Sefton Local Plan – many concerns not least flooding

Last night Sefton Council’s Planning Committee met and the big issue on the agenda was a report on the 2nd round public consultation held between July and September 2013.

Not surprisingly there are many areas of concern but the one that kept appearing over and over again from many differing sources was flooding.

The vast majority of Sefton Borough is low lying, some of it below sea level, so is there any wonder that this is the biggest concern in most of Sefton’s communities.

Even the Environment Agency has raised concerns in respect of Sefton’s proposed sites to build on because of flooding worries!

I will post further on this subject very soon.
