The Formby Parish Council has begun the process of going through the recently published ‘Emerging Publication draft of the Sefton Local Plan’. Our overriding aim is to take steps to protect the special environment that is Formby, and we do require a robust plan to prevent over-development. However, there are several issues in connection with the brief given to the Overview and Scrutiny Committee on 9th December 2015, we believe to be incomplete and misleading.
First we repeat our objection to any building on the green belt.
