New Attraction for Woodside

In October 2023, Big Heritage CIC which runs the Western Approaches museum in Liverpool revealed its plans to revamp and completely transform the U-Boat Story Museum in Birkenhead. The scheme has now been granted planning permissions by Wirral Council. The project is being funded by part of a £19.6m levelling up grant which looks to introduce a new green space, improve the Woodside ferry terminal, and create a new international Battle of the Atlantic attraction.

Mathew Giles, Director of  MGMA Architects said:

‘MGMA Architects is delighted that the proposed redevelopment of the U-Boat Story has received Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent. Under the stewardship of BIG Heritage CIC, the U-Boat Story will be the cultural focal point of the Woodside Masterplan, coinciding with the refurbishment of the Grade II listed Ferry Terminal, landing stage and pontoon, and the wider public realm. MGMA Architects have working closing with BIG Heritage CIC to unlock the potential of the site, with Wirral Borough Council, and Merseytravel.’
