Safe Motorhome Stopping Places

I agree with all the comments about motorhomes visiting Whitby. You as a town are missing out on a large amount of revenue. We motorhomes travel all year round (when we are allowed). Most towns forget that we are self contained and most of the time only need somewhere to park and sleep overnight. Most […]

Safe overnight stops for motorhomes

We travel all over this country watching and writing about pantomimes usually over Christmas. It is a real challenge to park and find places to stay overnight, I contact councils in the towns or cities we are visiting and they have been most helpful. We have now joined CAMpRA (Campaign for Real Aires UK) Please […]

Motorhome Aires/Parking

Overnight stops for fully self-contained motorhomes/campervans. This would be for overnight parking (not camping) allowing sleeping in the vehicle. There are over 250,000 motorhomes registered in this country. Having somewhere to park that is accessible for the city centre will increase tourism and boost sales in city centre shops/pubs/restaurants etc. This has worked well in […]

Bulldoze the market

Bulldoze the market and get rid of one of the aisles in the precinct. Partner with Tranmere Rovers to build a new ground there. Loads of footfall from crowds rejuvenating the centre, making it a bit different. Stop competing with Liverpool as a shopping centre, Marks and Spencer not coming back.

revamp the market

make the market a better place where young people will want to hang out or even get jobs in stalls. As a teen my mum often tells me stories of the market in the 80s and it sounded great. So a modern market would be brilliant while still keeping the old market charm.

Bentinck street

The cut off in the middle of bentinck street is a crime magnet. Kids on stolen scooters head straight for it knowing the police cars can’t follow them anywhere. Bulldoze it and use the surrounding land to build affordable housing.

Modernisation

I suggest the town centre is fully redeveloped generating more jobs, also slash the price of council tax for the new store owners how can they any profit when they are getting sqeezed so heavily ( it’s no wonder they are all shutting). Why can’t we make use of our waterfronts, look at the likes […]

Sports Hub

Please could some money be invested in creating a sports hub like the one at Jericho Lane, there aren’t enough 4g pitches on the Wirral at the moment by far. Exercise is crucial to children’s and adults mental and physical well being and there aren’t enough facilities at the moment. So much more could be […]

Special needs

I believe that Wirral play council is a great special needs playgroup with a huge reach it’s affected thousands of people since its start and I believe it would hugely benefit from even the littlest of funding.

Affordable housing and decent shops

In and around Birkenhead you can not get decent affordable housing. Older houses are available quite cheap however the area these houses are in are very run down or the houses are in bad condition. New houses are built but the private rent on a decent 3 bed house is between £800-£900. The people of […]

Investing into Art and Design

As a student of Art and Design, it has always been so disappointing when I’m told that there isnt funding for the Art Department, only to see new sports facilities and equipment pop up almost constantly. Schools focus so much on sports, and it’s mainly because they receive funding for it. The Art and Design […]

Cuts to services for the disabled

I am happy for investments to be made regarding Birkenhead town centre, however, this is obviously to the detriment of services for residents with learning disabilities, as I have just learned that these services are to be cut…..the vulnerable are always at the bottom of the heap where funding is concerned. Obviously those with influence […]

Basic stuff

Birkenhead is beautiful and has amazing views/connection to Liverpool. Make more of this. Connect up to shoreline/prom. Free parking and decent investment in town centre. More schemes to help people into meaningful work. Nice mini parks on unused land. Open up vacant shops to pop-ups and incentives for local start-ups.

Town centre

Invest in the appearance of the town such as flowers and decorative lighting for seasonal events like Hoylake and Heswall do. Offer free parking in the town centre and a better range of modern shops (eg. high street fashion retailers); at the moment people would rather get the train to Liverpool than pay to park […]
