Lyme Regis Coastal Scheme Completed

The latest major part of a project to improve sea defenses in Lyme Regis has been completed.

Phase IV, a £19.5 million plan, has focused on protecting homes, roads and infrastructure on the eastern side of the town from coastal erosion and landslips.

To mark its official opening, a ceremony will be held at 11am on Wednesday 17th June on Church Walk Cliff, the newly constructed sea wall located a short walk from the Marine Theatre.

There will be speeches and a plaque unveiling to mark the occasion, and tours of the new sea wall will be taking place for those interested in learning more about the construction.

West Dorset District Council has led the scheme with main contractor Balfour Beatty carrying out the works, which began in April 2013.

Defra funding of £14.6 million was secured in March 2012 when the Environment Agency approved the scheme. West Dorset District Council has contributed £600,000 to the works and Dorset County Council up to £4.27 million.

The district council’s land stabilization and coastal protection program has offered security for the town and safeguarded against the risk of destructive landsliding.
