Sefton Council is putting people at the heart of plans for Bootle
Town planners in Sefton will be out and about next week to gather your views on the ongoing regeneration of Bootle.
Bootle, as one of the hardest hit towns during the pandemic, is the focus of major regeneration and transformation work and has been chosen as one of the areas to test the Government’s new ‘National Model Design Code’.
To help test the code, the team are seeking views on what people like about Bootle, what they want to see improved and how they like to see new places designed. This work is part of a series of opportunities to engage on the future of Bootle over the next 6 months.
A drop-in event will be held in Bootle Strand on Friday 6th August between 11am-4pm in 47 Medway (the former Thomas Cook Travel agent) to enable local people to drop in and give their views. Comments can also be made online at www.sefton.gov.uk/bootleAAP
The Council are also hosting an online workshop for local residents and groups next week for the design pilot work. If you are interested in attending, please email bootleAAP@sefton.gov.uk for details
Cllr Daren Veidman, Cabinet Member for Planning and Building Control said:
“Bootle has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and is getting some much needed focus and spotlight as part of the regeneration plans for the area.
“We want to ensure that the views of our communities are reflected in our plans and that the transformation and regeneration of Bootle works for everyone in our community.
“I would urge people to go and visit our town planners in the Strand and have their say on what makes Bootle tick and what will make Bootle work for future generations.”
