The Sefton Coast Life Project was a local partnership initiative co-financed by the EU Life-Nature fund. It ran from 1995 to 1999. The local funding partners were Sefton Council's Leisure Services and Planning Departments, English Nature and the National Trust. The cooperation of these partners was able to draw down some 350,000 of additional funding to support nature conservation management along the Sefton Coast. Project activities included land purchase, habitat restoration, species recovery actions, working with golf courses and military sites, the production of site management plans and the Conservation Strategy for the Sefton Coast cSAC.

The Quality of Coastal Towns Project was a trans-national project, co-financed by the EU Interreg IIC fund, which addresses the development of sustainable tourism in coastal regions. It ran for 2 years from 1999 to 2001. The project was led by the province of North Holland with partners in the Netherlands, Belgium and the UK. Sefton Council is the lead authority for the involvement of Merseyside partners. The project has focused on the development of tourism strategies, visitor surveys, an assessment of visitor facilities and transportation issues, especially on the Sefton Coast and the Wirral/Dee Estuary area.
