All local authorities are required to produce a Local Plan. The Local Plan sets out how we will plan the future development of Sefton. It will guide new developments to appropriate locations, while protecting our natural environment and built heritage, and provides guidance to developers on submitting planning applications.
The Local Plan is shaped by the National Planning Policy Framework – the top tier of planning policy. The Framework provides guidance to local authorities and other agencies on planning policy and the operation of the planning system. It covers issues such as housing, green belts, economic growth, heritage, sustainable development, biodiversity, transport, waste management and open space, sport and recreation.
