Frontage 6


South Parade Pier & Canoe Lake
South Parade Pier


The area along Souths Parade Pier and Canoe Lake is currently still in its final Design stage.

This means that our design team are working with specialists, coastal engineers and the contractor to work out how the proposed design can be best implemented to create a functioning sea defence that works for all in this specific area.

The proposed design for the sea defences here is:

  • Similar to the area between the Pyramids and South Parade Pier, beach replenishment will extend the existing beach and a long-term management plan will be implemented to maintain the level of shingle as and when required. A stepped revetment defence with a buried rock toe will provide continuous access across the frontage, designed to be kept out of the tidal zone and covered by shingle in normal conditions.
  • Majority of promenade and road both raised by around 0.5m meaning no interruption to sea views.
  • Some on-street parking and existing car park retained.
  • Dwarf walls, grass bunds, flood gates or existing high ground provides secondary protection.
