Welcome to Kirkby Town Centre. Kirkby Town Centre sits in the heart of Kirkby and offers a great shopping experience with over 96 big name brands and independent retailers. Some of our anchor stores include New Look, Peacocks, B&M, Home Bargains, Iceland and Poundworld.
The centre has recently been acquired by St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialists. Working with Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council, St. Modwen plans to develop and expand the retailer centre to complement the existing offer.
We are pleased to announce that we have submitted the application for the town centre regeneration scheme. The application follows collaboration with Knowsley Council to develop plans for the Town Centre and a major public consultation which was held with local businesses, shopkeepers and residents in October. We were delighted that the feedback from the public consultation was overwhelmingly positive with more than 500 people attending the two-day event held in St Chad’s Parade. Of the 229 responses received 95% (218) of residents and stakeholders supported the plans.
Kirkby is a town in the Metropolitan Borough of Knowsley, Merseyside, England. Historically in Lancashire, it developed from the 1950s to the 1970s as a housing overspill of Liverpool. It is roughly 5 miles (8 km) north of Huyton and 6 miles (10 km) north-east of Liverpool. The population in 2011 was 40,472. It is believed to have been founded in 870 although there is archaeological evidence for settlement from the Bronze Age.

Kirkby has been represented at the Houses of Parliament by George Howarth since 1986 first as part of the Knowsley North constituency and currently as part of the Knowsley North and Sefton East constituency. He currently holds a 16269 majority, down from the 30708 majority from the 1997 general election which at the time made it the second safest Labour seat in the country. He was preceded by Robert Kilroy-Silk, Labour (1974–1986), Harold Soref, Conservative (1970–1974) and Harold Wilson, Labour (1950–1970), although the representing constituency has varied due to regularly shifting boundaries. The boundaries will change once again at the next general election.
Kirkby is commonly divided into four districts – Southdene, Westvale, Northwood, and Tower Hill. Its electoral wards, however, do not coincide with these divisions, and consist of Cherryfield, Kirkby Central, Northwood, Park, Shevington and Whitefield. There are 18 local councillors all of whom represent the Labour Party, who often run unopposed.
Kirkby is in the European parliamentary constituency of North West England which has nine Members known as MEPs.
