Two Birkenhead shopping centres acquired by council

16th May 2023 | Jack Oliver

Wirral Council has acquired The Grange and The Pyramids shopping centres in Birkenhead town centre.

The two sites were put on the market by Mars Pension Fund as the council concluded consultation on how the local area could be improved for local businesses and people.

Plans for the restoration of Birkenhead centre are part of a wider number of regenerative schemes across the town, from the Mersey Left Bank area from Bromborough, through to Wirral Waters then Seacombe, Liscard, and New Brighton.

The purchased shopping area site includes Argos and Conway Street car park, Princes Pavements, Borough Pavements and the M&S Unit, Milton Pavement, and The Pyramids.

Wirral Council’s director of regeneration and place, Dave Hughes, said: “The council’s aim is to see new life breathed into central Birkenhead and we are confident that this ambition can be achieved through the Council’s local stewardship of the asset.”

The town centre’s Birkenhead Market is already under council control, with plans in the pipeline to redevelop the former House of Fraser building to accommodate a new modern market.
