A HALF-a-million pound project to restore the dunes along the Fylde coast will begin in March thanks to new funding.

Fylde Council has already been awarded £220,000 from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), to improve the dunes as a flood defence and protect them from coastal erosion.

With another Defra funding boost in the pipeline, and an additional grant from Fylde Council, the money will exceed £500,000 to also help improve the dunes as a natural habitat.
