Emerging Supplementary Planning Documents

Emerging Supplementary Planning Documents update


The Council intends to begin work on a number of Supplementary Planning Documents (SPDs) to support the policies in its Adopted Local Plan. The first stage of the process is to set out scope of each SPD and give the opportunity for residents, organisations and other groups to comment on whether they agree with what the SPD will cover. For each proposed SPD we have put together a broad overview of what we think each SPD will cover.



Work has yet to start on these documents and the Council would like to give you an early opportunity to suggest the issues and broad content you consider these SPDs should include.  We would like to hear from groups or individuals who consider they could contribute to the contents of these documents.

Comments are sought on the scope of the SPDs by Friday 17th April 2020. Comments should be made in writing to local.plan@sefton.gov.uk or SPD consultation, Planning Department, Magdalen House, Trinity Road, Bootle L20 3NJ

You will have an opportunity to comment again once the draft documents have been written.
