Recreation Mitigation Strategy

West Lancashire BC and the Liverpool City Region local authorities are working together to prepare a joint Recreation Mitigation Strategy ('RMS').  This involves looking at the recreational use of publicly accessible coast and green spaces in the area.  The Strategy will help inform the protection of European designated habitats sites from recreational pressures.  Sites include the southern part of the Ribble Estuary and Martin Mere within West Lancashire as well as the nearby Sefton Coast.

An online survey is available for completion to help us understand the types and patterns of use of coast and green spaces.

If you want to find out more, the Merseyside Environmental Advisory Service has prepared background information and frequently asked questions about the joint RMS:

A joint SPD will be prepared by WLBC and the Liverpool City Region Authorities to deal with the matter of recreation mitigation.
