Pathhead Sands Coastal Scheme Presented

Fife Coast and Countryside Trust has introduced a plan to overhaul the Pathhead Sands by creating new dunes to combat the effects of coastal erosion.

These new dunes will be formed by extracting sand from an area near the mouth of Kirkcaldy Harbor, announced The Courier.

A report prepared by the trust said that establishing new dunes is the best way to preserve the area in years to come.

An extreme weather event in 2010 impacted heavily on the hard engineering and now with the projected sea level rises and potential increases in extreme weather events, the return to a coastal dune system will be a cheaper and more sustainable option for the management of this site,” stated the report.

“The proposed changes will protect this stretch of coastline and help to improve the condition of habitats, protect species and promote biodiversity.”

Work will begin in September and will be concluded before November so as not to affect wintering birds.
