Maghull Town Council has submitted an application to Sefton Council to designate the parish as a ‘neighbourhood area’ for the purpose of preparing a Neighbourhood Development Plan in accordance with the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012.

The Neighbourhood Development Plan will cover the following themes:

Housing: Maghull’s housing stock is varied and interesting with a good choice. We want to see this continued with any development which takes place in Maghull. We also want to ensure that starter homes are included as well as homes specifically targeted for our more elderly citizens.

Infrastructure: Any development within Maghull should address the issues with infrastructure currently being experienced. This includes better access both on the road network as well as investment by Merseytravel.

Health and Wellbeing: The population of Maghull is concerned about the availability of doctors and dentists as well as access to primary healthcare facilities. The Neighbourhood Plan will look to address these issues. The Plan will also address the public amenity of the parks and gardens enjoyed by residents to ensure this key aspect is maintained or approved.

Local Economy: The local economy will be addressed particularly with regard to regeneration of the Town Centre and how policies could be developed to help with this.

When made, and following a successful referendum of the local community, the Neighbourhood Development Plan will supersede any relevant policies in the Council's Local Plan and be used to determine planning applications.

Sefton MBC Cabinet has approved the application for Designated Area Status at their meeting on 5th February 2015. Work is continuing on the Neighbourhood Plan and further details will be available shortly.
