Formby Labour Councillors and MP Bill Esterson organise public m


Formby Councillors Peter Maguire, Nina Killen and Catie Page and MP Bill Esterson are holding a public meeting to discuss plans to build 62 new houses on the Powerhouse site.
Formby Labour Action Team is holding a public meeting on Friday to give people affected by the latest Powerhouse plans the chance to air their views.

Formby's Labour Councillors Peter Maguire, Catie Page and Nina Killen will be joined by MP Bill Esterson to hear the views of local residents ahead of the application being formally submitted to Sefton Council.

The meeting will be held at the Professional Development Centre on Park Road starting at 7pm on Friday (November 30).

Bellway Homes held a public exhibition of their plans for the site last week, which includes 62 new properties.

Cllr Peter Maguire, who lives near to the site, said he had already been contacted by residents about the issue.

Cllr Maguire said: "There have been a number of plans drawn up for the Powerhouse site over the years, but as each one failed to make it from the drawing board, the building has fallen into a state of total disrepair.

"It has become a magnet for anti-social behaviour and it is dangerous.

"Everyone who has contacted me agrees it is an eyesore.

"But people have raised concerns about what type of properties are to be built on the site. Will they benefit people from Formby who are looking for somewhere to live?

"There are also concerns from residents on Park Road who have issues with the plans which will see two houses there demolished to make way for an access road.

"The whole point of Friday's meeting is to listen to these concerns so we as councillors can work alongside our MP Bill Esterson to get the best for the people of Formby.

"So I would urge everyone to come along to the meeting and have their say."

The meeting will be held at the Professional Development Centre on Park Road starting at 7pm on Friday (November 30).
