Fylde Council are excited to announce the continuation of the St Annes Sea Wall project.
After a six-month delay, the project is again underway, with the designer Jacobs UK having been appointed to carry out the detailed design of the scheme and the contractor Volker Stevin appointed to assist them.
Fylde Council will be requesting your feedback once the initial design layouts and images of the proposed sea wall have been created. These initial designs will be available for viewing at a public exhibition to be held in summer 2022.
The opinions and suggestions received by residents following the public exhibition would be used, alongside the continuing engagement on an individual basis with local businesses and organisations affected by the works, to inform the final design.
Cllr Thomas Threlfall, Chair of the Environment, Health and Housing Committee, said: “I’m deeply encouraged that Fylde Council are endeavouring to seek the opinions of the public as this project moves forward. As something that affects all residents and visitors alike, this is in part their project, and I would encourage everyone to have their say once the exhibition is open.”
The detailed design will take until Christmas 2022 after which a further public exhibition is planned. At this point a planning application will be submitted, together with a marine licence application.
It is anticipated that work on the site could begin in Autumn 2023, with a speculative completion date of early 2025.
