Formby Neighbourhood Development Plan We wish to update all those who kindly attended our launch event in late June or completed a questionnaire enclosed with this newspaper in the same month. We were very pleased with the attendance at the launch event and the participation of those who attended and with the number of questionnaires returned. During the past month we have been working on the responses and you may be interested in the principal issues raised in a representative sample, which have been analysed. It was the first step in collecting advice from residents to allow us to develop a Neighbourhood Plan for Formby.
The Formby and Little Altcar Neighbourhood Plan is out to public consultation for 6 weeks from 30 October to 12 December 2016. Following this consultation the responses will be analysed and the Plan may be amended as appropriate to reflect the comments made. A final submission version will then be produced which will be sent to Sefton Council who will conduct a second consultation on the revised document. The results of this then go to an independant examiner who will have the final say as to what can be included in the Plan. The Plan will then come back to Formby residents for a referendum to decide whether to adopt the Plan. If it is adopted it then becomes a "made" plan and a legal planning document which will have to be implemented by Sefton Council.
Residents are invited to the following drop-in event to give their ideas on Formby's future.
