Wirral Council’s Cabinet (as you can watch above) decided not to lend developer Nicklaus Joint Venture Group Limited an estimated £26 million of borrowed money to finance the Celtic Manor Resort scheme (previously called Hoylake Golf Resort).
The project and Wirral Council’s financing of it has been opposed by the opposition parties on Wirral (Conservative, Lib Dem, Green and Independent Group), the local MP for Wirral West Margaret Greenwood, large parts of the Labour Party and local residents with an online petition of over 7,000 opposed to the project.
Councillors explained that they planned instead to use the money for different priorities such as increasing affordable social housing.
The Chair of Wirral Council’s Cabinet Cllr Pat Hackett finished the public meeting by explaining that Wirral was “open for business” and referred to the joint venture with Muse Developments called the Wirral Growth Company which he hoped would move forward developments on the Wirral.
