Users of Clevedon’s Marine Lake are being asked to give their thoughts on the £1.1million restoration project.

North Somerset Council wants to hear people’s thoughts on the scheme, largely backed by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), which was completed in 2015.

The project was run alongside groups including Marine Lake Enthusiasts (MARLENS), Clevedon Civic Society and the town council.

The £800,000 HLF grant was given to improve the lake’s sea wall, install a larger sluice gate, remove 16,000 tonnes of silt and provide better access.

The money was also earmarked to help pay for a two-year programme of activities following the project’s completion.

The consultation period ends at midnight on November 19.
