Formby Labour Labour Action Team leader Peter Maguire and Labour Councillor Catie Page attended the second drop-in session to see amended plans for Smithy Green.
 
Plans for Smithy Green originally involved 18 two-bedroom (three person) flats and 24 three-bedroom (five person) townhouses built on the green.
 
But applicants, One Vision Housing have now amended the plans.
 
Instead of 42 properties, One Vision is applying to build 24 houses. There are now no flats in the revised proposed development.
 
As well as that, not all of the green will be used for the development as the plans show that part of it will be converted into an "urban greenspace".
 
Formby Labour Action Team's Peter Maguire and Ravenmeols Ward Labour Councillor Catie Page have been inundated with letters from concerned residents about the original plans.
 
Peter said: "The amendments which One Vision Housing has made to the plans show that they are listening to the concerns of residents.
 
"But it is my priority that all of the views of residents are listened to and addressed.
 
"I've been contacted by scores of people who have concerns about the plans they have seen or have questions about the proposals.
 
"I am working closely with our MP Bill Esterson and Cllr Catie Page in relation to this matter to ensure that people have their say and that any development is in the interests of the community.
 
"This is a major proposal for Formby and we want to make sure that everyone has the chance to have their say.

"We want all the views of the community to be heard in relation to this major development."
