North Birkenhead lacks open places to break out into, as the urban fabric is condensed with industrial and private buildings. The proposal is to introduce anchor points spread across the town in order to inject new life into Birkenhead with spaces where economic exchange as well as social encounter occur.
At each of these three anchor points a programme of uses related to developing a local food economy has been proposed. These uses include reseach, storage, market exchange and education facilities. The anchors are linked by the existing gridded street pattern and by the proposal to activate the abandoned railway as a farming link and new public pathway.
