Update on removal of windblown sand at Crosby Coastal Park

07 November 2023 1 min read

Owing to repairs being carried out on our Telehandler, the specialist piece of equipment we use for sand removal, visitors to Crosby Coastal Park may start to notice a greater level of sand than usual on the coastal footpaths.


A Sefton Council spokesperson said: “As on any coastline, pathways will always be prone to windblown sand,

"This is a massive natural process that has been shaping our coastline for millennia and will continue to do so for many more thousands of years.

"As people will understand this is an inevitable outcome of living by such a beautiful and dynamic landscape.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this natural build-up of sand may cause and advise visitors to take extra care when travelling along these footpaths.

Inspections and maintenance

“Our Green Sefton team, who manage the coast, carry out regular inspections and maintenance to ensure that these coastal footpaths and cycleways are kept as clear as possible in line with the limited resources available."
