The coastal defences at Hill Head consist of the beach, groynes and a seawall. In recent years beach levels have fallen, exposing the sea defences to additional and increased wave action. As a result the existing defences along the frontage have now reached the end of their lifecycle and cannot be expected to last. The defences being replaced are in poor condition, becoming very poor with bad weather on a frequent basis leading to extensive closures of the promenade.
The Hill Head Coastal Protection Project consists of two phases. Phase 1 works, starting 30th August 2016 involve re-nourishing the historically low beach levels and implementing extensive groyne maintenance. Phase 2, subject to obtaining consents and funding, is due to start in summer 2017, will replace failing sea defences and promenade.
