Sumner Road Car Park


Formby Parish Council discussed the proposal by Sefton Council to turn the Sumner Road car park into a "pay and display". The Parish Council strongly object to this and would like this to remain a free parking facility for the residents of Formby. The Parish Council do not see how spending £26,000 to turn this into a "pay and display" would benfit the community and indeed we are concerned that this would in fact push parking to the other roads surrounding the village exacerbating the road parking problems we already have. The Parish Council will object to this proposal on behalf of the residents, but urge you as a resident to object also. There will be 21 day call in period when objections can be made so please check our website for details of this and how to object.

Parish Council View on "Draft Local Plan"

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.
