The Coastal SIG’s AGM and field trips are being hosted this year with Blackpool Council, from 30 June – 2 July. The event is being sponsored by Balfour Beatty, and this sponsorship will cover the cost of field trips, travel in Blackpool, food and refreshments. This means that payment is only required for the hotel for the nights that you are there, and your own transport to and from Blackpool. Please see click on the links at the bottom of this update to view the invitation from Cllr Fred Jackson, Blackpool Council, as well as the itinerary and booking forms.

Many of you have reserved places so please complete the necessary details and return to Lucy Williams by Wednesday 10 June. Other bookings still welcome – please get in touch!

Blackpool have been proactive in the works and funding for their coastal town, and regeneration will be the focus for the field trips and learning this year. This is also a great way to introduce any new Members or officers to the Coastal SIG and see the benefits that it holds for Local Authorities.
