BirkenEd’s Place – w/c 20th February
27th February 2023
This week in BirkenEd’s Place, we have been delivering engagement for the Cleveland Street project. As part of the Birkenhead 2040 Framework, Wirral Council has identified the need and opportunity to develop a new exemplar family neighbourhood in the Cleveland Street area within the wider neighbourhood initially, identified as Hamilton Park, located directly to the south of the emerging Wirral Waters development and north of Birkenhead Park. The regeneration and transformation of this area is seen as key to delivery of adjacent developments at Wirral Waters and an important contribution to the wider regeneration taking place in Birkenhead. As part of this process, we are looking to engage with residents, businesses, and stakeholders to find out their thoughts on the proposals. This project will be on display in the space until March 6th so there is still plenty of time to come along and have your say.
March promises to be another month full of exciting events at BirkenEd’s Place. On Saturday 4th and 18th March from 1-3pm, we’ll be running free art skills workshops for young people aged 13-18 years, with local illustration and animation students Catherine, Freya, and Reilley. Each workshop will focus on different skills – from still life drawing to scrapbooks and book binding. Find out more on our engagement and events page. We are also delighted to announce that on the Wednesday 15th March from 5.30pm, we’ll be hosting a presentation evening for the U-Boat Story. Join BIG Heritage and MGMA Architects at BirkenEd’s Place to chat about the U-Boat Story. There will be conversation about the plans and designs and chance to contribute and question the proposals. This event will be great for history enthusiasts and people interested in the future of Birkenhead. Booking for this event is essential – click here to book your ticket.
