Councillors representing Churchtown and Crossens have opposed building on local Green Belt land. In a submission to Sefton Council's Local Plan consultation, Cllrs Nigel Ashton, John Dodd and David Rimmer describe the Plan as 'flawed'.
Local Lib Dem campaigner Jo Barton agrees that the plans should be scrapped. "The Council has not listened to the local community", said Jo. "We do not want these developments. Sefton is desperate to press ahead with the plans regardless of the legitimate concerns of residents.
“Once Green Belt land is gone it's gone forever. We must stop these developments before it’s too late"
