AN OBSERVATION tower has been given the green light to open its doors after months of setbacks.

Coastwatch staff will move into the re-built Rossall Point in Fleetwood on February 28 after the latest stage of Wyre Council’s £2.1m Sea Change regeneration programme was completed.

The 42ft tower nestles in the sand dunes between the beach and the golf course at Rossall Point and was re-built to provide better views of the Irish Sea for lifesavers working from the building.

It will link the new developments on the promenade at Cleveleys and the recently completed Marine Hall Gardens improvement project in Fleetwood.

There are two observation decks which will be open to the public providing views across Morecambe Bay to the Lakeland Fells and out across the Irish Sea.

Anyone who cannot make it to the top deck will be able to enjoy the views through a screen at ground floor level.
