Save The Ribble

A blog dedicated to preserving the beauty and delicate ecosystem of the River Ribble, and opposing the Riverworks 'vision' to build a barrage on our River and develop on our riverbanks, floodplains and green spaces, causing damage to wildlife and the environment and increasing the risk of flooding to our homes.

Fylde Borough Council and Freckleton Parish Council support the Save the Ribble Campaign

Fylde Borough Council have joined Freckleton in opposing the barrage proposal.
Freckleton Parish Council support our campaign ‘and would object most strongly to any barrage being built across the river Ribble’, and Fylde Borough Council, keen to promote eco-tourism in their borough, recognise that a barrage would damage the Ribble's ecosystem and are opposed to a barrage on the River Ribble.

This illustrates that Preston City Council's "vision" for the Ribble will have implications for a number of communities along the Ribble corridor, far beyond the boundaries of their own jurisdiction.
