Update - West Beach Emergency Repairs

Following recent storm events, the remaining section of the ineffectual timber groyne at West Beach will be removed on Thursday 25th February, during the afternoon tide. Once removed, the timber structure will be taken 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 please keep clear of the compound and work area.

This groyne is being removed in line with the coastal policy to remove life-expired structures once they become a health and safety risk. The removal commenced on 19th February 2021, however, due to the tide levels not dropping to their projected levels, full removal of the structure could not be carried out.

Ongoing maintenance updates can be found here. For more information on the history of West Beach, as well as answers to some frequently asked questions, please click here.
