The council manages and maintains different types of structures on and around the Wirral coast, including:
- vertical walls
- sloped embankments
- rock revetments and breakwaters
- steps and slipways
- aids to navigation
Inspections of all coastal structures, including those in private ownership, are carried out on a regular basis. These also take place before and after storm tides to ensure major damage to seawalls is fixed as soon as possible. Whenever necessary, specialist contractors are used.
