‘Dynamic Dunescape’ project to protect wildlife in Cleethorpes’ dunes

A new ‘Dynamic Dunescape’ project in the dunes behind the boating lake aims to support wildlife by creating a diverse habitat for them to live in, Cleethorpes Beach Safety reported.

The work, which takes place every five years, will involve removing some shrubs over the next three weeks in order for a range of both old and new vegetation to grow.

This will reportedly result in wildlife – such as birds, insects and wildflowers (like orchids) – receiving better conditions to thrive in.

The Dynamic Dunescape project ensures that Cleethorpes beach not only looks inviting, but also helps the environment, now and for many years to come.

However, the project’s commencement means that the path behind the boating lake has been closed temporarily.

Cleethorpes Beach Safety have recommended taking the alternative route through the boating lake until works are completed.

Whilst other projects would result in the burning of removed vegetation, the Beach Safety team working on the Dynamic Dunescape project will be cutting theirs down into wood chips to be taken to a biomass site.

This will not only improve their carbon footprint but also provide the biomass site with a low-carbon energy source.
