Sefton Council is a partner in the North West ‘Love my Beach’ campaign aiming to develop a community network contributing to achieving better bathing water and to support the long-term management of North West beaches.
The Sefton ‘Love my Beach’ campaign aims to create a network of local businesses, groups and individuals, who are interested in supporting coastal services, keeping the coast clean while raising awareness of the implications of their own actions, how they can have an impact on water quality as a visitor to their local beach and also by the actions they take in their own homes.
Sefton residents, visitors to our coast and local businesses are being asked to participate in an online survey, which should only take 10-15 mins to complete. The data collected will help to shape the campaign over the next 12 months.
The survey closes on Sunday, June 30, 2013.
Liverpool Walton MP Steve Rotheram has obtained Department of Health figures, which show that Merseyside PCTs have handed back over £15million to Central Government in underspend.
Steve explained, “It is hard to believe that in the same week that it is revealed people from Liverpool have one of the highest early death expectancy rates from cancer, strokes and heart disease, Jeremy Hunt’s department has pocketed our £15million.
“To some in Whitehall, £15million may not seem like an awful lot of money but in fact, it could pay for 500 new nurses’ posts at a time when we have dangerous low staffing levels in Aintree Hospital
The Local Plan for Sefton is a 15-year strategy to encourage sustainable development and economic growth and give current and future generations more opportunities to live and work in the borough.
The Government requires councils to develop a Local Plan and Sefton has no choice but to face the issues and challenges that it raises.
Once agreed, the plan is designed to make Sefton an even better place to live, work and visit – with improved housing, new infrastructure, transport links and more job opportunities.
