New South East Sea Defence Scheme Receives Planning Consent

New sea defences on the South East coast between Clacton and Holland have reached a significant landmark recently, as planning permission has been granted for the £36 million project.

The sea defence scheme has been welcomed by local communities and will begin a process of substantial redevelopment of Clacton seafront. The project will involve demolishing existing timber sea defences, and protecting homes by building 23 fishtail groynes approximately 90 metres long. The development project is anticipated to last between 3 to 6 years.

The Environment Agency has contributed £27 million towards the project, with Tendring and Essex county councils providing the rest of the funds. It is believed to be biggest ever construction project in the district and was signed off last September.
