Paula Basnett, CEO at Wirral Chamber of Commerce, commented, “There are exciting times in the months ahead as we see far reaching plans taking shape in Woodside and further afield. We have a very strong community of independent businesses and we want to support their growth and provide great opportunities to maximise the advantage of our unique waterfront location. Through creative development plans, we will make Woodside a successful hub of activity and community”
The new Independent Wirral Market @ Woodside, which is being set on land once part of the original dry dock area, will boast 20 purpose built retail chalets, designed by the “Quirky Builders”, a local artisan construction company. All materials have been built using locally sourced, reclaimed timber with more than a nod to the original shipping crates and maritime heritage which once populated the area.
