Lancaster City Council loves their beaches! They are determined to have cleaner seas by incorporating LOVEmyBEACH into the council’s [Download not found] plan. They use every opportunity to make improvements and spread the message to their staff, communities and businesses.
Local schools are pledging their support for the campaign and the Morecambe Visitor Information Centre stocks LOVEmyBEACH merchandise. Hotels and B&Bs like The Craigwell and prestigious Midland are becoming LOVEmyBEACH businesses and display bedroom browsers, leaflets and stickers. Lancaster City Council staff are getting behind the campaign learning about sources of pollution, talking to schoolchildren and have the logo on their vehicles and uniforms.
Together with Emma McColm of the Morecambe Bay Partnership, they have litter and dog poo busting events to raise awareness of how dog fouling can affect bathing water quality. In 2012 United Utilities completed a scheme at St Nicholas Lane Pumping Station near Carnforth to reduce the number of spills from the sewerage system during wet weather. There is additional improvement work at the Midland Terrace Combined Sewer Overflow proposed within the United Utilities’ investment programme 2015 to 2020.
