THE Wirral Waters planning application is so huge it had to be delivered by van and cost thousands of pounds just to print.
The biggest application the UK has ever seen will take more than a week to be fully uploaded onto Wirral Council’s website.
But the firm behind the proposals hopes the effort and cost will be worth it, and, if approved could even lead to the establishment of a government department on the peninsula.
Peel Holdings’ Richard Mawdsley said: “As well as targeting new start-ups and local companies, we see Wirral Waters having an appeal to those who have become discontent with the South East.
The public seem impressed, with Peel reporting a 99% approval rate among those who filled in questionnaires at displays in Birkenhead Market over the last month.
