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.

During 2012/13, a series of blanket 20 mph speed limit areas were introduced in various areas with the Borough. This was in line with the current Borough-wide policy for the introduction of 20 mph speed limits in all residential areas.
The policy, which was approved by Cabinet Member Transportation in October 2011, stated that the speed limit on all residential areas within Sefton, with the exception of main distributor roads, should be reduced to 20 mph as a rolling
programme over a three or four year period.
Tonight 6th June. Councillors at the Sefton Central area committee will be asked to approve a public consultation of several new 20 mph zones and the network of main distributor roads which will remain at 30/40 mph.
Here is a map showing how the proposed scheme will affect Victoria Ward. If you reside in Victoria Ward and have any comments on the proposal then please eMail me on michael.roche@email@example.com

Households which currently have a weekly household waste collection will receive re-usable brown and white woven sacks for their plastic bottles and cardboard.
The sacks, being delivered from next week (June 10), have letters in them giving detailed information about what types of plastic and cardboard can be recycled. The letters also inform residents that the new recycling service will take place on the same day as their current refuse/recycling collections.
It is hoped that collecting these additional materials will improve recycling in areas where it tends to be lower. Currently Sefton’s borough-wide recycling rate stands at 40.8%.
Funding for the new scheme is taken from Government money and comes ahead of Sefton’s statutory obligation to introduce plastics and cardboard recycling across the borough by 2015.
