Liberal Democrat councillors Sue McGuire and Tony Dawson are asking Sefton Council to apply to the Coastal Communities Fund for money to renovate the Marine Lake Railings.
The Fund has recently received a boost of £90 million which can be used for project to regenerate seaside towns.
Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group Cambridge Ward Councillor Sue McGuire explained:
“Everyone agrees that the railings on the Marine Lake are in an appalling state and really let Southport down. So, I’ve asked Margaret Carney if we can apply for a grant from this fund to renovate them.
We have to move quickly as there will be many other demands on this fund.”
Town centre councillor Tony Dawson agrees:
“We’ve been told that cuts to Sefton Council’s central budget mean there is no spare money available to do this work so we have had to look to alternate funding sources.
There are some ‘Section 106’ funds available from Planning applications to spend in central areas of town but there are many other projects which this could be spent on and it would be great if we could get the government to pay to bring the Marine Lake railings up to scratch.”
