Labour Councillors on Maghull Town Council draw up town plan to

Caroline Esterson



Labour Councillors at Maghull Town Hall are drawing up a town plan which will layout the council's intentions for the next three years.

 

Maghull Town Council launched a consultation earlier this year to encourage residents to contribute ideas to the plan.

 

Now, after listening to the contributions, town councillors are drawing up the plan which details everything from reducing anti-social behaviour and helping people find employment to protecting the greenbelt and improving the health of the town's people.

 

Maghull Town Council Labour leader Cllr Caroline Esterson said: "The town plan is being developed as our contribution to the development of the area over the next three years.

 

"As the elected representatives of the town we are charged with attempting to protect and enhance those aspects of the area that still make Maghull a pleasant place to live and bring up a family. 

 

"We have aspirations for our town, its places and its people. We are committed to continue the work we have started to develop the sense of place and community in our area, we want to do more to help our young people find employment, support our older residents, ensure our health services respond to individual need, our transport system is fit for purpose and doesn’t leave residents stranded and

develop our assets. 

 

"In short we want to develop our town to be a great place to live, work and play."

 

The plan will be broken into various subheadings, including: 

 

Enhancing personal safety and reducing anti-social behaviour

Protecting the surrounding green spaces in our town

Encouraging wider use of public open space

Extending the value of our natural area

Improving the opportunities for healthy walks and runs

Extending the access to the town hall and other public buildings

 

Cllr Esterson said: "As well these key objectives, we will also be aiming to develop a plan which will help us ensure that we get the best for the people of Maghull and help provide the best possible opportunities for the town's people.

 

"We are still in the very early stages of developing the plan, but as soon as we have a draft available, we will be inviting people to share their views and ensure that we are working on the priorities of the people who live here."

 

Cllr Esterson thanked everyone who had contributed to the plan already.

 

Cllr Esterson added: "My Labour colleagues on Maghull Town Council would like to thank everyone who contributed to the consultation which has gone in to this plan.

 

"We will be drawing up the finer details of the plan which we will use as a blueprint for the town council for the next three years.

 

"Maghull is already a great place to live, work and visit. This plan will make it even greater."
