During the storms of winter 2013/14 scouring below the sea wall’s foundations caused damage to the footpath behind. Whilst the footpath was repaired immediately, further work is needed to ensure the integrity of the wall, to contain the historic landfill site to the rear and to ensure the future safety of pedestrians.
Works commenced 6th October 2014; the £175,000 cost was paid for by Government funding awarded specifically to this project.
Sheet piling was installed close to the front of the existing wall, to form a barrier to future wave action. The finished works have effectively added an additional step down in front of the original wall.
This project was undertaken with Marine Management Organisation (MMO) approval, which involved consultation with the relevant authorities and organisations, given the nature and position of this site.
