More than 300 new Formby homes recommended for approval

More than 300 new homes could be given the green light for a plot of land near Formby Bypass.

A mix of two, three and four-bedroom houses is proposed for the site to the north of Liverpool Road.

Sefton Council’s planning committee is recommended to approve the plans subject to conditions during a meeting on Wednesday 26 September.

Developers Barrett and David Wilson Homes are behind the proposals, which include a total of 304 new properties which would be two and three storeys in height.

The application site covers some 12.3 hectares, comprising two agricultural fields, and has been allocated for development in the borough’s Local Plan.

If approved the project would also incorporate access, provision of public open space, drainage infrastructure, parking, landscaping and other necessary works.

According to a document to be considered by the council’s planning committee, the plans for the scheme should be approved with conditions subject to the completion of a section 106 agreement securing “affordable housing, accessible and adaptable homes, off-site public open space contribution, contribution towards mitigation of recreational pressure, management of on-site open space, and a travel plan”.
