Sefton MBC gives residents
formal notice about proposed Nation Trust deal
ON 8 March 2017, Sefton Council
published its formal notice to alert residents in and around Sefton that they
are considering the disposal of land to the Northern and Southern side of Life
Boat Road, known as Formby Point. The exact area can be seen on the map below.
If agreed, it would see more than 204 hectares become part of the National Trust
Formby portfolio. The area is home to one of the very best mobile sand dune
habitats in the entire UK.
The dunes themselves offer a home to some of the UK's rarest wildlife
including:- Sand Lizards, Northern Dune Tiger Beetles and the scarce Natterjack
Toad. The pine woods that fringe the coast are also home to the iconic Red
The land at Lifeboat Road adjoins an area whose significance is reflected by it
being part of the Sefton Coast of Special Scientific Interest; a Special Area of
Conservation and Special Protection Area for birds.
The area also includes the remains of the World's 1st Lifeboat Station, on the
beach at Formby Point. This piece of history is rapidly disappearing and many
hope that some type of protection might be put in place to stop its erosion.
Other sections of this land include the remains of World War 2 gun emplacements,
a Cold War Bunker and even a hidden (land locked) promenade!
Also please note that any objections or representations to the proposed disposal
must be made in writing and addressed to:-
Mr David Street
Assets and Property Manager
30, Trinity Street
Your objections must be made to the above Sefton MBC address no later than 22
