Memorial benches on South Parade in West Kirby

Wirral Council is working on a flood defence scheme in West Kirby. It runs along South Parade, between Riversdale Road and Sandy Lane. The council is looking at ways it could include seating within the flood defence.

As a result of the new structure, existing benches will be replaced and plaques will need to be moved. The council will be contacting registered owners of benches to discuss their wishes.

Existing memorial plaques may be re-located. This could either be within the new seating areas of the flood defence, or within a defined memorial area.

Due to this work, we are currently unable to accept new requests for memorial benches at South Parade. We realise that this may be upsetting. We would encourage you to consider another location for your proposed memorial bench. You also have the option to wait until we confirm how memorial plaques will be included within the flood defence.
