Sefton’s 15 Minute City

Do Bootle’s brutalist landmarks tell us that we’re looking at a town of the future? Cities from Paris to Portland and Boulder to Melbourne are aiming for a 15-minute city – where you can find everything you need to live, work and entertain you within 15 minutes of home.

Bootle’s low car ownership is coupled with cracking public transport choices – two stations, a bus exchange, a brand-new bike lane AND a canal. Is the town the future of easy-access active travel? And if we want sustainable lifestyles to stick, what does the next generation consider essential for a 15-minute radius?

From local produce to creative inspiration, how can a new approach support the local pound and help businesses grow, families thrive and health outcomes improve? What needs to grow, change and challenge?
