Almost £2m in funding to repair part of Morecambe’s flood defences has been approved by city councillors.

The council’s cabinet agreed on Monday to accept the grant offer from the Environment Agency to enable reconstruction of the Wave Reflection Wall from Happy Mount Park to Morecambe Town Hall when received.

The wave reflection wall was built between 1981 and 1986 following the major storm and flooding events in 1977 and 1983.

But it is now in need of repair and the offer of a 100 per cent grant, split over two years, is welcomed.
