You will be aware, with the increasing height of the beach, wind blown sand has become a serious issue in Hoylake. Blowing onto roads and pavements, making them inaccessible and blocking the drains. (More images at end of blog).
Hoylake Beach Community (HBC) has recently had some positive engagement with Wirral Borough Council about the sand issue. An agreement has been reached which allows HBC to put up netting from Kings Gap to the new Lifeboat station.
The aim is to reduce the amount of wind blown sand leaving the
beach which in turn should reduce the councils costs for clearing the sand from the pavements and roads.
Dozens of volunteers from Hoylake Beach Community over the last few days have been busily working away and are almost finished.
The netting has been paid for by the supporters of Hoylake Beach Community - thank you to all who have contributed, this will really help to maintain our beloved Hoylake.
HBC are still campaigning for the restoration of PART* of Hoylake beach for recreation & relaxation with the remaining part being left to re-wild for nature and wildlife.*The section along North Parade from Kings Gap to the New RNLI station. JOIN US ON FACEBOOK SEARCH: HOYLAKE BEACH COMMUNITY
