New Contractor To Be Appointed To Redevelop The Strand

Construction News Image
Sefton Council is set to discuss the appointment of a new contractor for Bootle Strand in the latest step towards its redevelopment.

The decision to partner with Vinci Construction UK would be another significant milestone in a process that started seven years ago.

Sefton Council purchased Bootle Strand in 2017 and laid out plans for a landmark redevelopment that would make it one of the Borough’s key attractions.

In the years following, consultations with Sefton residents and work beginning on the Salt and Tar events space helped the redevelopment plan to build steam.

The project accelerated in March 2023 with the award of £20 million as part of the government's Levelling Up fund.

With that significant cash injection, the redevelopment is all set to gear up in 2024. The Cabinet will now meet to discuss the exciting next steps on Bootle Strand’s journey.

Vinci Construction UK will be proposed as the demolition contractor for the redevelopment after they were identified as the top choice in a rigorous tender process.

Their plans include introducing 20 new jobs for local applicants during the demolition phase, plus the introduction of work placements for school leavers and care experienced young people.

Vinci also aims to work alongside local groups including Sefton@Work, Hugh Baird College and YKids, in keeping with the Council’s inclusive and ambitious plans for the redevelopment, and making sure the local community are engaged in the demolition programme, particularly those residents most immediately affected by the works.

Once completed, a revitalised Strand will re-emerge as the heart of Bootle town centre. It will host a vibrant mix of retail, leisure, education and health facilities, also providing new public spaces and enhanced access to the canalside.
