Conserve the coast; CONSERVATION.
The Sefton coast, which extends over 21 miles, is made up of soft sand, silt, clay and peat. With no rocky outcrops, the shoreline is constantly changing in response to the fluctuating influence of wind and water and as a result of human activity.
The shoreline has already been partly fixed in place by coastal defence work.
But now the second generation of shoreline management plans are being produced.
These plans will outline the best way to look after the coast in a sustainable way for the next 100 years.
But in order for them to accurately represent local people's views, they need you to get involved.
