Have Your Say On Wirral's Local Plan For 2020 – 2035

Have your say on the local plan

Wirral Council has submitted a Local Plan Action Plan to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government.

The new Local Plan for Wirral is an important document which will help to shape the future of the Borough. The new Plan will set the long-term vision, objectives and policies for the Borough over a 15 year period between 2020 and 2035. The Plan will set the context for and help drive the regeneration of Birkenhead, it will support appropriate housing growth, encourage new employment and help protect our natural and heritage assets.

Following approval at a special meeting of Cabinet and an extraordinary meeting of full Council, Wirral's Issues and Options Local Plan 2020 - 2035 was approved for public consultation.

It can be accessed via the Council website

Use the website to have your say on Wirral Council’s proposed plans for development and regeneration in the borough.

Please have a look at it. There is much paperwork, but the important part is the Issues and Options report, especially for us as a Wildlife Trust, sections 4, 7 and 8.

Consultation will commence on Monday 27 January and run for 8 weeks until Monday 23 March.

All documents relating to the Local Plan will be available on the website for comment when the consultation commences.

Getting the right policies in place now will help to defend wildlife in the future.

Please read and respond, either directly via the Council consultation, or by sending comments to

Please send anything to us by end of February, as our volunteer team and the Planning Officer at Cheshire Wildlife Trust need time to put our response together before the consultation ends.
