Dog walkers asked to avoid parts of Sefton coastline

Dog walkers are being advised to avoid parts of Sefton’s coastline as work to remove an invasive plant species, which has taken over parts of the borough’s coastline, takes place.

The coastline, which is home to rare species including lizards and natterjacks in its dune habitat, is being threatened by the rapid growth of Japanese Rose that is capable of out-competing native species.

Throughout December and January, a team from Natural England will be using diggers to bury the plants where they are found.

Green Sefton said that people should “give contractors space, follow diversions and keep dogs on lead” while the work is being carried out.
