Please sign ePetition Saving Sefton’s Green Belt ! June 23rd, 2013 admin Latest News Shares Comments Saving Sefton’s Green Belt There is an on-line petition asking people to agree with this statement: We the undersigned petition the council to amend the ‘Preferred Option’ plan to reflect the most recent and up to date Government statistics which clearly show a significant reduction in housing need, sheds doubt on the necessity for large edge of town industrial parks, which in the absence of sufficient demand, threatens local traders, damaging town centres. Sefton’s local plan, formulated over the last 5 years continues to show little regard for the green belt. Our Council will, in the upcoming months, embark on a Public Consultation Process, using Household population figures that they themselves concede are not an accurate reflection of current housing need. Most up to date Government figures show the Council’s projections to be at least 20% too high. We believe that this anomaly is so significant that it undermines the validity of the Consultation exercise. This ePetition runsfrom 12/06/2013 to 24/06/2013.
