Improvement works will commence this week to restore the sloping gradient of Lytham Green.

The works which are fully funded by Cuffe and Taylor will remove the ‘step’ in the middle of the green which impacts on many activities and regular users. The area of the green where the slope will be restored previously had sports and recreation pitches built into the original gradient, the work will make the site safer for all users as well as improving disability access.

The project is being carried out by BPG Contractors Limited on behalf of Cuffe and Taylor and will commence on Wednesday 9th March. It is expected to take around four to five weeks to complete the work which includes removal of the grass and re-establishing the ground to create a continuous soft gradient. The area will then be protected while the grass re-establishes.

Councillor Michael Sayward, Chair of the Tourism and Leisure committee for Fylde Council said: “Lytham Green is a treasured and deeply beloved attraction of the borough and has long been a source of great delight for residents and visitors alike.

“This work is essential in ensuring the area can continue to be enjoyed safely for many years to come and does not need to be funded by our residents.”
