Bootle Area Action Plan

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:

  • A drop in event on Friday 6th August (11am – 4pm) at the former Thomas Cook shop in Bootle Strand (opposite B&M Bargains)
  • An online workshop on Tuesday 10th August (6pm – 7.30pm) for local residents and groups. If you wish to attend this or need further info please email
  • An online survey that can completed up to 20th August.

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
