We love the beach!
Our aim is to create new defences that embrace everything we all love about the seafront. One of those things is the beach, which is a great place to relax and enjoy views of the Solent.
It also serves another purpose – the shingle provides a first line of defence against the waves that pound our seafront on a regular basis! For this reason, our plans will include soft engineering techniques to ensure a healthy level of beach is maintained in the places where one exists at the moment.
Experts from Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership have been studying how the shingle moves along the beach, including using special hi-tech pebbles! Find out more on their website at www.escp.org.uk.
