Formby Neighbourhood Plan

Formby Parish Council has submitted an application to Sefton Council to designate their parish as a ‘neighbourhood area’ for the purpose of preparing a Neighbourhood Development Plan in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.

Neighbourhood Plans were introduced by the Localism Act (2011) and provide more detailed planning guidance about a local area.  Sefton Council wants to hear views about the proposal.

The Parish Council has submitted a plan showing the boundary of their parish and a brief statement indicating why they consider the boundary is appropriate.

If approved the Neighbourhood Plan will be prepared by the Parish Council.  The Plan is likely to include policies covering:

•Safety and security  •The local economy  •The environment  •Health and well-being

If adopted, and following a referendum of the local community, the Neighbourhood Plan would supersede any relevant policies in the Council’s Local Plan and be used to determine planning applications.
