Local Plan

What is the Local Plan?

The Local Plan will shape the future of Sefton for years to come. It will set out how new development will be managed in the period from 2015 to 2030, it encourages sustainable development and economic growth and it gives current and future generations more opportunities to live and work in Sefton’s outstanding environment.
