Project overview

The Fylde Peninsula Coastal Programme (FPCP) is a partnership between Wyre Council, Blackpool Council, Fylde Borough Council, the Environment Agency, Lancashire County Council and United Utilities. Balfour Beatty has been appointed as the main contractor to construct the £86million coastal defence schemes at Rossall and Anchorsholme, which will greatly reduce the risk of flooding to the local community. Working with the FPCP, Balfour Beatty will be delivering two kilometres of coastal defence from Rossall Hospital to Rossall Point. In Anchorsholme, a one kilometre coastal sea wall will be developed from Kingsway to Little Bispham.

Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS)

The Rossall and Anchorsholme coastal defence schemes are registered to Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS). The Considerate Constructors Scheme is the national initiative set up by the construction industry to improve its image.

Construction sites and companies that register with the Scheme are monitored against a Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements. This initiative encourages contractors to give a commitment over and above the legal minimum site requirements regarding:

  • Cleanliness

  • Responsibility

  • Quietness

  • Tidiness

  • Safety

  • Accountability

The Scheme is concerned about any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole. The main areas of concern fall into three categories: the general public, the workforce and the environment.
