Beach Recharge Works on the Eastoke Frontage - 2018

Beach Recharge Works on the Eastoke Frontage

As part of our ongoing Beach Management Plan for South Hayling Island, Havant Borough Council will be undertaking beach renourishment works during January and February 2018 to rebuild the beach after the recent stormy weather.

It is anticipated that these works will begin during the week commencing the 8th January, and will last for a period of 4-6 weeks. The works are to be carried out by J.T Mackley & Co. Ltd., and will involve importing shingle to the seafront via road. The material will be graded to the correct size for the beach offsite, before being brought to the seafront in trucks. The material we aim to use will be sourced from a licensed offshore dredge site, and brought to land in Portsmouth. During these works we anticipate importing approximately 8,000m3 of shingle to the beach to help reduce the risk of the coastal flooding to properties and residents of Eastoke.

The material will be stockpiled at Eastoke Corner car park; therefore for the duration of the works we will need to close the western part of the car park. Once enough material has been stockpiled in the car park we will bring in our large machinery to move the shingle on to the beach and grade to the correct profile. All the imported shingle will be deposited along the Eastoke frontage to fill any depleted groyne bats here after the storms.

Alongside these beach management works, we will also be carrying out maintenance works on the timber groynes. For further information on these works please visit the following page: Timber Maintenance 2018
