Earlier this year we asked all our residents, businesses and many visitors to the borough to imagine Sefton in 2030.
In their thousands they told us they want to be involved in planning our future, what matters to them and how we all need to work together to make the vision happen.
At last night's (November 17) Full Council meeting, councillors considered the eight themes and the outcomes that are important to our communities and agreed a framework to guide the council and partners on its long term planning.
Cllr Ian Maher, Labour Leader of Sefton Council, said: "We are a very ambitious borough with so much to offer.
"We, along with our many partners, will work together to unlock our potential making the most of our many strengths and assets such as our beautiful coast.
"Unfortunately the impact of continuous Government cuts will influence how we all move forward together. Since 2011 we have lost £169m in funding and we are currently developing our plans for further savings of £64m over the next three years.
"This will be a real challenge but along with our partners we remain ambitious and are determined to see all our communities prosper and flourish in the future.
"Things will not happen overnight - this is all about planning for our long term future."
