Plea to help shape the fu­ture

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

RES­I­DENTS, busi­nesses and landown­ers in and around Burscough are be­ing en­cour­aged to give their views on an ex­cit­ing new plan for their area.

The Burscough Par­ish Neigh­bour­hood Plan has been pre­pared by Burscough Par­ish Coun­cil in con­sul­ta­tion with the lo­cal com­mu­nity and has now been passed to West Lan­cashire Bor­ough Coun­cil to take for­ward for ex­am­i­na­tion in line with na­tional leg­is­la­tion.

The Neigh­bour­hood Plan con­tains a vi­sion, ob­jec­tives and plan­ning poli­cies for the Burscough par­ish area, cov­er­ing the pe­riod up to 2027.

It will shape what de­vel­op­ment takes place in the fu­ture and where, what new build­ings will be ex­pected to look like, what new in­fra­struc­ture may be needed and which sites, such as open spa­ces, should be pro­tected.

A pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion is tak­ing place on the neigh­bour­hood plan from Jan­uary 9 to Fe­bru­ary 20, dur­ing which time com­ments are in­vited.

The con­sul­ta­tion is open to any­one, but the coun­cil would par­tic­u­larly like to hear the views of peo­ple liv­ing and work­ing in Burscough.

Once the con­sul­ta­tion ends, the neigh­bour­hood plan and re­sponses re­ceived will be sent to an in­de­pen­dent ex­am­iner who will con­sider if the plan is sat­is­fac­tory.

If so, there will then be a ref­er­en­dum for peo­ple liv­ing in the Burscough Par­ish area to de­cide if they are in favour.
