Fylde Council are aiming to submit a feasibility report to the Environment Agency in June 2021, outlining the proposed option for the replacement of the St Anne’s Sea Wall. Should it gain approval work could commence on site in January 2023 and be completed by June 2024.

Meanwhile, Helen Leeming, whose family own the popular Miniature Railway, says that the Council’s preferred option excludes the future of this long established tourist attraction. She is asking for support to save the Miniature Railway.
Helen says on the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/saveharrysdream/ ’ Do you value the Miniature Railway as an historic tourist attraction at our wonderfully traditional Victorian Seaside Resort and wish to see it continue in the future?
Currently the council are considering various options during and following the construction of the new Sea Defence Wall. Their preferred option at present excludes the future of the miniature railway, a small local business that has existed since 1956 and owned by our family from 1981. A decision is due to be made on 18th June 2020. We urgently need your support!
We are asking for help from locals and tourists so that the council can understand the strength of public feeling in this matter, and so be encouraged to find a solution that does not decrease enjoyment of our lovely area or destroy any local businesses.
