South Hayling Beach Management - March 2024

With funding secured from the Environment Agency, Havant Borough Council will be carrying out the next beach recycling campaign along the Eastoke frontage to reduce the risk of coastal flooding and erosion to properties and infrastructure.

Beach recycling is the movement of material from areas of beach build up to areas of erosion. This helps to restore beach levels and increase the standard of protection against flooding at Eastoke, Hayling Island. This beach recycling campaign will reinstate the beach crest following  the winter season.

The site of the works is the southern Eastoke frontage at Hayling Island, between Inn on the Beach and the rock structure at Eastoke Point.

The works will be carried out by Ovenden Earthmoving Co Ltd, and you should expect to see heavy machinery such as dumper trucks, excavators, and bulldozers on site.

The majority of material for this operation will be extracted from the open beach between the Eastoke Corner car park and Inn-on-the-Beach and some material will be imported to site via road. Works will start on site week commencing Monday 4th March 2024 and will be completed by Friday 27th March 2024 ahead of the Easter holidays.

Working hours are between 6am and 10pm, Monday to Friday. Our Contractors have suggested that working hours will be between 7am and 7pm on a standard day. Please be aware that there will be machinery working and be vigilant of this when using the beach.
