The project team comprising staff representing the council, designers Jacobs UK, and the contractor Volker Stevin will be at hand to lead visitors through the project and answer any queries they may have.

Coun Tommy Threlfall, chair of the Fylde Council’s environment, health and housing committee, said: "This is a vital project to better defend our residents and businesses against the effects of changing climate, and I’m pleased that people will be able to contribute their views. I would encourage everyone to have their say, whether in person or online.”

A section of the planned new seawall for St Annes

The purpose of the project is to provide better flood and erosion protection to more than 500 properties and businesses over the next hundred years by providing a £12.1m new seawall around the Island Site. The existing ageing 90-year-old structure is nearing the end of its design life and is at increasing risk of overtopping and structural damage.

The opinions and suggestions received by residents following the public exhibition will be used, alongside the continuing engagement on an individual basis with local businesses and organisations affected by the works, to inform the final design.

For those unable to attend on the day, the display boards will be available for viewing each weekday at the Town Hall up to and including Monday, August 8, from 9am to 5pm.

The display boards, with the opportunity to comment, will also be available digitally at www.fylde.gov.uk
