What is the Neighbourhood plan?

It's a planning document that Sefton Council has to take notice of when making decisions about planning applications in Lydiate. It is a legal document that complements Sefton's Local Plan.

The Plan sets out polices for future housing development in Lydiate to ensure we protect and enhance green spaces, the character of Lydiate and ensure that any development that does take place is in keeping with Lydiate's character and of good design quality.

What are the policies trying to do?

- To protect and enhance the character of Lydiate -To ensure development of the land north of Kenyons Lane is in keeping with the local area, protecting and enhancing green space insisting on good housing design. -To ensure development of the site opposite the Village Centre, Lambshear Lane, (should it be developed in the future) is developed in keeping with the local area. - To ensure improvements to existing footpaths, cycle ways and bridle paths.
