Lyme Regis Beach and Harbor Works About to Begin

Annual harbor dredging and beach works are set to take place in Lyme Regis this week.

The works will be carried out between 7 and 13 April when the tides are at one of their lowest points in the year.

Works are restricted to these dates as tide levels dictate the amount of access hired machinery has and certain areas are only accessible during these times.

This phase includes beach works and dredging to the harbor and Victoria’s Pool. The works will be carried out simultaneously with material being used from the dredging to replenish material lost on the beach.

David Brown, West Dorset District Council’s Head of Assets and Infrastructure, said: “These works are necessary in order to maintain navigational approaches into the harbor and ensure the beaches are returned to their intended profiles.”

The shingle beach in front of the phase two sea defenses will also be re-profiled during this time, with large excavators being used. Public access will be restricted while the machine is being used. Banksmen will be on hand to ensure public safety.
