History lies in dust
Photographs by Patrick Trollope.

FORMBY lost its last historic sign of its past independence as demolition of Formby's Council Offices took place this week.   Its fate was sealed in a committee meeting in July 2000, when the sale of the site was put forward to the area committee.   Despite overwhelming support to save the building with 5,000 opposed to the sale, Bootle sold the building to property developers McCarthy & Stone. In March 2002 they were granted planning permission to pull down the building.  With in the last few days starting on April 22 work commenced.  With in 2 days most of the neo-Elizabethan structure had been reduced to rubble to make way for the controversial development of 85 retirement flats.  

The building had been built in 1926 and completed in 1927, with 2 classrooms, sanitation inspectors office, surveyor, offices for Clark, committee room and library.  It was used as the main hart of Formby up to 1974 when Sefton took over local government meetings stopped being held in the office.  The building was then left in a slow state of neglect.
