4.0 To receive an update on the Grouping Order for the purpose of forming a grouped parish council with Little Altcar Parish Council to be known as Formby and Little Altcar Parish Council
The Clerk updated members on the Grouping Order request. It was noted that Formby and Little Altcar Parish Meetings had resolved to approve for the two parishes to form a grouped parish council under a Grouping Order in December 2018. However, Sefton Legal Department had advised that this request was received too late to become a “made order” prior to the May 2019 parish council elections, and it was advised that the business case for a grouping order should be submitted in 2022 for the 2023 parish council elections.
Members reviewed the grouping order business case proposal and the Chairman requested that this should be forwarded to Sefton Council by July.
It was resolved to approve the Business Case Proposal for the Grouping Order to be sent to Sefton Council by July 2022.
5.0 To receive the attendance list of Formby Parish Councillors for the previous year
Members noted the attendance list which is available on the website to view and in appendix 1.
