For many years now we have been advocating that Sefton Council should build or promote affordable housing in the centre of Crosby village. It has taken some considerable time, but finally we see that our message has been heard by several private-sector developers.
A great deal has happened since that day in March, when our lifestyles changed so dramatically. Now as summer appears and we ease ourselves carefully out of lockdown we face the “new norm” with a good deal of optimism. Why? Well we are fortunate.
For the mass majority of the population, the easing of the lockdown restrictions has provided an opportunity to begin to return to some state of normality. The art of social distancing has been well practiced as has the regime involved in supermarket shopping.
Our top priority has always been to support people, protect jobs and businesses through this crisis. The furlough and self-employment schemes have been a lifeline for millions of people and businesses.
