A Guide to Wirral’s Local Plan

What is the Local Plan?

Every local authority needs a Local Plan. It is land-use planning document that sets out how the borough should be developed over the next 15 years, in line with the requirements of national policy and legislation. It comprises a book of policies and a map of proposals that will replace the Council’s existing Unitary Development Plan, adopted in February 2000.

The Wirral FUSS (Free Uniform for Secondary School) at St Luke's Hoylake

The Wirral FUSS (Free Uniform for Secondary School) project was launched in 2012 as part of the church’s mission to serve our local community and is a demonstration of faith in action and God’s love for all. In 2015 Wirral FUPS (Free Uniform for Primary School) started as a response to the needs of families contacting Wirral FUSS. We now work in partnership with almost all the 22 local Secondary Schools and a quarter of the 100 Primary Schools on the Wirral. Our aim is to distribute good quality recycled uniform, FREE, without judgement of family circumstances. So far, we have been able to help around 1900 families with their school uniform needs.
