Plans for new Merseyside youth centre submitted

The designs for a new facility on the Wirral for young people have recently been submitted to the local borough council.

The proposal is to build a new youth zone in a central location on Exmouth Street in Birkenhead, close to the town’s fire station.

The chairman of the Wirral Youth Zone and Cammell Laird Group’s chief executive, John Syvret CBE, said:

“The young people of Wirral are long overdue a youth facility of this standard and with the planning application in place, we are on the road to making the dream a reality. An equally important milestone is the confirmation that URENCO has agreed to support the Youth Zone’s mission to help transform the lives of young people in this borough and become the first founder patron.”

Included in the plans are a skate park, a sports hall and a rooftop pitch. The two-storey building will be a centre for martial arts, boxing and fitness classes, as well as a focal point for the performing arts.

This scheme is one of several that Wirral architects are currently working on, with a lot of development going on in the area. The biggest project is Wirral Waters, which will, over several years, transform 500 acres of Birkenhead docklands into a cultural, trade and educational hub. New waterfront homes will also be built there.

There are several smaller projects going on in the town, including the Pacific Road business hub, which is due to open this summer. This facility will also benefit younger people in the area, with one of its key aims being to support youth enterprises.
