The Southport Development Framework has now been approved by the Sefton Cabinet.
Southport is a unique and classic seaside town that has real potential to build on and enhance its profile and contribution to economic growth in the region. The Development Framework reflects a commitment to attract new investment and work towards realising long term ambitions through a co-ordinated approach to town centre management, unlocking sites, enhancing key heritage assets, improving the public realm and enhancing accessibility.
The Framework was developed with Sefton Council’s lead consultants Nexus and Broadway Malyan. The document incorporates views and comments gathered at a range of consultation events.
The Strategy links into the Sefton Local Plan, identifying specific development proposals along with support for the planning regeneration priorities for the area and will help guide the future of the council’s current property and land holdings in the town.
It is envisioned that investor confidence will also be enhanced through the development of a clear plan for Southport. Sefton Council will be working closely with developers, investors and other stakeholders to help bring together both private and public sector resources to improve the overall economic health and vitality of the town.
