Anchorsholme Park

We'll be busy in Anchorsholme Park over the next few years, working to increase and enhance the sewer network. Playing our part to help improve bathing water quality across the Fylde coast.

So what are we doing?

Phase 1

We've constructed an underground stormwater storage tank (around 30 metres deep and 30 metres in diameter) which will be capable of holding around 12,000m3 of stormwater. That's equivalent to around 12 million sandcastle buckets! The tank is now connected into the existing sewer network and we have installed new lengths of sewer and a new control unit. This phase of work started in mid-February 2015 and was completed in Summer 2016.

Phase 2

Now that we've completed phase 1, we're due to start on our larger phase of work.  We will be constructing a new stormwater pumping station which will replace the existing station on the promenade, build a new screening chamber and control buildings, along with laying a new extended outfall pipe which would discharge the excess screened stormwater out to sea.  Once on site we expect this phase of work would take around three years to complete.
