People have had many ‘big ideas’ for Hoylake in the past, perhaps most ambitiously presented in 2004 with the BDP ‘Hoylake and West Kirby Masterplan’. Some ideas have been realised, others not.

Here we present a collection of pieces of research, ideas and reference for you to consider; these have been produced by paid consultants, university students, local groups and developers.

There are also sections at the end of this list which records the origins and ongoing development of the Forum; minutes of meetings and links to current major planning applications (Wirral Council website).

NOTE: Presentation of these documents does not imply endorsement by Hoylake Vision, they are simply offered in the interests of assisting informed conversation.
