Time extended to have your say on transport improvements through Sefton’s Maritime Corridor

People across Sefton will now have an extra two weeks to submit their views as part of a Council consultation on proposed improvements to transport links through the Maritime Corridor.

The public consultation will remain open for a further two weeks until Sunday 11th April.

The Maritime Corridor scheme proposes improvement works at five key junctions, as well as enhancements to walking and cycling routes.

Stretching from Switch Island to the Netherton Way (A5038), the Maritime Corridor links Atlantic Park to the wider region. It includes junctions on Ormskirk Road (A59), Dunnings Bridge Road (A5036) and Netherton Way (A5038), as well as the local road network. The Corridor is also key to connecting the Port of Liverpool with the wider region and is a recognised area for potential economic growth by both the Council and the Liverpool City Region.

Feedback from the survey will be incorporated into development plans while funding is sought for the improvements.

As part of the Council’s 2030 vision, all improvement plans for the Borough’s streets and transport networks take into account the need to tackle the wider Climate Change Emergency while improving the health and wellbeing of its residents.

Schemes aim to keep people active and encourage them to think about alternative and green modes of transport that will improve air quality, while at the same time reducing congestion and enhancing access for residents, visitors and businesses alike.

Cllr John Fairclough, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Locality Services, said: “Thank you to everyone who has taken part so far in this consultation. Your views are extremely important and will help us to shape the scheme as it moves forward.

“There’s still plenty of time for people to tell us what they think about the proposed improvement works to key junctions, as well as the enhancements to both walking and cycling routes in the area. The intention is to make it easier to move around and to improve links across the region and beyond, while also including active travel measures that support the health and wellbeing of our communities. It’s also vital that we maintain our commitment to taking positive actions in support of Sefton’s Climate Emergency objectives.

“The consultation, along with maps of the proposed junction improvements and cycle provisions, can be accessed on the Your Sefton Your Say website and will be open until Sunday 11th April 2021.”

Public consultation launched on Sefton Council’s Gambling Licensing Policy

As part of Sefton Council’s licensing duties, it is seeking the views of residents across the Borough on how it implements gambling laws at businesses such as betting shops.

A public consultation will run from Monday 8th February to Monday 5th April. The Council’s Licensing Unit will be seeking the views of local businesses with gambling licenses, as well as key partners including police and Public Health colleagues and members of the community.

Under the Gambling Act 2005, the Council is the Licensing Authority for processing certain gambling applications. This means that a Statement of Licensing Policy must be in place, and reviewed every three years, to show specifically how the Council understands the law.

As the policy is up for review, people interested in submitting their views are encouraged to take part in the consultation. All comments will be collated, and as a result, changes will be suggested to the draft policy.

Cllr John Kelly, Chair of Sefton Council’s Licensing and Regulatory Committee, said: “Sefton, like all local authorities, has a duty to periodically review its licensing policies. This is an opportunity for not just the owners of gambling businesses to submit their views, but for anyone across Sefton to find out more about how we process gambling licenses and how they feel our policy could be amended.

“Please take the time to read about the proposed policy and tell us what you think about it.”

People can take part on the Your Sefton Your Say website.

Alternatively, those wishing to offer their views who do not have access to the online consultation, can contact the Licensing Unit via email licensing@sefton.gov.uk or by calling 0345 140 0845.

The Council will try to meet any other requirements that anyone may have that will allow them to engage in the consultation process.

Share your vision for Crosby’s Coronation Park by taking part in public consultation

Sefton Council’s Green Sefton team has launched a public consultation to gather ideas and thoughts on ways to improve the facilities at Crosby’s Coronation Park.

Residents across the Borough, as well as visitors, are being asked if and how they currently access and use the park, and what their priorities would be for enhancing what’s on offer.

Development ideas might include ways to improve play and sports facilities, and opportunities for improvements to the park pavilion and general landscaping. New ideas are also welcomed to help enhance the existing facilities.  

Green Sefton is working in partnership with the Friends of Coronation Park on the consultation and is being supported by Capacity – a Social Enterprise that helps organisations to rethink and reimagine public services.

At this stage, no specific funding has been identified for investment within the Crosby park. It is anticipated that feedback from the consultation will enable Green Sefton to develop new and existing ideas for the future of the park and use this to bid for external funding.

Cllr Ian Moncur, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: â€śWith over 30 parks across the Borough we have a wide range of facilities for all ages and abilities to enable them to enjoy spending time outdoors. Our Green Sefton team is always looking at ways to work with the community to enhance and improve our offer, and so I welcome this opportunity for people to share their vision for Crosby’s Coronation Park.

“It’s a completely anonymous consultation, so all views and ideas are welcomed to ensure the Green Sefton team incorporates the community’s ideas into any potential improvement plans.

“The consultation can be easily completed online and isn’t very lengthy, so please do get involved.”

The consultation is now open and will run until Friday 12th March. People can take part online and are encouraged to share the consultation with others that might like to share their thoughts and ideas.
