New Ferry Residents Association is the new name for New Ferry Regeneration Action Group which was started by some like-minded residents and business people of New Ferry who had ideas on how our area should be improved. We wanted to promote and improve the area, including the opportunities available to people living working and visiting New Ferry

In 1999, a steering committee was formed and the group wrote and published the “New Ferry Regeneration Action Plan” in 2000. This document came about after considerable consultation with the residents and businesses of New Ferry at a series of public meetings that were held.

When the Action Plan was published, it was well received by Wirral Borough Council, who took onboard many of the recommendations contained within it. Many of NFRAG’s suggestions and goals have since been incorporated into a variety of Council plans, including the Local Area Plan for our part of the Wirral.

Between 2000 and 2006, senior Wirral Council officers met with NFRAG to progress many of the actions. Together, we set up the Wirral Farmer’s Market, installed CCTV cameras in the shopping centre, and helped to agree the priorities for the A41 Corridor Strategy which you can now see building new pavements, railings and lighting columns.

The Action Plan was revised and updated in 2008.

In July 2012, the group was renamed New Ferry Residents Association (NeFRA), and the area which it covers and delivers its newsletters to was contracted and no longer includes Port Sunlight Village or Bromborough Pool Village.


New Ferry Residents Association continues to meet on a regular basis. We hold public meetings every 4-6 months.  All members of the community are invited to come along, to hear what we are trying to achieve and to tell us what they think needs doing.

We remain the driving force behind regeneration in our community.

We are always looking for people with new ideas to help us improve our area, and for those with pots of money to help us achieve our goals.

We are a non-political group, but will work with and are willing to receive help from anyone who has the interests of New Ferry and its community at heart.

Come along to our next public meeting.

If you would like to join us, or help to deliver our newsletters, please contact us.
