The results of this Regulation 16 Consultation will be sent to an Independant Examiner who will review the Plan, the comments received from the consultations and the evidence base. The Examiner may decide to remove sections of the Plan if he considers that there is good reason to do so. The Plan will then go to a referendum of the residents of Formby - it is estimated that this will be Summer 2019. If the Plan is approved at the referendum then it will become a "Made" Plan, which means that it will be a legal planning document and Sefton MBC must apply the policies to all planning decisions relating to Formby.
