About this event

Lancaster City Council has secured £10m of funding from the Environment Agency for a Capital Maintenance scheme to replace the existing Wave Reflection Wall along Morecambe seafront.

The existing wall, which was built in the 1980s and runs the length of the promenade, protects approximately 12,000 properties from flooding. It has now started to deteriorate and needs to be brought back to a good standard.

The first phase of the project will see the replacement of 1,800 metres of the wall on Marine Road East between Lord Street and Happy Mount Park incorporating new surfacing, seating and lighting.

CIWEM NW meeting in conjunction with ICE Lancashire, sponsored by VBA JV Ltd.
