re investing in the wider community. As a regeneration group, we know it takes more than bricks and mortar to make a place thrive, and we want to work with local people and organisations to deliver a lasting legacy we can all be proud of.”
