Special Visit to Coastal Scheme

More than 40 pupils from a primary school made a special visit to a £36 million coastal protection project being undertaken between Clacton and Holland-on-Sea.

The youngsters, who are all Junior Wardens at Frobisher Primary and Nursery, went along to find out more about the scheme and witness the work going on at first hand.

The 5 km project is currently ahead of schedule and is due to be finished in the autumn.

The scheme is being undertaken by VBA Joint Venture Limited and financed by Tendring District Council (TDC), Essex County Council and the Environment Agency.

Nick Turner, TDC’s Cabinet Member for Coastal Protection, said he was pleased that a significant number of schoolchildren are visiting the site to see the progress being made.

The new coastal defenses will protect more than 3,000 residential and commercial properties for the next 100 years and will act as a catalyst for the renaissance of the seafront.
