Virtual Community Consultation – East Maghull
On behalf of our clients Persimmon Homes and Countryside Properties, White Peak Planning have been instructed to organise a virtual community consultation for a proposed residential development on land to the north of Poverty Lane, Maghull.
The application seeks full planning permission for 841 new homes, two new vehicular entrances off Poverty Lane, areas of public open space, landscaping and other associated infrastructure. It also seeks outline planning permission for an older persons housing scheme.
Sefton Council’s Planning Committee considered the application in January 2020. Although it was recommended for approval by the Council’s Planning Officers, the Committee Members decided that a decision on the application should be deferred to a future meeting to allow for a Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) to be prepared in consultation with the local community.
The purpose of the virtual exhibition is therefore to set out the measures that are proposed to be incorporated into the CEMP, including options for construction traffic routes to and from the site. Comments and queries raised during the consultation will be considered when producing the CEMP.
As we are all learning to adapt to the current circumstances, a virtual community consultation has been an effective way of maintaining engagement with the local community and so far we have received over 1,000 responses.
