Blackpool and Fylde Coast Protection Strategy Consultation

Closes 11th November 2011.

Consultation is underway on a draft Coast Protection Strategy for Blackpool and the Fylde, together with the associated Strategic Environmental Report and other supporting documents. The draft Strategy has been produced by Blackpool Borough Council in partnership with Fylde Borough Council to manage current and future risks along the Fylde coast, where it is predicted that as sea levels rise over the next 100 years more than 23,000 homes will be at risk of coastal flooding and erosion between Kingsway, Blackpool, and Naze Point, Lytham. The draft Strategy builds on policies in the North West England and North Wales Shoreline Management Plan. 

Full details of the consultation and how to respond can be found on the North West and North Wales Coastal Group website
