A report by the Interim Director of Corporate Services informed Members that along with other seaside local authorities, Wirral had been allocated a revenue grant of £200,000 to boost action in driving forward economic regeneration in their priority seaside towns – New Brighton, Hoylake and West Kirby.


The report outlined the type of economic activities the resources could support, and sought Members’ views on how they wished to allocate the money between the three coastal resorts and how they wanted to involve the relevant Area Forums in the consultation and decision making process.
