Weʼre raising £8,600 to help Formby Residents Action Group fund opposition to build houses on our local flood zones. We need expert reports and legal costs.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Formby is a small town in Merseyside that is surrounded by fields on three sides and the sea on the other.
As residents we are very proud of our community, its red squirrel reserve, long beaches and country village atmosphere. Being governed by a cash strapped Sefton Council that is based in the industrialised town of Bootle, we feel that we are not treated fairly.
Formby has many problems with drainage and surface water flooding. The surrounding fields are our protection from the water when storms come and several homes and businesses have been affected by flooding over the years. Sefton Council plan to allow building on the surrounding fields that get flooded and store the water when weather is bad. We know that the sites will cause additional flooding to homes and businesses, and will be development out of all proportion to the alleged requirements for new houses in the area.
We need to raise funds for Formby Residents Action Group (FRAG) to allow us to fight the broken and biased planning process that will undoubtedly sanction building 1000 houses around the outskirts of our town. We will need expert witnesses and legal costs to challenge the developers and Sefton Borough Council.
WE WANT TO FIGHT, PLEASE HELP US DO IT PROPERLY.
