As a community, we need to consider things like how we could feed Heswall through more locally produced foods. Practical considerations such as local energy, drought resistant plants, rainwater harvesting & how our landscapes and gardens deal with excessive rainfall are flagged in the Whitfield Common case study (Climate Resilient Parks).
In the longer term, we need to consider Lower Heswall’s response to coastal flooding (as our neighbours West Kirby and Parkgate have both grappled with). And most importantly, how do we increase community resilience so we are better able to deal with the climate chaos which lies ahead?
