Local Plan

What is the Local Plan?

The Local Plan will shape the future of Sefton for years to come. It will set out how new development will be managed in the period from 2015 to 2030, it encourages sustainable development and economic growth and it gives current and future generations more opportunities to live and work in Sefton’s outstanding environment.


The Council adopted the Local Plan at its meeting of the Full Council on Thursday 20th April 2017.

The Council received one challenge to the Local Plan. The challenge related to Policy NH4 and associated changes to the Coastal Change Management Area as shown on the Policies Map which were made as a Main Modification to the Local Plan in 2016.

This has now been withdrawn.

The Local Plan documents are:

Hard copies of the Local Plan (including the maps) are available to purchase for £70. The cost for Sefton residents and local groups is £35.

The written statement and the policy maps may be subject to additional minor modifications and any other editorial changes that do not amend the substance of the Plan.
