Prescot is a town steeped in history. It has a fantastic story to tell and is a place with bold ambitions and with growing confidence as a place where people and businesses want to be.

The vision is for Prescot town centre to become a thriving attractive destination for local residents and visitors; home to new cultural and leisure facilities, a reinvigorated retail offer, excellent local services and new residential developments.

Already things are happening. New homes are being built; there are plans for a Shakespearean theatre and education centre, new restaurants and bars.

Knowsley Council, its private sector partners, the local community and business owners are all working together towards ambitious plans which will conserve the town’s heritage whilst transforming the area into an even more attractive place for people to invest, live, visit and spend time.
