The plan will support the delivery of economic growth in Knowsley, bringing in investment, attracting more businesses into the Borough, more residents through the delivery of a high-quality housing offer and creating more jobs for local people.

So much has been achieved over the last ten years, including the construction and opening of the iconic Shakespeare North Playhouse, construction of a 94,000 sq ft retail development in Kirkby, construction of nearly 6,500 homes and more than 10,000 jobs created.

Now, the Council wants to build on these achievements by setting out it’s clear vision and priorities for the next six years.

The Economic Growth Plan for 2024 to 2030 will include:-

  • A long-term vision for Knowsley’s economy, matching the ambition set out in the Knowsley 2030 Strategy.
