Crosby Investment Strategy, which looks at the options for the economic and social rejuvenation of the area, is being made publicly available for comment from 29 June until Sunday 9 August.
The aim of the Strategy is for Crosby Village to have a vibrant and exciting centre at the very heart of community life with an attractive mix of community services, meeting places, pubs, cafés and restaurants as well as independent and national retailers.
The Strategy, which has been developed with Sefton Council’s lead consultants Nexus Planning and Broadway Malyan, will be available for the public to view and comment on until 9 August.
The Strategy can be found online and hard copies are available at Crosby Library and at Magdalen House, Bootle. The public are invited to comment on the proposals via the website or by the using reply forms available at Crosby Library and Magdalen House.
Cllr Ian Maher, Leader of Sefton Council, said “This is a forward looking strategy and marks a first step in the redevelopment of Crosby Town Centre. It builds on the views, knowledge and expertise of local people and it will hopefully play a key role in attracting major new investment to the Town Centre.
“I am also delighted that Sainsbury’s Supermarkets Ltd are marketing their surplus assets, with the prospect of new development. We look forward to talking with both Sainsbury’s and the prospective purchasers about how their development can make a positive contribution towards delivering the vision and objectives of the Crosby Investment Strategy.”
