Bootle Design Code Pilot Engagement
Sefton Council has been chosen as one of only 14 Councils in the country to undertake a pilot of the Government’s National Model Design Code. We are looking at how the design code may be applied in Bootle and help inform the Bootle Area Action Plan. As part of the design pilot we are undertaking some public engagement to find out what aspects of design and sense of place residents like or dislike in Bootle. The engagement will be in three parts:
Sefton Council is developing a Bootle Action Area Plan (AAP) Development Plan Document to guide the development and investment strategy for the wider Bootle area (the area is to be confirmed). Once adopted it will form part of the Development Plan for Sefton alongside the Local Plan. It is likely to cover a range of issues that have a land use component but can also look to address wider factors that influence the quality of place in which people live, work, shop, socialise, undertake leisure activities and visit.
The stages of producing the Bootle Area Action Plan and dates are as follows:
Issues and Options – from September 2021
Preferred Options – Spring 2022
Publication – late 2022
Exact dates will be confirmed as the programme progresses.
More information will be made available on this page in due course. In the meantime if you would like further information please email to BootleAAP@sefton.gov.uk
