The Liberal Democrats are calling for urgent investment to redevelop derelict brownfield sites that could provide over a thousand high quality, affordable homes, and many new business opportunities, where they’re needed most in Sefton.
In 2019, the council had registered over 40 previously developed or derelict sites, many with existing planning permission, and space for over 1300 new homes across Bootle, Litherland, Crosby, Formby, Maghull, Aintree and Southport. Local residents will know that many of those sites remain undeveloped, and many unregistered derelict sites still blight their neighbourhoods today.
“We are campaigning for these sites to be redeveloped as a priority – the local infrastructure already exists, we can preserve eroding green spaces in the borough, and regenerate neighbourhoods in need of urgent investment.” – Hannah Gee, Candidate for Victoria Ward in Crosby & Waterloo.
The proposals should be open & transparent to ensure we don’t see a repeat of what Labour has allowed in Liverpool. The schemes should benefit the local community, meet local demands, and include investment into local services such as schools and GPs. We’d love to see new commercial spaces for sustainable businesses – though the focus should be on high quality, sustainable, affordable & social housing – with adequate parking, and access to green space and public transport.
Britain needs the Liberal Democrats, & we need you!
We’re going to keep fighting for what’s right – and we’d love for you to join us. Want to know more about our policies? Take a look at the GE2019 Manifesto.
