Grange Promenade Enhancements

Closes 27 Mar 2020

Opened 14 Feb 2020

Overview

South Lakeland District Council are progessing with plans to repair and enhance Grange Promenade, as part of a wider Coastal Communities funded project to grow Morecambe Bay as a visitor destination. This is being delivered with Morecambe Bay Partnership through the Morecambe Bay Coastal Communities Team’s ‘Explore Morecambe Bay’ initiative.

Along with plans to completely replace and repair the sea wall and coastal defences that form part of the historic Promenade, new Art Deco inspired interpretation panels, street lighting and surfacing improvements are proposed to bring an enhanced offer along the Promenade, which will complement the light touch refurbishment scheme for Grange Lido.

The plans for the Promenade also include a new play area, and SLDC would be interested in hearing from residents who want to get involved in the redesign of the Promenade Playground, located next to Emma’s Café.

South Lakeland District Council are seeking input from Grange-over-Sands residents to contribute towards the development of new interpretation panels to be installed on the Promenade.

The panels will be installed along the length of the Promenade, forming part of the enhancements works and will celebrate the unique history and location of Grange-over-Sands.

The themes that have been advocated include the following:

Flora and Fauna of the Bay

Birdlife of the Bay

Tides of the Bay

The History of Grange

Proposed Location near Grange Station

Potential Locations of the Panels

Why We Are Consulting

We want to hear from Grange-over-Sands residents and interested organisations to ensure the content captures the essence of Grange and its distinctive nature.

The images portray our architect’s proposed designs, which have been developed in consultation with Grange Town Council, District Councillors and Grange Promenade Gardeners, and include a panel for information that will be included as part of the installation.

We would welcome contributions from the community of any pictures, stories or insights that we could incorporate within the information panels.

More information will be communicated to residents when a final programme of works is available for both the Lido and Promenade works, as we will endeavour to minimise disruption for residents.
