Coastal defence

Wyre Council is a member of the North West Coastal Group, a group dedicated to the management of our coastline. 

Wyre’s strategy to manage flood and coastal erosion has been developed in line with the shoreline management plan which covers the North West coast.  

The shoreline management plan provides a large-scale assessment of the risks associated with erosion and flooding at the coast. It also presents policies to help manage these risks to people and to the developed, historic and natural environment in a sustainable manner.

Our coastal defence strategy has led to the development of the Cleveleys and Rossall flood protection schemes. We are now working on the next phase which is the Wyre Beach Management scheme
