Update - West Beach Emergency Repairs

Following recent storms, the isolated groyne (no.54) at West Beach has suffered irreparable damage and is posing a significant health and safety risk. This groyne is no longer effective at holding beach material, and will therefore be removed from the beach on Friday 19th February 2021 over low tide.

Some of the work may be undertaken during non-daylight hours to coincide with the low tide, with appropriate safety precautions in place. The timber structure will be removed to the work compound located in the former West Beach car park, which is currently in use for our beach management works. For your safety we would appreciate if you remain clear of both the compound and work area.

Here are ongoing maintenance updates and for more information on the history of West Beach, as well as answers to some frequently asked questions.
