What land owners/developers have planned for Sefton’s East Parishes – Green Belt building on a massive scale – Posting 2 Western Maghull & Lydiate

My first posting covered the 3 massive Green Belt sites to the north east of Lydiate – 2 being promoted by Labour run Sefton Council and 1 by a land owner.

Now we move to the west of Maghull & Lydiate to look at another potential development of colossal proportions. Click on the map to enlarge it:-

This huge site wraps around the western side of Maghull and into Lydiate. The red dotted line is the Maghull/Lydiate boundary which goes through the site.

This huge site wraps around the western side of Maghull and into Lydiate. The red line is the Maghull/Lydiate boundary which goes through the site. It runs from south of Green Lane in Maghull to Bells Lane in Lydiate. The small detached area of blue is a separate land owner proposed development between Sefton Meadows recycling Centre and the Cheshire Lines Path.

The whole large blue area is presently designated as agricultural land and much of it is in use for that purpose. Like the land to the north east of Lydiate it is all high grade agricultural land which grows our food.

It is easy to imagine how this development could, should it gain the green light, utterly change the character of Maghull & Lydiate. It is without doubt a huge urban extension and I am unsurprisingly told a very unwelcome one amongst Maghull & Lydiate Folk.

My next posting will cover the east of Maghull where Labour-run Sefton wants to concrete over acres and acres of high grade agricultural land and Green Belt.
