Story

For many decades, Hoylake was renowned for its golden sands – a beautiful amenity beach for use by young and old alike and with a plethora of wading birds for good measure!

In the 1980’s, Hoylake Beach was granted the status of Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) by Natural England. With the support of Wirral Borough Council’s (WBC’s) beach management programme, this meant that man and nature co-existed in harmony and in line with the demands of being an SSSI. Regular raking of the beach ensured that Spartina grass, which is regularly found in coastal salt marshes, did not become the dominant force on the beach.

With the beach management programme ceasing in 2019, Spartina grass is rapidly taking over inhabiting Hoylake Beach, having an impact on both birdlife and human enjoyment of the beach. And whilst we’re aware that there are some unusual species growing too, we would like to find ways to reinstate the amenity beach for the benefit of all, and with little compromise to other plants and wildlife.

We believe that there’s room on the beach to accommodate everyone’s needs!

As a group of Hoylake residents, we are seeking funds to help us work to restore Hoylake Amenity Beach for both us and for future generations. These funds will cover campaign costs and any professional fees we may require.
