Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

with the Marine lake wall closed, will WMBC be using this time effectively and efficiently tp drain the lake and repair the wall, which in parts is in need of repair?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Hutchison

As a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic, Council resources are understandably being diverted to areas of greater priority than information rights compliance. We have taken advice from the ICO and whilst your statutory right of access remains unchanged, all information requests will be subject to delays and we ask for your patience and understanding during this time.

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Hutchinson

 

We write in response to your recent request for information, dealt with
under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

 

Your enquiry stated; “…with the Marine lake wall closed, will WMBC be
using this time effectively and efficiently tp drain the lake and repair
the wall, which in parts is in need of repair?”

 

In response we can advise that the walkway at West Kirby Marine Lake was
closed due to social distancing reasons, in line with the Council’s first
priority during the Covid-19 lockdown, which is the preservation of life.

 

The draining of the lake and repairing of the walkway, in addition to
removing the invasive Sargassum Muticum and removal of windblown sand, are
all inter-related issues that require careful consideration and
coordination with a number of outside agencies.  Full communication is
required with regulators such as Natural England, Marine Management
Organisation, Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales and the North
West Inshore Fisheries Conservation Authority and until all licences,
assents and permissions are in place, no work will be undertaken which
requires such regulation.

 

We trust this satisfies your enquiry.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr Hutchinson

 

Further to your follow up email of 24 April 2020, we can confirm that all
