ABetterCrosby - our Vision for Crosby

Welcome back, or hello for the first time.

For the last few months we have been quietly busy.

Since our Annual General Meeting in February, and our Re-Imagining Crosby Village workshop in April, we have been talking to council officers, Councillors and others about how to make real progress with improvements to Crosby Village.

We are now asking for views on our initial ideas for the future of the village - which you can read about HERE - please either comment on the post or email us at, if you have any thoughts you would like to add.

Most urgently we are also making formal comment on Sefton Council's Core Strategy - the key planning document which will direct development in Sefton for the next 15 years.  You may have heard of this in the context of proposals to reduce the Green Belt, but it is about much more than that, and it is our best chance of influencing local policy.  Please read our draft response HERE, and if you can, make your own, personal  response on the councils quick and easy on-line survey, here. The last day for responses is Friday 12th August.

There are many other things we wish we intend to do, particularly organising some community events in Crosby Village, and creating a marketing campaign for Crosby, but right now our resources are limited. If you would like to help us and get involved in anyway please get in touch.
