How your money is spent

We are currently looking at making further savings of £64m between 2017 and 2020 as a direct result of Government funding cuts. In total, Sefton Council will have lost 51% of Government funding between 2010 and 2020 which is equivalent to £722 from every household in Sefton. This is at a time when there are significant pressures in Adult and Children’s Social Care. Please view the short video below to see how your Council Tax is spent.

Sefton’s Local Plan A Step Closer

Sefton Council’s Local Plan is a step closer to adoption after the last hearings took place last week.

The Local Plan looks to shape the future of Sefton meeting assessed housing and employment needs until 2030.

An independent Inspector has just concluded a further two days of hearings in relation to 4 sites in Formby – land North and South of Formby Industrial Estate, Shorrocks Hill site and land at Liverpool Road.

The Inspector heard evidence from site owners, Sefton Council, Formby Parish Council, local residents and other interested parties at a hearing in Bootle Town Hall.

This marks a significant milestone in the progress of the Local Plan as the Inspector indicated these are the last hearings. He is due to issue his final report by the end of December and the Local Plan should be approved in 2017.

Cllr Daren Veidman, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member Planning and Building Control, said: “The hearing marks an important milestone in a lengthy process of helping Sefton gear up for the challenge of meeting needs for new homes and businesses over the next 15 years.

“The Inspector has heard much evidence from many people and we now look forward to receiving his report and completing the Local Plan.

“As soon as we hear from the inspector we will of course let people know the outcome as we look to the future.”
