The Eastern Solent Coastal Partnership for Havant Borough Council successfully carried out a beach nourishment campaign along Hayling Island from the 31st October 2015 to 1st November 2015.
The campaign involved dredging approximately 6,200m³ of shingle from the approach channel to Chichester Harbor, where the shingle material has naturally built up.
It was then pumped ashore onto the beach at Eastoke, in front of the Nabb Car Park, Southwood Road, Hayling Island, maintaining the coastal flooding and erosion protection to the properties of the Eastoke Peninsula.
The work was performed by Boskalis Westminster’s trailing suction hopper dredger Sospan Dau.
