Broadmarsh Coastal Park Revetment Repairs: 2019

Coastal works are being carried out to stabilise the areas of rock in the revetment at Broadmarsh Coastal Park in Havant. Over the past 2 years some rock has been lost from the site, leading to the destabilisation of some of the sections of defence.

The revetment was originally constructed to protect the reclaimed land behind. Loss of further rock from these locations could risk exposing landfill and potentially pollute Langstone Harbour. Maintenance is therefore important to protect the designated harbour environment, and to reduce the health and safety risk to those using the coastal footpath. The key objectives to carrying out these works are:

  • Remove the health and safety risk to the footpath users
  • Maximise the residual life of the structure
  • Prevent pollution to Langstone Harbour


Earlcoate Construction Ltd have been appointed by Havant Borough Council to carry out the works. The work is planned to commence on Wednesday 4th December and last for a maximum of 10 days. We will aim to keep the footpath open whenever possible, however there is the possibility that the footpath will be closed to allow access with an excavator on to the footpath to carry and place the rocks. Notices and footpath diversion signs will be displayed on site should temporary closure be required. Whenever works are not on site, the footpath will be reopened.

Thank you for your co-operation while we undertake these important works. For further information please contact us at
