Port Sunlight Today

Port Sunlight is still the home of Unilever today with the original buildings still occupied by residents and businesses. The Port Sunlight Village Trust took over the running of the village in April 1999 and is now independent of Unilever.

The majority of the village, its gardens and buildings are still the same.

A new complex of 40 apartments was built in 2000, and another small block of apartments was built in 2003. The planning department has only approved new development which is in keeping with the original style in order to preserve the character of the village.
