All Ready for Skegness Sea Defense Project

Construction of a new sea defense and widening of the Skegness seafront promenade is scheduled to start this month.

People who live and work in the area have been invited to a drop-in session to learn more about the scheme.

Plans will be on display and members of the project team will be available to answer questions on Wednesday, 18 February from noon to 4pm at the Embassy Theatre in Skegness.

The work is to replace the sea wall located between the RNLI station and Scarborough Esplanade, which was damaged by the 2013 tidal surge.

Initial work was completed at the end of last year to clear the area of sand, which had built up over the years, to investigate for weak points in the sea defense, and to identify any buried services such as electricity supply cables.

The designs have now been finalized and construction of the new wall will begin this month. Work will pause during the Easter and May bank holidays, as well as the busy summer period from June to September, to avoid disruption. Construction will restart in September and is expected to finish before Christmas.

Improvements to the promenade, which will double its width and install 140m of seating along its 300m length, have been funded by East Lindsey District Council.
