I have just had a call from Sefton Planning Dept. responding to my posting of yesterday and very positive it was too.
The message about the process not being one that has connected well with folks has been listened to and I was informed that people living very close to potential development sites would now be informed directly by Sefton by letter about the matter.
It seems that my posting and experience of the first consultation in Melling yesterday showed that messages had not got through to residents and that this had caused Melling residents to be frustrated when they found out late in the day.
The next consultation meetings in the East Parishes are:-
LYDIATE – At Lydiate Village Centre, Lambshear Lane, Lydiate – 2.00pm to 8.00pm on Monday 13th June.
AINTREE – At Aintree Library, Altway, Aintree Village – 4.00pm to 7.00pm on Wednesday 15th June.
MAGHULL – At Meadows Leisure Centre, Hall Lane, Maghull – 2.00pm to 8.00pm on Tuesday 21st June.
If you can get along to one of these events please do so as they are all about the future of our local communities. If you live outside of the East Parishes please check the Sefton web site for dates of events in your part of the Borough.
