NEW FERRY TO RECEIVE METRO MAYOR'S 500,000 TOWN CENTRE FUND TO BRING EMPTY SHOPS BACK INTO USE


17 March 2019

New Ferry is to be allocated 500,000 from Metro Mayor Steve Rotherham's Town Centre Fund. Wirral Council will administer the funding which will be used to purchase and renovate empty and derelict former shop premises in Bebington Road and along New Chester Road which do not fall within the zones covered by their 1.3 million Land Acquisitions Strategy.

The Council has nominated the New Ferry Community Land Trust (CLT) to help deliver this project. The CLT will have responsibility for identifying the long term vacant properties which need to be brought back into use, will liaise with property owners and - when having acquired them - carry out refurbishments needed.

The CLT has a constitution and a bank account now set up. It already has over 30 members made up of local traders, residents and other people who want to help the venture. Members are kept informed and invited to comment on proposals, to help with other initiatives including litter picks and community clean ups and events being held in the precinct.

Anyone who lives within New Ferry and Port Sunlight can join as a member - if you would like to join, just pop along to Money Matters at the junction of Bebington Road and New Chester Road to request an application form.

 

GET INVOLVED - GET SWEEPING!

If you care about our community, please volunteer to help with our community clean ups organised by the New Ferry Community Land Trust. We meet on the last Sunday of every month, at 10am at the Cleveland Arms Pub in Bebington Road.

However, our March 2019 clean up will be one week earlier, in order to clean up the precinct for our "Into the Light" event. It will take place at 10am on Sunday 24th March.

Afterwards, the clean-ups will return to their regular date starting from Sunday 27th April. Keep an eye on the New Ferry Online Facebook page for updates.
