St Helens Town Hall

St Helens residents can give their views on plans for homes and employment land over the next 30 years.

A public consultation is being held by St Helens Council on its plans for the borough, with a draft 30-year vision for growth, known as the preferred options of the local plan.

It sets out how many homes need to be built and how much employment land needs to be found in order to secure future growth.

Drop-in sessions are being held for people to view the plans and there is an official form for people to provide a response.

There is an online consultation form at www.sthelens.gov.uk/localplan, which people can complete or download.

Hard copies are available at the town hall’s planning reception and at libraries.

Completed forms should be returned by email to planningpolicy@sthelens.gov.uk or by post to St Helens Local Plan Preferred Options, St Helens Council, Development Plans, Town Hall, Victoria Square, St Helens, WA10 1HP.
