SITE INFORMATION

Our Website and Reports together with Seftons Local Plan give many reasons why this land should be retained to provide a Nature Reserve for all to enjoy.

The playing fields are adjacent to the Sefton Coast Site of Special Scientific Interest

(SSSI) and Special Area of Conservation (SAC), and support a fixed-dune vegetation which is listed as a priority for conservation (Annex 1 of the EU Habitats Directive.)

Discovery of five new regionally or nationally notable species during a recent survey adds further conservation interest to the playing fields which may merit Local Wildlife Site status.

Many rare plants and animal wildlife have been identified.

The playing fields at this location were created by flattened sand dunes, a Nature Reserve would revert the land to its original state.

Development which may have an adverse effect on internationally important nature sites will only be permitted where it can be demonstrated that there are both no alternatives and imperative reasons of overriding public interest.


PUBLIC MEETING @ MEREFIELD SPECIAL SCHOOL WESTMINSTER DRIVE, AINSDALE . PR8 2QZ THURSDAY 5TH MARCH 7PM.

Doors open 6-30pm

We as a Trust will be submitting our letter of opposition to the Local Plan and it will be made available on our website.

This location is without doubt magical and is an asset to both Ainsdale and Sefton.

Once it has gone, it is lost forever.

The environmental richness of the area will enable us to provide a nature reserve for all to enjoy now and for future generations.

For further information please contact any of the Trustees

WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT.
