Being a relative newcomer to the Fylde, this resurrection of an old plan was news to me. Do members have any views on the subject?

To be honest Phil, I thought they'd scrapped that particular scheme. I know that the residents of Knott End won't be happy if it goes ahead. All those yobs from Fleetwood having immediate access to their sleepy village! What a frightful thought!

Having said that, imagine how us Fleetwood residents would feel having all those sh**p sh*ggers heading our way.

I can't see how the scheme would ever be financed, but then who'd have thought the pier would disappear for ever?

Maybe the green agenda has revitalized the scheme?

Yet again it seems to be on according to the BBC tonight. A barrage at Fleetwood to Knott End to be generating power within 6 years after an agreement with the Duchy of Lancaster.
