Why does Wirral try to compete with Liverpool?

WHY is Wirral Council hellbent on competing with cities like Liverpool and Manchester?
Wirral is made up of lots of small and large towns and villages, with some beautiful greenbelt areas (fast dwindling).
This is what makes Wirral interesting and unique, and one of the reasons many people come to visit.
Yet the council seems to continually come up with grandiose ideas, totally out of proportion for this small peninsula, insensitive to the real needs of our local environment and our people's real needs.
We have a grand plan in West Wirral between Hoylake and West Kirby for a golf resort covering 100s of acres of greenbelt land, some of which I believe is below sea-level.
How will this development affect our famous Royal Liverpool Golf course?
The recent UK Women's Open was very popular, yet the council admitted they failed to support local businesses by not encouraging all the visitors from around the world to use the local shops.
