Kat2 this is on the wrong thread, it belongs on an Enterprise Zone construction thread. It is irrelevant here, suggest you repost or ask Bammy to move it if you don't know how to.

I'm really pleased to see there's some movement on site, something else to look forward to this year.

In which case you are either very stupid, or you are a trouble maker. Or maybe both, who know?

As made very plain indeed, this thread is about how to deal with areas of housing abandonment that exist in Greater Liverpool. And, as made plain, the video was for illustrative purposes and it wasn't intended to be a specific discussion of how to deal with specific areas.

And yet you persist in obstructing what could be a useful conversation with your silly nonsense.

Interesting ideas here (although obviously not to "Kat2", who doesn't believe there are problems of de-population, housing abandonment or decay in Greater Liverpool).

Birkenhead’s business community heard about plans to boost business investment and grow the economy of the town centre at the launch of Birkenhead First, Wirral’s first Business Improvement District (BID).
The BID won overwhelming support with 86% of businesses backing the initiative which will support investment in four key areas of cleanliness and attractiveness, safety and security, marketing and promotion, and business support.
Delegates heard how Birkenhead First will invest more than £2m in the town over a five year period. Further projects were highlighted in keynote presentations made by Wirral Chamber of Commerce, who manage the initiative, Wirral Council and Ion Developments, which plans to create a new leisure destination in Europa Boulevard.
Chamber chief executive Paula Basnett said: “Following more than a year of planning it is great to start implementing some tangible projects. We want to create a long-term initiative that is right for the town and for the businesses in the area.
“I’m confident that together with partners, we’re going to make a real difference to the area.”
The event followed the introduction of Birkenhead First Town Hosts. Joe Scarth, Sarah Preston and John Dobson will have a pivotal ambassadorial role in welcoming and directing visitors to the area.
Birkenhead First is led by a private sector steering group.
Alastair Gould, steering group chair and a director of Birkenhead-based chartered accountants McEwan Wallace, said: ”I am confident that the introduction of Birkenhead First is a very positive move for the town, and importantly, right for the businesses in the area.”
Birkenhead First will organise a diverse series of events aimed at attracting more people to the town and helping build business confidence in the area.
Ion Developments has recently announced proposals for the redevelopment of the existing Europa Pool site, with family restaurants and a Travelodge hotel around the existing Vue cinema in Birkenhead.
Steve Parry, Ion managing director, said: “The successful regeneration of Birkenhead is not just about physical development and will only be achieved by a close collaboration between the local authority, existing businesses and the developers undertaking projects in the town.
“Birkenhead needs a major boost in confidence and the coming together of the town centre business interest in Birkenhead First will help to instil a confidence in the future of the town which will impact upon businesses and the general public and facilitate a major change in its environment and offer."
Wirral Council leader Cllr Phil Davies said: “Wirral Council, local businesses and the public sector share a common goal to build a strong thriving economy and attract investment to power growth.
"Our 2020 pledges to meet this ambition are clear – 5,000 jobs created or safeguarded, £250m inward investment and to boost our visitor economy to £450m.
“The council cannot achieve this alone, after all, local businesses will hire and train new recruits, invest in new plant and facilities and launch new products and services.
"Our support for Birkenhead First is another way to cement the partnership between the council, the business community and our residents."
