Coastal site earmarked for new conservation scheme

ONE site off the Lincolnshire coast has been put forward as a potential marine conservation area.

The Lincolnshire Belt, stretching 35km from the Humber Estuary to Anderby Creek will be on the list, the post-glacial landscape provides shelter for sessile animals such as sea anemones.

The site is part of 127 proposed sites across England that were unveiled as requiring the conservation’s care.

Paul Learoyd, Chief Executive of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, said: “Our marine wildlife isn’t protected yet, but we are getting closer.

“The Government still has to decide if all the sites will be formally designated, how they will be managed and what activities can or cannot take place within them.”
