Forton Coastal Defence Scheme - August 2022 Update

A number of risks have been realised on site, including the presence of a badger sett and the impacts of construction cost inflation, which have put the project under significant pressure. Construction work has been put on hold until further notice. 

Reinstatement work will begin later this month, and the site re-opened to the public by the end of September. 

A plan for resuming delivery of the project is being developed.
