Latest News on Coastal Erosion at Formby

The National trust have published a prediction about the extent that the Formby beach will erode over the next 100 years.
 
This follows the recent storm damage, which was the equivalent of two years erosion.

NTLogoThe ever-popular beach at Formby is the fastest eroding property in our care and it’s predicted to lose 400 metres in the next century, changing this stretch of coastline forever.

Severe storms can take large chunks of sand dunes in one event and this can be followed by some recovery as sand blows in from the beach.

Green Light For Liverpool City Region Combined Authority

Liverpool City Region Cabinet has welcomed the green light from Government to establish the Combined Authority for the City Region.

The Government is supporting the proposal by starting the legislative process by laying Orders in Parliament. This would enable the Combined Authority to come into effect on 1 April 2014. This follows on from a meeting with the City Region’s MPs in Parliament this week (11 February 2014).

The Combined Authority was recommended following a review of the strategic governance in the City Region last year, which Government subsequently consulted upon. The creation of a Combined Authority will enable the City Region to be better placed to support businesses to grow and create jobs through more efficient and effective decision making. It will encourage residents to set up their own businesses, existing businesses to grow and attract new businesses into the area.......
