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.

Ministers should extend the deadline for local authorities to formulate local development plans because more than half have still not completed them, leading conservation body the National Trust has demanded.
Peter Nixon, director of conservation at the National Trust said: “Councils need more time to get their local plans in place to protect land from unwanted development and ensure communities get the developments they need, in the right places. Only in this way can development be genuinely sustainable”
