FRAGOFF formed in 2012 to fight development on the green belt, initially it involved a group of residents living around the Farmers field between Alt Rd, Liverpool Rd and Formby bypass. Soon people further away started to take an interest as developers snapped up more land in Formby, Maghull and Aintree. Since then FRAGOFF has fought against Sefton's Local Plan and spoke up at the public inquiry representing residents concerns about infrastructure, loss of protected habitat, traffic congestion and flooding and drainage, all likely to suffer under the strain of new development. Most recently members of FRAGOFF fought along side residents at Andrews Lane as they tried to defeat a development on farmland near Hoggs Hill Lane Railway Crossing. Residents in the upcoming battles will benefit greatly from the lessons learned in their struggle and we extend our thanks.
Thanks for all those who turned up, it was very well attended. There were many interesting questions raised and requests for additional information. Please find the links that people asked for and information on how to onject here. Thanks for the donations on the night and the as we delivered our leaflets.
St Lukes Church Rd Formby.
Did you know that FRAG members on the Parish Council and in the Sefton Council are fighting for access along St Lukes Church Road Formby. This stretch of Rd would successfully claimed as a byway open to all traffic by Formby Civic Society in 1998. However the order was never eneacted by Council Officers in a shocking dereliction of duty! Formby Parish Council have submitted a claim to the Rd however Sefton Council are currently seeking private agreements with land owners to reduce the level of access to this right of way. Watch this space!
