Sefton Council is continuing to explore development and investment proposals for the town centre following its unsuccessful Levelling Up Fund bid in 2021 for a range of schemes to revitalise Crosby town centre after the COVID-19 pandemic.
Entitled ‘Reimagining Crosby’ the revitalisation includes plans for a new, state-of-the-art library in the town centre along with health facilities and additional living spaces.
The strong focus on making Crosby more pedestrian and cycle friendly is in line with the Council climate emergency declaration and commitment to active travel.
This will remove barriers, enhance the ease of movement and improve access to the public spaces in and around the Centre, making them more user friendly for all kinds of journeys. Improvement to town centre parking is included in the bid, with additional spaces provided, as well as electric vehicle charging points. Consultation took place in November 2021 on the car parking and access proposals.
The proposals would support the recovery of Crosby improving access to local services, diversifying what the town can offer and encouraging people to stay for longer.
