The Assistant Director: Chief Regeneration Officer introduced the report which provided details of a new Neighbourhood Framework for Liscard: An Integrated Masterplan.


The Council commissioned BDP, supported by Aspinall Verdi and Curtis, to produce a long-term framework for Liscard in March 2020. The framework was intended to provide an ambitious vision and strategic context to drive forward and guide the sustainable economic growth and renewal of Liscard over the following 15 years.


The Neighbourhood Framework had been funded through the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority Town Centre Fund, which aimed to support the viability and vitality of town centres. In addition to the Neighbourhood Framework, the funding was being used to support a range of interventions. These included the diversification of activity to bring vacant premises back into use, public realm and street scene improvements, and a number of community projects.


The AD: Chief Regeneration Officer took Members questions and noted their concerns around Liscard being dwarfed by projects in Birkenhead and Liverpool. She responded to say that this was a distinctive offer and a key piece of the Wirral left bank project.


Members commented to state that they were pleased the project was moving forward and queried the mass transit and active travel options for the area. The AD: Chief Regeneration Officer stated that work was progressing on the initial phases of mass transit and the process would be iterative. There were outline plans in terms of the cycling network which were currently under consultation.


Resolved - 


That the Liscard Neighbourhood Framework: An Integrated Masterplan, as set out in Appendix 1 to the report, be approved as the Council’s regeneration strategy for Liscard.
