Maritime Hub – Wirral’s new Innovation Centre

Yet more about improvements to the local economy, this time the Maritime Hub Innovation Centre at Four Bridges.

 

I have blogged about this in past weeks but now have a good video clip that explains more.

 

I drive past this site every day and can see what is happening.  Things are starting to come together and this new training and knowledge centre will no doubt become an important driver for the higher tech / higher quality jobs that are the future of any major economy.

 

Peel Holdings, who own the site, have a strategy to develop the Mersey basin.  Both local and national government have latched on to the possibilities here and there actually seems to be some joined up thinking going on.  The possibilities to redesign the city region’s economy are immense.  This Maritime Hub will no doubt play an important part in supplying the training and support needed to achieve this.

What is Wirral Waters?

A client has just been to view 3 of our investment properties currently on the market.  They are all in an area close to East Float in Birkenhead.  After showing her the houses we chatted about what was happening locally and I was surprised to hear she was unaware of Wirral Waters.  So what is Wirral Waters and how will it affect you?

Wirral Waters is Peel Holdings plan to develop the Wirral side of the Mersey into an international trade and development area.  Allied to that are plans to also build a technology and innovation centre, with the whole thing centred around the East and West Float areas between Wallasey and Birkenhead.  It will be Europe’s biggest building site during construction and will transform the Wirral when complete.

I have attached a video link which explains things in slightly more detail, although there is much more about Wirral Waters available on-line for those who want to know more.
