Wirral Council is looking at solutions to reduce the risk of tidal flooding at South Parade and wants feedback from local residents.
While the tidal flooding (pictured) encountered during the 2013-14 winter was an exceptional occurrence, Wirral Council believes that the risk of flooding will increase in years ahead.
The Council has published this page with a link to their current proposals and have provided the details of local drop-in sessions where officers from Wirral Council and key agencies will be available to talk about the proposals and answer your questions.
So far, the favoured flood barrier is a new, permanent wall along South Parade with three options being put forward. Funding is not yet in place for any proposal.
A permanent wall would either be built in place of the railings along the front edge of the promenade (below left) or be built towards the rear edge of the promenade (below centre), incorporating access points at regular intervals. A further alternative would be to incorporate the defence within improved promenade landscaping (below right).
