Isle of Man company cancels plans for ICT College in Birkenhead

Isle of Man company cancels plans for ICT College in Birkenhead

                                                     

Wirral Council (15th December 2015) Cllr Adrian Jones announced plans that have now been cancelled for an ICT College in Birkenhead last month

Wirral Council (15th December 2015) Cllr Adrian Jones announced plans that have now been cancelled for an ICT College in Birkenhead last month

The Isle of Man Today website (which is the website for the three Manx newspapers such as the Isle of Man Courier) reported yesterday that the International Centre for Technology Ltd has "pulled the plug" on a plan to re-use the Conway Building and Hamilton Building (both in Birkenhead).

The Conway Building and the Hamilton Building are both owned by Wirral Council. Manx Education Foundation who had been behind the plans had a minority shareholding in the International Centre for Technology Ltd. However the International Centre for Technology Ltd have since bought out Manx Education Foundation’s shareholding which means the plan for a creative industry training college in Birkenhead will now not happen.

ICT Ltd are instead concentrating on developing a property on the Isle of Man called the Nunnery that they bought from the Tynwald (Isle of Man government) for £5 million that they hope to open later this year.

The now shelved plans for the Conway Building and Hamilton Building were previously reported on this blog and by the Liverpool Echo. News of the plans were first revealed in a report by Cllr Adrian Jones (Cabinet Member for Resources: Finance, Assets and Technology) to councillors last month.

It looks like Wirral Council will have to re-think what they will do with the Conway Building and the Hamilton Building in Birkenhead.

  1. I like to think that our local blogs, available not just internationally, but in the tax avoiding Isle of Man, have had some influence on this extremely positive development.

    On Wirral, we don’t want scoundrels coming together to pull the wool over our eyes re: so-called ‘jobs’ and ‘opportunities’, whilst dipping their soiled snouts into our precious public money trough.

  2. G’day John

    Still a bit poorly but find your blog a tonic.

    I think “The Pretend Friend” and AdderleyDadderlyDooLally should be feeling a bit poorly this week.

    “Highbrow” has an appointment this week that laughs in the face of the welsh buffon and his “You’ve won boyo and there is no use picking the eyes out of a corpse” crap as “Highbrow” has finally got to the corpse and I do believe he will be picking the eyes out of it.

    So “Football Shirt” and welsh sloth have a great week.

    Ooroo
